Tauranga Intermediate School is proud to announce Dr Craig Harrison, internationally recognised expert in athlete development and host of the popular podcast “The Athlete Development Show", is presenting his talk "The Developing Athlete" to our community.
About Craig's talk:
Right now, more kids are dropping out of sport by their 11th birthday than ever before. For the athletes who remain, the youth sport culture is putting their mental and physical health at risk and limiting their potential. Drawing from the latest research and more than 10 years of experience coaching kids, Craig explains how to help your kids succeed in the hyper-competitive world of youth sport without losing motivation or burning out.
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 young 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 of Isaac, Georgia and Benjamin.
What people are saying about Craig's talk:
"From his own personal experience to well-grounded research, Craig's presentation was insightful and thought-provoking. His relaxed presentation style and ability to get his message across were very relatable and well-received by his audience. I would highly recommend Craig to any parents or coaches whose children are, or will be getting involved in sport." - Gary Pasfield, Principal, Waimauku School
