Event description

Description

Do you or does your club/ organisation run cycling programs, events or training? Have you faced difficult issues around athlete well-being or concerned about the growing trend in prevalence of mental health issues?

As part of the Autumn Cycling Classic @ La Trobe University, we are hosting a mental health and athlete well-being session Friday evening before the event. This is an opportunity to hear from thought leaders who are actively working on these topics in other sporting disciplines. The panel bring diverse perspectives from various sports, as coaches, athletes, psychologists and approaching the full spectrum of issues from emergency situations, transition out of sports, high performance to well-being participation approaches.

Following short presentations, audience members will have the opportunity for Q&A as well as working directly with panel members to action plan how these ideas can be integrated into cycling programs. This is targetted at cycling club committee members, coaches, leaders, and La Trobe faculty/ staff.

Refreshments will be provided during the session, courtesy of event sponsors.

This event is free.
