This is the first workshop in the Talent Foundation Series and is for 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.

You Will:

  • share current academic research regarding giftedness and talent, and be challenged to apply it to your own contexts
  • explore the concepts of nature versus nurture, the interaction of biological, psychological and social factors, and the links to mindset
  • be checked and challenged to reflect on the talent systems you work within, and share your experiences with coaches from other sports.
