Conference Highlights

Keynote - Coaching for Youth Development

Jean Côté

When programs focus on a sole objective, it limits their potential contribution to overall youth development. Furthermore, specific youth sport programs that focus on one of the Ps will often use specifically trained personnel and intervention programs that can be costly and potentially difficult to sustain. Instead of focusing on one outcome, this presentation will present a global vision for youth sport through a new framework that incorporates the mechanisms necessary for a developmentally sound approach to youth sport involvement.
