AUT Millennium is proud to announce Dr Craig Harrison, internationally recognised expert in youth athlete development and host of the popular podcast “The Athlete Development Show", is presenting his talk to our community.
About Craig's talk:
Right now, more kids are dropping out of sport by their 13th birthday than ever before! For the athletes who remain, the youth sport culture is putting their mental and physical health at great risk and limiting their potential. Drawing from the latest research and more than 10 years of experience coaching kids, Craig explains where we’re going wrong, with practical tips to help your child be happy, healthy and achieve more in the sports that they love!
A thought-provoking and entertaining evening with Craig, this event is a ‘must see’ for parents/caregivers with kids who love their sport and for coaches working with youth athletes.
Craig works with sports parents, coaches and organisations to develop more creative, confident and resilient young athletes. He holds a PhD in athlete development and supervises a number of postgraduate students at AUT University. Craig is the husband of International Netball and Beach Volleyball player Anna Harrison and dad to Isaac, Georgia and Benjamin.
What people are saying about Craig's talk:
"We were fortunate to host Craig for two days at New Plymouth Boys' High School. During the evening he presented to over 100 parents in our community and it was exceptionally well-received by all. Craig comes with extensive knowledge and experience in the Youth Sport and Athlete Development space and provided a powerful, insightful and thought-provoking seminar to our parent community. We will certainly be getting him back early next year." - Matt Cleaver, Assistant Headmaster
