On Saturday October 3, Coounty Galway Local Sports Partnership in conjunction with Galway City Sports Partnership will host a sports conference entitled Sports Performance – A Practical Guide. The conference will be held in the Radisson Blu Hotel from 10am to 5pm. Speakers include Giles Warrington, sport and exercise physiologist; Frank O’Mara, athlete; Jim Kilty, speed, agility and quickness coach; Richard Donovan, marathon runner; Ger Hartmann, physical therapist; and John O’Mahony, football coach/manager.
The format will be an address from each participant and four workshops. The conference is open to all sporting clubs/organisations, and will costs €25 per person including lunch. This is an ideal opportunity for anyone with an interest in sport to attend and hear some of the most prominent sports personalities in Ireland and to perhaps apply the knowledge gained to their own particular area of sport/recreation.
