Athletic Lab’s Dr. Mike Young recently lectured at the Child to Champion UK virtual conference. The conference was hosted by Proformance Strength & Conditioning. The international conference has taken place in the UK for several years. Proformance was slated to hold an event in the US for the first time in mid March at Athletic Lab. Unfortunately, the COVID-19 mandated closure cancelled the on-site plans and the conference was rescheduled as a virtual conference. The UK event was similarly converted to a virtual event in response to COVID-19.
Young delivered on “Physical Preparation for Women’s Soccer” at the 2 day event where he discussed his work as the Performance Director of the North Carolina Courage. The conference featured speakers from 5 different countries including Dan Baker, Nicole Rodriguez, Luis Mesquita, Luke Jenkinson and Kevin Til.
