Pan Pacific Masters Games Masters Athlete Symposium – Bringing the Science of Sport to Masters Sport

Myself and three colleagues from Bond University, Gold Coast (Associate Professor Mike Climstein), Charles Sturt University (Dr Rylee Dionigi), and the Confederation of Australian Sport (CEO and President Rob Bradley) are jointly hosting the First Pan Pacific Masters Games International Sports Science Symposium on Queensland’s beautiful Gold Coast, a world-class tourist destination.

We aim to bring the science of sport to masters sport. World class researchers in the area of masters sport who are also internationally-recognised presenters and educators will be bridging the gap between the science of masters sport and masters athletes, coaches, medical and allied health professionals, and sport administrators looking to increase membership at club, regional, state and national level.

The two-day symposium is the first symposium we know of that focuses on masters athlete science. While there is plenty of science for younger athletes, this symposium brings the science of masters sport in two streams. A Sport Performance Stream hosted by myself and former PhD student Professor Aaron Coutts, a world leader in team sport performance; and a Sport for All Stream hosted by Dr Rylee Dionigi and Rob Bradley.

Discounts are available for early bird registrations (before 13/10/14) as well as Sports Medicine Australia (SMA) and Exercise and Sports Science Australia (ESSA) members and undergraduate and postgraduate students.

Learn from the best. The program has not only presentations but also panel discussions where presenters from diverse backgrounds will be on stage to engage with symposium participants wanting answers to those questions you always wanted to ask.

It will be a ripper. See you there.
