The VIS have been presenting a series of seminars across regional and metroplitan Victoria specifically aimed at coaches over the last 12 months. The Mildura Seminar will be held on Tuesday 21 May from 6:30-8:30pm at MADEC Community College (enter on Madden Ave opposite the RSL). The theme will be Coaching and Science and the presenters will be VIS women’s hockey coach, Katie Allen and Sport Scientist Scott Conway.
Katie was appointed to the head coach position of the VIS womenâ€™s Hockey program in 2009, prior to this she represented Australia at World Cups, Champions Trophy, Commonwealth Games and Olympic Games, being part of the Gold medal winning team at the Sydney Olympics before moving onto the coaching side. She has worked with a range of developing athletes having coached at school, club and elite levels. Since becoming head coach Katie has had numerous athletes through the program that have gone on to represent Australia. Katieâ€™s presentation will draw on her experience as both an athlete and a coach.
Scott is a strength and conditioning coach at the Victorian Institute of Sport. He is currently working with triathlon, rowing (U23) and diving. Since the beginning of 2011 he has worked closely with the head of strength & conditioning and sport science, Dr Harry Brennan. In the lead up to London Scott worked with Loudy Wiggins preparing her for the 10m women’s synchro event. Additionally, he was responsible for the strength development of two of the three U23 triathletes who represented Australia at 2012 U23 triathlon World Cup event. Working with two endurance sports and one acrobatic sport highly reliant on strength and power, Scott has a strong knowledge in both areas. His presentation will discuss concurrent training of endurance and strength for the endurance athlete. His presentation will focus on how to program strength and endurance sessions for endurance athletes. He will also give an insight into key areas of how to avoid overtraining and interference between the two different adaptations.
