October topic — Coaches

Renowned sport psychologist Brian Miller will briefly introduce the science and research behind our current knowledge of team cohesion before giving practical tips and explain why coaches should aim to enhance this aspect of preparation.

Team cohesion can also be important within individual sports and Brian will identify techniques for assisting in this area.
