The 2024 conference is in the planning stages. To get information and updates about the event, join our mailing list.
June 29-30, 2024
Colorado Springs, CO
Physical therapists, athletic trainers, sports performance/strength coaches, sport scientists, physicians, and related professions/students of those fields who are currently involved or wanting to get involved in working with elite hockey.
Working with elite hockey players (men’s and women’s professional and collegiate levels) is a highly specialized setting for rehab professionals that most continuing education does not adequately address. Many early career professionals wanting to get opportunities working in elite hockey are often presented with the paradox of needing to have experience working in elite hockey in order to get the opportunity to work in elite hockey.
This conference will provide content by a diverse group of professionals currently working with elite hockey programs – from highly specialized consultants to new professionals just starting out in the setting. Not only will the conference cover management of specific injuries, other topics pertinent to the rehab professional such as ethical considerations, interpersonal relationships with players/coaches/other staff, and career development will also be discussed.
The conference will also include a networking event that will give the participants the opportunity to meet and interact with the speakers and staffs from elite hockey programs as well as check out products from vendors that work in the setting. The goal of this event is to help participants and elite hockey staffs make meaningful connections to help foster/support increased diversity in the setting.
- Provide a platform for professionals working in elite hockey to support, share, and enhance their practice
- Expand pathways for getting into working in elite hockey
- Improve/Support diversity among professionals working in elite hockey
Learning Objectives (subject to change):
Upon completion of this conference, participants will be able to:
- Understand case management specific to the elite hockey setting
- Describe common injuries in elite hockey
- Summarize diverse career pathways to working in elite hockey
- Provide objective measures for return to sport decision making in elite hockey
Full schedule coming soon. Both days will be roughly 8am-5pm plus the networking event on Saturday night.
