Great coaches are the reason that athletes and sports players become champions.
That’s why we have launched a new programme to share our knowledge with sports coaches through a series of monthly webinars.
Collectively, the DIS team has decades of experience of working with word-class athletes and professional sports stars.
Our MD, Chloe Maudsley, said: “We want to share our knowledge with the coaching community so that they feel supported in their work to develop young athletes to achieve their dreams.”
Webinars will take place at 8pm on the third Wednesday evening of each month. It will cost just £10 per session on a pay-as-you-go basis with no commitment or membership fee required.
The first webinar takes place on February 17th and will be led by clinical dietitian and sports and exercise nutritionist Nicky Gilbert. For many years, Nicky supported players at Nottingham Forest Football Club and has also worked extensively with high-performance athletes and coaches in a wide variety of other Olympic and non-Olympic sports. The title of her webinar will be ‘Essential facts about nutrition for developing athletes’.
Chloe added: “Through this programme, coaches will be connected with other coaches and have the opportunity to learn and discuss key topic areas. They will also have the chance to get to know the team at DIS – including former Commonwealth Games athlete Laura Wake, performance psychologist Dr Phil Clarke and physiotherapist David Sprot.”
There will also be a chance to apply to join an exclusive Champion Coaches Forum which will be led by Andy Wood, co-founder of DIS. Andy led national badminton teams through five Olympic cycles – three for Great Britain, one for Bulgaria and one for Australia. This exciting new forum is due to be launched this summer.
