Why attend?

Learn about best practices in sport from researchers from across the country. Hear their latest discoveries and gather cutting-edge insights that will enhance sport. Let the evidence guide you in improving your programs.

These interactive sessions are a great chance to make new connections in the field and expand your network.

How is it going to work?

This year’s poster session will be on Zoom meeting. Held during session 3 of SCRI from 11:30 a.m. to 12:30 p.m., on Friday, October 30th, 2020

In Zoom break-out rooms, you will hear from savvy researchers on the latest knowledge they have uncovered. Be able to participate in two exciting themed rooms to discover best practices in that area. In each room you will have 30 minutes to learn and engage with presenters, followed by an open Q&A. 

Turn your video on during this interactive session to meet new people in the field and create connections!
