    by Gary Schofield, Jr., ATC/L, CSCS,*D
    Dynamic Warm Up Movement Screen 
    by Mike Bewley, MA, CSCS, C-SPN, USAW
    During this discussion, Coach Bewley will discuss how to incorporate movement screening into a warm up session and how to evaluate movement efficiency on a daily basis. Movement Corrective Exercises will be reviewed with special attention to mobility and stability issues.
    This topic will focus on Ground-based Rotational Power Development using the Renegade. The purpose is to educate strength and conditioning coaches about integrating explosive, multi-joint rotational movements into their existing S&C program domination mostly by Olympic lifts. This approach will ensure multi-planar movement balance and a higher level of athletic performance.

    Movement Screening for the High School & Collegiate Athlete
    by Gary Schofield, Jr. ATC/L, CSCS,*D and Mike Martino, PhD, CSCS, CBRC, CES
    Sports Performance Series (Room BC)
    The presenters will share research data that has been collected at Georgia College over the past 4 years revealing some of the dysfunctional asymmetries that exist in specific sports teams. These results will help to guide strength and conditioning specialists, sports coaches, and personal trainers in designing and implementing more effective movement corrective strategies within their warm-up routines, mobility sessions, and conditioning programs. Specific attention will be shown as how to implement with large groups and teams. 
    Sports Rehabilitation Series (Room A)
    During this interactive presentation participants will learn:
    •The latest trends and research for designing programs that get results
    •The key mobility and stability exercises that best address lower body performance
    •The mental quality that every athlete must have in order to successfully return to play
    •Specific coaching cues and feedback strategies to use with your athletes
    •A simple field test for screening athletes used to take the guesswork out of program design
    •Why you must be intentional about designing training environments plus more!

    Sports Performance Series (Room BC)
    Speed development is one of the most important aspects of human performance. However, if speed is developed independent of the decision making aspects of sport then transfer is threatened. This presentation and practical will discuss the evolution of reactive agility and how to develop speed that transfers to sport. A practical review of the the literature in addition to a systematic approach to developing testing and training around reactive agility is presented. Anyone who works with athletes or wants to present a diverse challenge to their clients will benefit from this fresh look at agility training. 
    Overcoming the Myth of Proprioceptive Training
    by Guido Van Ryssegem, MS, ATC/R, CSCS, NBFE, RN
    Sports Rehabilitation Series (Room A)
    Although it is often assumed by the exercise and health experts that balance exercises and interventions improve proprioception, very little proof confirms that and that proprioceptive training may actually be a myth. The presenter will review the hard facts on what balance and proprioception really are. Also, the presenter will argue and propose why balance training should be performed differently per population (sedentary, fit vs. athlete) so we can learn, relearn or optimize balance control at the cognitive level and thereby optimally restore or enhance postural control. This will take wobble board and other unstable surface training to the next level. 
    Lunch will be provided onsite. Attendees will be available to network and visit sponsor tables and vendor booths. 
    Combination Sports Performance & Sports Medicine Sessions (Room ABC)

    In the last couple of decades, technology advances have opened new horizons for the scientific study of motor control, motor learning and their relationship to rehabilitation, movement and performance. The presenters will discuss why and how some of the motor control and motor learning principals can be applied to your populations. Their evidence-based approach will take your coaching knowledge and skills to the next level. 
    Combination Sports Performance & Sports Medicine Sessions (Room ABC)
