The Developing Athlete –
The Path to Health, Happiness and Higher Performance

“Youth sport is more competitive and demanding than ever before. The expectation to do and achieve more is leaving kids stressed, broken and burnt out and it’s a trend we need to stand up and take notice of. Important needs in physical and psychological growth must be accounted for if we want to maximise the value sport offers. Drawing from the latest science and over 20 years of experience, Craig shines a light on this fascinating topic including practical tips to raise happy, healthy and high-performing youth athletes.”

What people say about Craig’s talk?

“We were fortunate to host Craig for two days at New Plymouth Boys’ High School. During the evening he presented to over 100 parents in our community and it was exceptionally well-received by all. Craig comes with extensive knowledge and experience in the Youth Sport and Athlete Development space and provided a powerful, insightful and thought-provoking seminar to our parent community. We will certainly be getting him back early next year.” – Matt Cleaver, Assistant Headmaster, New Plymouth Boys High School
