Since 2007, Think Fitness have been delivering an end of season Performance Conference for people working in the professional football industry. Focused upon empowering sports scientists and conditioners working in clubs, these Conferences grew from strength to strength resulting in the annual Science + Football Conference.
Subsequently, in 2011 we developed a series of workshops that focus upon key components of sports science and performance in elite sport. The first of these was delivered by our consultant nutritionists Mike Naylor and Mayur Ranchordas and was titled 'The Role of Performance Nutrition in Professional Football'.
In November 2011, Think Fitness hosted a performance analysis workshop with 60 delegates treated to presentations from Dr Paul Balsom (Swedish FA), Dr Ian Graham (Decision Technology) and Jamie Smith (Everton FC). The three presentations demonstrated the diversity of performance analysis ranging from coaching, through to player recuiitment and analytics.
Our most recent workshop titled 'Sports Psychology for Football' took place on Wednesday 21st November 2012. Focused upon the emerging area of sports psychology, Tom Bates (WBA FC), Dan Abrahams (Football Psychology Consultant) and Tony Faulkner (Manchester City FC) delivered presentations on the delivery of psychology within a professional football club.
We will be anouncing the date of the next scheduled workshop once the 2013-14 season is underway.
