Fantastic Podcast - Great to have a podcast who gets the experts in their fields providing practical information and tips that you don’t need to be a health professional to understand & that you can apply immediately with young athletes! Can’t wait for the next instalment!!

Fantastic resource

This is a wonderful resource for anyone involved in junior sport and in particular where there is a high physical load. I have coached junior teams in basketball, AFL football and rowing. I also have 2 teenage kids that have played multiple sports at a high level. I have found, throughout my journey that many coaches and parents lack the understanding and knowledge to know what is best for their athletes. This podcast has such a wide range of guests that offer both physical and mental wisdom and guidance. Brilliant!!
