What is Talent?
Gain further insight and share knowledge with other coaches working in similar talent settings
This is the first workshop in the Talent Foundation Series and is for high-performing coaches with an interest in talent development, working, or having a desire to work, with emerging athletes within the England Talent Pathway. You will explore the definition, understanding and research associated with talent in sport, discussing the implications for you and your athletes/players with coaches from other sports.
Because the nature of talent development is so varied, your workshop experience will be very much focused on what you and the rest of the group want to get out of that particular workshop, meaning you get a highly relevant, personalised experience.
