Evolution of the Athlete Conference

The Evolution of the Athlete Conference offers delegates the opportunity to spend a week with some of the world’s most talented and successful coaches. Whether from sporting fame, academia, or business - conference speakers will be focused on sharing with the delegates their knowledge, experiences and philosophy on coaching and how they establish their coaching principles.

With many coaching conferences focussed on technical skill development, the Evolution of the Athlete Conference program aims to develop the soft skills of coaching. Skills such as:

  • developing a coaching philosophy
  • sustaining success in today's competitive sporting landscape
  • understanding and applying sports psychology
  • leadership practises for coaches
  • drivers of sport management success
  • latest trends in sports science


The Evolution of the Athlete Conference is non-sport specific so the presentations are ideal for anyone keen to learn how to become a better coach and drive success with their athletes and teams - pro or amateur.

Delegates can expect to receive:

  • first hand experiences from some of the world’s most successful coaches, athletes, support staff and administrators
  • the latest strategies and techniques for managing athletes and teams
  • current best practice in the industry
  • access to a broad range of coaching and industry professionals
