These casual lunch & learn events are a great opportunity for Coaches and Sport Administrators to learn from presenters in various fields and network with other coaches. We meet every 2 months, usually on the 2nd Thursday of the month. There is no fee to attend; however, if you'd like a bite to eat, that's on you. We wish we could treat our community coaches to lunch every time we meet!!
Every event is at our Community FoodStuff Program Partner location, Frick and Frack Restaurant & Taphouse:
577 Victoria Street

NOV 16th - LICENSURE FOR STRENGTH COACHES & TRAINERS
with Greg Kozoris, Exercise Physiologist and owner of Acceleration Kozoris Strength & Conditioning
Discussion will explore a trending hot topic on why personal trainers /strength coaches/any trainer, working with athletes in small, large, or one-on-one one settings, may in future have to meet government and national credential expectancies/standards when strength training all groups. Who are the governing bodies with the qualifications to oversee licensure, if mandated? How will licensure be implemented and regulated? Join us! This one is sure to be a great conversation!
SEP 28th - ATHLETE RESILIENCE (Coaches Week Appreciation Event)
with Scott Clark, TRU Basketball Men's Head Coach
What the best athletes and the most successful people have in common is not that they do not make mistakes. They all do. However, they have an incredible ability to recover from these mistakes. Simply stated, it is the ability to bounce back positively after a mistake, mishap, loss or ANY negative situation. What is critical to realize, is that resiliency is not a personality trait or behavioral style. Resiliency is a skill anyone can learn.
