Central Virginia Sports Performance Seminar
Just a reminder about this. Every spring, for the past few years (I think this is the fourth of these), Jay DeMayo, the S/C coach for the University of Richmond's basketball teams, puts on a seminar at his school that I think is absolutely second to none. If you're a strength coach, sport coach, personal trainer, AT, PT, or even an athlete, the information presented at this seminar will literally make your career. That's how good it is. With the obvious exception of EliteFTS' Learn To Train seminars, you will not find a lineup like this anywhere, and this year's is the best one I've ever seen.
Mike Robertson, Landon Evans, Joel Jamieson, Natalia Verkhoshansky, Val Nasedkin and Cal Dietz will all be presenting in person. This means they'll be lecturing on their chosen topic, but it also means you'll have absolutely unprecedented access to them throughout the day. Between the lectures, hanging out during the day, and going out for drinks at night, the amount of information you'll get at this thing is absolutely ridiculous -- and I challenge you to try and find a better lineup of speakers anywhere in the world. You can't, and won't.
If it's at all possible for you to get to this thing, I couldn't give it a higher endorsement. My thoughts on Joel and Landon are well known, and I consider both to be mentors in coaching (even though I think I'm old enough to be Landon's grandfather), and I'm very much looking forward to seeing Mike Robertson present for the first time. Additionally, Natalia Verkhoshansky is an incredible sport scientist in her own right, and continues to both perpetuate and build on her father's teachings. Finally, if you haven't had the privilege of seeing Cal Dietz speak, you're in for a treat. He's a guy who's been in the Big Ten trenches for years in multiple sports, and his presentations have been absolutely mind-blowing. And Val Nasedkin -- if you don't know who he is, Google him, and you'll know what I mean when I say I'm looking at this as a once in a lifetime experience.
Also, Andy Deck will be there looking like he wants to rip your f-ing head off in his Vibrams.
The seminar kicks off in Richmond on Friday, April 27th, and the bulk of the presentations happen on Saturday. I can't post a link to it here, so simply open a new browser tab (so you don't leave EliteFTS), copy and paste the title of this post, and go to their website for details.
And then come back here and buy a couple of monolifts to make Dave happy.
Best seminar of the year. Ask anyone who's been there,
