Date: Wednesday 5 May 2021
Time: 18:00 - 19:00
Registration: Via EventBrite
Speaker: Dr Adele Muscat
In today's sporting world we are seeing far more young athletes experiencing burnout than was previously the case. This may happen due to a combination of factors including: talent, trying to cope with school, sport and other activities, overzealous parents or coaches, as well as personality factors such as perfectionism. During this talk, parents will be encouraged to look out for signs of burnout or overtraining in their child; how such an issue can be tackled will also be discussed.
