About the NYSI Youth Coaching Conference 2017  

The NYSI Youth Coaching Conference aims to provide a platform for sports coaches, administrators and educators to keep them abreast with the latest developments in youth coaching. It will be particularly pertinent for those dealing with youth athletes to better understand key issues and challenges related to youth sports development. Discussions will centre around issues such as early and late specialisation in sports, growth and maturation of youth athletes, character development through sports, as well as long-term athlete development. The theme for this conference, ‘Redefining Success in Youth Coaching’ broadens the meaning of success in coaching from competition success to developing athletes in a more progressive and holistic manner for long-term performance success.
