Elite Training Seminar Series

The Elite Training Seminar (ETS) Series provides an interactive platform for sharing information and experience among all stakeholders. The aim of the ETS is to facilitate mutual understanding and effective cooperation among support service professionals in elite sport. The ultimate goal is to maximise state-of-the-art, multi-disciplinary support for Hong Kong athletes to achieve excellence in sport.

All stakeholders involved in elite training are welcome to participate in the seminar (e.g. coaches, athletes, sport science and medicine professionals, NSA's, sport administrators, academics and students).

Speaker(s) will be invited to present on a predetermined topic providing a basis for further discussion. The presentations may introduce services provided for elite training, highlights of current problems in a particular field, updates of research findings and possible applications, etc. The presentation will then be followed by discussion among all participants in the seminar. The seminars will be held from 12:30 - 1:30 and light refreshment will be provided to the participants.
