Meeting of Top Youth Fitness Professionals Wraps Up in Canton, CT
Date:6/24/2012

Elizabethtown, KY (PRWEB) June 24, 2012

This past Friday and Saturday, leaders in the field of youth fitness appeared at Tyler English Fitness in Canton, CT for an event hosted by the International Youth Fitness Association. The event marked the first ever IYCA East Coast Conference.

The IYCA focuses its efforts on improving coaches in the fields of youth fitness, youth conditioning, and youth athletic development. The organization unites youth fitness professionals to set forth guidelines for best practices in long-term young athlete development.

This first ever IYCA East Coast Conference brought together 9 of the leading experts in the field of youth fitness to work with and teach all levels of coaches and trainers.

“The IYCA is dedicated, first and foremost, to improving the way youth sports coaches develop young athletes,” said IYCA CEO Pat Rigsby. “While coaches can buy books and videos, nothing beats hands on experience with renowned experts.”

This year’s lineup included 9 youth fitness specialists who have experience training NCAA Champions, Olympians, and professionals. Such coaches include speed expert Latif Thomas and David Jack, two former elite NCAA athletes with thriving youth coaching businesses.

Other presenters included resistance band training expert Dave Schmitz, kettlebell training expert Pamela MacElree, youth and professional coach Jim Kielbaso, east coast gym owner Dave Gleason, owner of Cressey Performance Eric Cressey, and the IYCA’s own Pat Rigsby.

While all the youth fitness specialists covered unique aspects of training young athletes, one notable speaker stood out for bridging the gap between mind and body.

Connecticut local Melissa Lambert, a licensed professional counselor and the IYCA’s coach of the year, gave a lecture and hands on coaching session on the psychology of game play and movement in kids.

“Kids fitness isn’t just about winning games,” said Rigsby. “The IYCA is about young athlete development for the long term. This includes using youth sports training for their overall well-being.”

After many successful live events in the past, this was the IYCAs first major event on the East Coast. “We have hosted a major event of this kind annually in Louisville for the past 4 years, and now we’re trying to bring our world class trainers’ expertise out East.”

The first ever IYCA East Coast Conference was open to coaches and trainers of all levels of youth athletics. In fact, many attendees came to the event with little knowledge of youth sports training.

Given the in-depth nature of the event, it is unlikely that those same trainers left without having first accumulated a great deal of knowledge about the most up to date methods for training young athletes.

The IYCA East Coast Conference took place on June 22nd and June 23rd.

About Pat Rigsby: Pat Rigsby is the co-owner of Fitness Consulting Group, a leading business development consulting firm within the fitness industry.

The IYCA is part of the Fitness Consulting Group family of companies. It is the world’s leading authority in the fields of youth fitness, youth conditioning, and youth athletic development.
