Wychwood Park Hotel and Conference Centre

IPR Conference – Sports and Coaching: Past and Futures

The Institute of Performance Research present this two day conference, based within three connected strands, Coaching, Sports Development and Sports History.

Organizers welcome submissions from scholars and researchers in any of these disciplines and particularly encourage papers that transcend artificial boundaries, in particular those that take a critical approach to sport and coaching practices. 

Given the variety of contributions anticipated, not only from academics and practitioners in these strands but also from those with an interest in the sociology, politics, and philosophy of sport, it is expected that the conference will include themed multidisciplinary sessions, under topics such as the Olympics, alongside presentation sessions focused within strands. Coaching Ethics, Women in Coaching and Sports Policy and Practice have already been accepted as themed sessions and suggestions for any suitable themed symposia or roundtable discussions should be communicated to the organiser along with abstracts. Postgraduate students are invited to submit abstracts either for presentation or as a poster.

Queries, observations, comments and abstracts of 150-200 words should be forwarded by email as a .doc or .pdf attachment to:-

Dr. Dave Day

Conference abstracts will be made available at and as a hard copy for delegates. Post conference podcasts will also be available.
