 Coaching the female athlete  - A GoTo Recap -- Hosted by Vicki Harber and Aaron Lavorato

This workshop talked about building a positive performance environment for female athletes. Female athletes experience unique “injuries” that can interrupt or halt her performance journey. The “injuries” were categorized as mechanical, energetic and “heart”. These “injuries” are largely preventable IF we ensure our programs do the following: a) build a place of acceptance for all participants, b) provide quality skill acquisition across all aspects of athlete development and c) regularly include appropriate role models. This GoTo Recap aims to support coaches by revisiting these ideas and asking you “how is this going for you?”
