This years conference is based around the theme of attention to detail in coaching with the title: 'The Devil is in the detail'. There will be sessions with amongst others Badminton Ireland High Performance Director Tom Reidy and Irish National Coach Dan Magee.
Tom Reidy will be looking at player profiling and how this can be used as a effective coaching tool. Tom is currently using player profiling with Ireland's top players including Scott Evans, Chloe and Sam Magee, as a way to analyse all their skills in detail and see how they can be improved upon.
