Winning Edge Seminar: Athletic Development
Oct. 19  ·  5 p.m.
Room S159

The reality of high performance training is that Olympic and Professional athletes spend a majority of their training working on the basics and performing them extremely well. Jeff Osadec of the Canadian Sport Institute will explain how that knowledge can be transferred to the concepts that are used to develop younger athletes. Everyone is welcome to attend this free seminar.
