We’re very excited to announce that our Youth Skiing Symposium will be held at Holdnerness School in Holderness, NH on Sunday, October 28!
This is a one day workshop aimed at Bill Koch League club leaders, coaches, and parent volunteers. The schdule will consist of morning speakers, afternoon team building exercises, and brunch in Holderness School’s dining hall. We are very happy to be working with Dr. Cheryl Coker, an expert on the subject of long term athlete development, who will be our keynote speaker for the day.
Dr. Coker teaches in the Doctor of Physical Therapy Program and the Department of Health and Human Performance at Plymouth State University. She is an expert in motor skill acquisition who draws from her experiences as an elite athlete and coach to assist practitioners in putting theory into practice to optimize their athletes’ skill development and performance. She has given over 100 presentations throughout the US and internationally, and is the author of Motor Learning and Control for Practitioners, a widely used text that lays a theoretical foundation for assessing performance; providing effective instruction; and designing practice and training experiences that promote skill acquisition.
We’re also excited to be collaborating with the Adventure Education department at Plymouth State University who will be hosting our group at their indoor challenge course in the afternoon for a series of team building exercises and games.
