           (certified exercise physiologist); MSc Kinesiology (sport medicine).

DESCRIPTION: Building Better Athletes: Safe and Effective Sport Performance Training. This session will
            walk coaches through the building of a great athlete from the inside out. You will learn
            how some of the most common exercises used today (like abdominal crunches) actually
            put an athlete at risk of disc herniations and decrease their performance. You will see
            how training for stability, strength, stamina and speed is a very straight forward process
            when you have the right blueprint. Build faster, stronger, more durable athletes (even
            reduce the risk of ACL tears) using affordable equipment that you probably already have
            at your school. This is a practical session not aimed at just making you tired, but rather
            geared toward teaching and applying the science of training - come prepared to
            participate.
