At what age should kids specialise in one sport? Should school sport be compulsory? How do we transfer elite coaching methodology into applicable scenarios for our schools? And how do we traverse the South African sports development context to develop talent?
The third annual Sports Science Institute of South Africa’s (SSISA) Schools’ Sport Summit provides a platform for all stakeholders within the schools’ sports landscape to discuss these and other pressing issues. The line-up boasts industry experts who will provide insight into scientific and practical best practice models. It aims to stimulate debate in an effort to inspire attendees to grow and enhance schools’ sport and promote health in schools via increased physical activity.
The 2017 SSISA Schools’ Sport Summit will take place from 24 to 25 March at Sandringham, Stellenbosch, the venue for the 2017 Cape Argus Sport Show. This affords delegates an opportunity to experience Africa’s biggest sports and lifestyle exhibition as part of the conference package.
If you are an educator, head of sports, a coach, parent, sports coordinator, Phys-Ed teacher or are involved in school sports in any capacity, join the summit as those present learn from knowledgeable presenters as well as from each other.
Featured speakers include Jean de Villiers, Dr Phatho Zondi, who is sports physician and game changer in the field of sport, Paddy Upton and Trevor Smith. For more info contact 021 659 5667, www.ssisa.com or firstname.lastname@example.org.
