About This Event
Each year since 2018, passionate members of the sport movement skill community come together to lock arms in taking the trek down the deepest rabbit holes of the most pertinent motor control and skill acquisition concepts. This annual event, entitled the Sport Movement Skill Conference, took place in an entirely virtual format for 2021. Because of this, many of the very best movement professionals from all walks of the community, were able to participate in the event – sharing their tremendous energy and expertise on all things related to sport movement behavior.
If you weren’t able to participate in the event when it unfolded on May 20th to May 23rd, 2021, you won’t have to miss it entirely! You’re in luck – NOW is your chance to pick-up each of the presentation videos from this annual ground-breaking event and get stuck-in to the content in a similar fashion that the nearly six dozen attendees did when it unfolded live. This year’s theme, centered around ‘Adaptability,’ offered some varied, but highly thoughtful takes on the importance of enhancing adaptability within movement skill execution for athletes, but also for the practitioner themselves, while tackling topics such as representative co-design, problem-solving, creativity, and everything in between.
