We were delighted to welcome Hollie Webb to speak to the ESPP students. She covered many relevant areas; tournament preparation, overcoming failure, fulfilling aspiration, target setting to list a few and also brought her gold medal for the students to see.
Workshops and visiting speakers are a major feature of our Elite Sports Performer Programme. They are intended to provide our student with the opportunity to look in greater detail into a range of factors that will influence their sports performance both in the present and as they look to the future.
OE Darren Britten is in the final stages of completing his PHd in Sports Psychology from the University of Bournemouth.
He has run a workshop for our ESPP students and is scheduled to return with more finding from his research thesis on managing anxiety in sport.
The ESPP students were treated to a presentation on Sports Nutrition by Dr Ali Hill from Southampton Solent University.
This seminar was well attended and gave our students a great insight into the world of sports nutrition and how best to maximise performance with a healthy, balanced diet. (pictures to follow)
Ellie Steele (OE) came in today to talk to our Elite Sports Performers about her journey from KES student to a GB Power Lifter.
