“At the end of the day, coaching is what is important.”
In July of 2016 we welcomed Randy Ballard to The Seminar to become our first athletic trainer to present on the Sports Med side of the training spectrum, and he did not let us down. This presentation is a breakdown of the challenges that we see in education, collaboration, and communication between sport coaches, strength coaches, and athletic trainers. Randy breaks down the challenges facing each, and how we can be better for the people that really matter, the student athletes we get the opportunity to work with. Throughout this talk Randy asks many questions of, not just our attendees but all three professions, to hopefully drive better discussion between those three points of the triangle in your personal situation. These should provide an absolutely stellar self-evaluation tool for any staff in the country. Randy closes out discussing some potential solutions and things they’re working to implement at Illinois to help improve the overall care for their student athletes along with over 25 minutes of question and answers from those in attendance.
We have had many presentations here at The Seminar, and this (in my opinion) is a top 5 of all time, and is one that I recommend to people all the time. It’s easy to look for methods and means to add to your program or ways to evaluate your training, but understanding the collaborative approach that’s needed for the 21stcentury athlete and the self-reflection that the questions Randy asks makes this a must have for coaches, strength coaches, and sports med professionals looking to continue to move forward and be better for the student athletes you get the opportunity to work with.
