As previously communicated WASC have been invited by Cockermouth SC who have secured a visit from Wayne Goldsmith who is performing a tour of UK and Ireland, the theme is;
“THE SPORTS EXPERIENCE – MAKING SPORT BETTER”…..and will focus on helping coaches, organisations and parents to make the experience of sport more engaging and enjoyable for athletes of all ages and at all stages of development.
The weekends are all about Swimming – and he’ll be running swim camps across the four Nations. His swim camps are very much MIND and BODY focused – with pool sessions unashamedly centred on teaching swimmers and coaches how to better connect their minds to their muscles during training and competition.
It will be challenging. It will be thought provoking. It will be entertaining, and he promises you that you’ll have a great time learning.
Wayne is one of the most respected and authoritative sporting and business coaching minds in Australia. His list of high performance and high-profile sporting clients includes Tennis Australia, Racing Victoria, Swimming Australia, Triathlon Australia, Diving Australia, the Australian Rugby League, the Australian Rugby Union and the Australian Sports Commission.
