The Confederation of Professional Golf’s ever-expanding educational schedule is to break not-to-be-missed new ground in March with the inaugural COACHES CIRCLE. This new event will bring National team coaches together with coaches of elite players and will be followed by the strategically important HEADS OF TRAINING SUMMIT. The events will be run separately but consecutively on Spain’s Costa Daurada.

HEADS OF TRAINING SUMMIT (HoTS) March 15-16 featuring presentations by Education Committee members along with Neil Flanagan, a respected administrator at a string of world renowned resorts and Jane Booth (below), author of the Right Coach, Right Place, Right Time philosophy.
Theory and practical sessions of how to work on players short games will kick start the Coaches Circle, before a thorough discussion around Long Term Athletic Development (LATD) and Talent Identification and Development (TID) will take place. Two heavyweights on the subject Dr Istvan Bayli and Professor Collins, will share their enormous expertise and take questions in what proves to be a lively session which will examine the subject thoroughly. Surely a not to be missed opportunity to learn from the best for anyone dealing with developing young players.
