For those of you who care about elite and professional athletes and sports, plan to attend the PAADS Athlete Development Research Symposium and Summit in Manhattan May 24, 25, & 26. Learn more about the agenda at https://lnkd.in/ebTHtqwj or visit www.athdevsummit.com for more information.
The Athlete Development Summit (ADS) was a concept first created by the NFLPA and hosted by the NFL in 2002. In conjunction with the NBA, it was expanded to include additional leagues and experts in the field of athlete development. Since then, the ADS has evolved into an annual conference, including an associated Research Symposium, attracting many of the leaders in athlete development from major sports organizations around the world.
The ADS provides athlete development specialists with a forum for connecting with representatives of a wide variety of organizations in the profession and sharing best practices and ideas in the field of athlete development. Previous ADS conferences have also included a diverse array of speakers and topics. Among these speakers were David Stern, former Commissioner of the NBA, Dr. Jim Loehr of the Human Performance Institute, Mike Whan, Commissioner of the LPGA, Colonel Mike Hopkins, former D1 athlete and astronaut, and many other high profile speakers from the fields of sport and athlete development.
