The Sport Coaching Summit 2018 to be held in Stellenbosch follows on a very successful summit in 2017. Hosted by the University of Stellenbosch, the summit is aimed at sport coaches at all levels. The focus of this year’s summit is to start understanding athlete and team development, nutrition and management. We also look at the various technological tools and programs that are available to coaches today to assist them in getting the maximum potential from their athletes.

Over two days coaches will hear from some of the top experts in their field, discussing a wide range of topics and having an opportunity to talk to the presenters in open discussion workshops to get a clearer understanding of the potential options that are out there for coaches. Both team and individual coaches will find tremendous benefit from this course.

Who can participate?

  • School coaches
  • Amateur sport coaches
  • Team sport coaches
  • Individual sport coaches
  • Strength & Conditioning Coaches
