Chris Neve, Director of Canada Strong Climbing, Youth Development Coordinator for Climbing Escalade Canada (CEC) and Coach for Canada’s Youth National Climbing Team, has invited me (Taylor Reed) to moderate a discussion of climbing research to coaches in August. Below is the official poster for the conference.
I’ll be joining Chris as well as presenters Steve Bechtel (Strength & Conditioning), Dr. Jared Vagy (Injury Prevention), and Kelly Drager (Nutrition and Integrated Support Team). I’m excited for this opportunity, and hope you can come out and join us.
It looks like Chris will be doing something different this year, with the presentations having significantly more time for targeted discussion. I think this will be a fantastic opportunity to not only learn but push our understanding of the sport forward, and I look forward to taking what I learn back to the research community. I hope I get the opportunity to see you there! Here’s the website.
