Keynote presentation - Getting the best from athletes: A motivational perspective
Motivation is generally a poorly understood construct. Nevertheless, an understanding of motivation is central to the creation of a positive and supportive learning environment. In this presentation Cliff discussed an autonomy-supportive pedagogical approach to teaching and coaching that fosters performance and enjoyment. We were delighted to welcome Cliff to Adelaide to open our Conference.
Darren shared fitness training methods for elite team game athletes. The presentation looked at current practices and what has changed in the last few years, especially in the use of technology. He explored and explained current training methods, outlined how to use and analyse data to improve performance. With expertise in a number of elite programs, including the English Premier League, Socceroos and the AFL, the delegates were given a unique perspective. We thank Darren and the Port Adelaide Football Club for offering delegates an insight into Elite Sport.
