    Session Descriptions
    Research within the realm of coaching science has described pedagogical events as "dynamic, power-influenced interactions, where outcomes can never be totally anticipated as planned, but rather constantly negotiated." For today's coach to be the most effective they must learn how to operate on the edge of chaos, by being able to strategically observe, navigate and influence the social interactions, individual agendas and environments that are an inherent part of the coaching domain. This lecture will explore the roles of archetypes, influence tactics and relevant research encompassing human conflict and it's impact on performance. It will also provide the coach with a framework of research backed strategies aimed at improving both task and relation oriented outcomes.
    Coach Sahli will share information about what is happening with youth today throughout the United States and take an in-depth look at how things have changed in the past number of years with youth in sport.  Specialization is happening due to marketing and other pressures on parents and young athletes.  Is it good?  Is it bad?  What does the research say and how successful are these athletes that have specialized early?
    Learning objectives: genetics and epigenetic; DNA; RNA; mRNA; the ribisome; Amino acids; Proteins; The allele; Mutual influences of exercise and genetics; changes to life style according to SNPs.

    Learning Objectives:

    - Increase awareness of common nutrition problem areas for active individuals

    - Increase understanding and awareness of the use of dietary supplements

    Learning Objectives: Definition of movement preparation; History of stretching/ traditional warm-ups; How movement preparation works; Benefits to movement preparation; Creating a movement preparation regimen; Examples
    The objectives of the talk are to teach proper agility mechanics and progressions that can be implemented in a team setting.
    Learning Objectives: 1. Develop hip stability, 2. Teach hip strategy, 3. Coach landing skills, 4. Single-leg strength development, 5. Coaching deceleration & cutting, 6. Change of direction conditioning, and 7. Q & A.
    Movement skill erudition is the bedrock of physical competency. So often, athletes and general public skip past the basic tenets of movement (rhythm, timing, coordination, proprioception etc) and jump right into the most complex speed progressions, agility drills or plyometric routines. This 60 minute session will show how the vast majority of movement qualities that underpin complex skill can be addressed in the warm-up and refined through smart progressions and planning.
