Why Talent ID - Does it reliably predict a solid athlete?

Finding the right person for any job is no easy task. In the world of elite sport, you sift the best from the good. What makes the ‘right person’ and how do you judge that they have ‘talent’ when you meet them for the first time? A Talent ID Coach can end someone’s hopes and dreams in seconds or give someone the platform to make it onto the world stage. Take a look into the role of a Talent ID Coach and question your own beliefs on who the ‘right person’ is.

How physical development impacts tournament durability in Elite Hockey

International hockey teams are measured by their success at major tournaments and these are often played in challenging environmental conditions. A players’ capacity to recover between matches (that can be played on successive days) is critical. Given that acute recovery interventions will only support this to a certain degree, it is vital that the gap between a player’s on-pitch requirements and their physical capabilities are minimised. This talk explores how the Great Britain Olympic Hockey Teams identify what physical characteristics are necessary for optimising performance, and how we identify the gaps between a players training status and their competition needs.
