Australia To Host WSF Coaches Conference

30 May 2011

Working With Elite: Approaches For the Elite Squash Coach is the title of the 10th WSF Squash Coaching Conference which will be held in Canberra from 10-12 August to coincide with the 2011 Australian Open.

The event will take place at the city's renowned Australian Institute of Sport and will feature keynote addresses and presentations from a number of leading international coaches including Geoff Hunt and Liz Irving and the Australian High Performance Group including Head Coach Byron Davis and recently-appointed successful Commonwealth Games coach Anthony Ricketts.

"Australia has an outstanding top level history, with so many past stars - all having benefited from fine coaching," said WSF CEO Andrew Shelley. "Now, some of these greats - Geoff Hunt and Liz Irving amongst others - are very successful international coaches themselves.

"They are coming together for the 10th WSF Squash Coaching Conference in Canberra.

"Inevitably, places will be limited, so it is vital that would-be participants sign up early to ensure taking advantage of the Canberra conference programme."

Squash Australia Chief Executive Gary O'Donnell added: "The WSF Coaches Conference provides a wonderful opportunity for coaches to glean ideas and gain new understandings and we welcome coaches from across the globe.

"I look forward particularly to the sharing and comparing of styles of programs, whether it be one country versus another or coaching males as different to females. All of this is in the context of attending one of the premiere tournaments of the year, the Australian Open, where the world's best players will once again showcase the very best the game has to offer."
