This Junior Sport Science Symposium is aimed at helping Parents & Coaches who guide, coach, train and retain young athletes in organised sports.

In Australia there are many sports which have clear pathways through schools and clubs, which provide coaching, Strength & Conditioning and perhaps nutrition advice.

There are even more sports where the Parents/Athletes have to source their own coaching, employ their own Strength & Conditioning Coach and seek advice on how to progress.

However the are many questions Parents might not know the answer to:

  • When should your child begin a Strength & Conditioning program?
  • What should the program look like?
  • Who should you employ?
  • How do you know if the Coach has the right qualifications?
  • What should you expect in return?
  • What more can you do to help your Child/Young Athlete?
  • If there is a disagreement between Coaches, who should I listen to?

Each of the presenters are considered leaders in ‘physical preparation’ and will help answer the above questions and more.

1st Presenter: Grant Jenkins, PropelPerform

Grant will be discussing answers to common questions like:

  • How much should my child be training?
  • When should kids start resistance training?
  • How important are junior results?

2nd Presenter: David Ballard, Brisbane Broncos 

David is the Athletic Performance Coach for the Bronco’s Elite Player Development. He is tasked with developing the athleticism of young footballers in the Bronco’s system.

Tonight David will be chatting about what you should be looking for in a junior development program and the philosophies that underpin the successful Bronco’s program.

There will be plenty of time for specific questions and answers.
