Collaborate Sports

What is Collaborate Sports?

Collaborate Sports focuses on providing personal development opportunities to practitioners who want to maximise their effectiveness in their performance environments.

Dan Howells created Collaborate Sports to provide immersive and interactive personal development opportunities for practitioners in to engage in. With over 15 years of experience in elite sports, Dan aims to use his extensive experience to develop the practitioners of tomorrow.

Why was Collaborate Sports created?

Collaborate Sports was created to allow users to experience an interactive type of personal development alongside other practitioners, as opposed to pre-recorded courses or lecture-style learning. Problem-solving in performance settings is an exciting challenge, but the speed at which you can act on potential solutions is often limited by experience in the field being low.

So, by bringing practitioners together to discuss areas of personal development, growth occurs from discussion and sharing of experiences, in a mentorship capacity.

How do Collaborate Sports programmes and events work?

Collaborate Sports is based on interactive group learning.

Each event has the same goal in mind: Utilise as many experiences from fellow practitioners in an interactive group setting to enhance your opportunity for success in performance environments.

What Strength & Conditioning Development Opportunities are available?

Specific to Strength and Conditioning, Dan has created a 6-month group mentorship programme to help practitioners develop a principle-based approach to technical personal development.

With so much valuable information in this area currently available, it’s hard to know what is right and wrong!

Well, it all depends on the context. Context drives content and decision-making,

So, the group mentorship helps guide you through key areas of S&C technical competence by helping you establish your principles, which in turn helps you decide what is the right method or approach for the challenge and problem in front of you.

Everything is focused on collaboration, discussion, and reflection, to make the development real world, and actionable tomorrow!
