England Athletics International Jumps and Throws Conference 2023

The England Athletics International Jumps and Throws Conference will take place on 25 and 26 March 2023, at Loughborough University, Loughborough, UK.

The conference forms part of the England Athletics Talent Coach and Athlete Development Programme. It will involve a series of practical sessions, keynotes, and workshops led by international and expert practitioners in their field.

The theme of the conference is ‘Coaching the Adaptable Athlete’. We will consider the role of the coach in preparing athletes for what’s to come: the competition environment and their development journey

The conference brings together some of the world’s leading coaches and specialist practitioners. The practitioners will present and discuss the key biopsychosocial themes important to developing athletes; in planning, performance strength and conditioning, technical development, and psycho-social aspects in developing excellence

There is something for everyone who has an interest in coaching athletics. If you are a club coach, talent coach, performance coach, or a coach working with disability athletes, then this conference has something to offer you. It will be a great opportunity for you to connect, collaborate and take inspiration from fellow coach practitioners

Immerse yourself over one, two days or online in our inspiring practical and theory sessions. Challenge yourself and create more opportunities to support and develop your coaching career. On the Saturday evening, we will be hosting a celebration dinner which will include an after-dinner question and answers session with some of the key presenters from the weekend
