After the overwhelming interest and success of last year’s inaugural PAADS Athlete Development Research Symposium (ADRS), the 2nd Annual ADRS will be held, August 17, 2018 in Daytona Beach, FL (USA), in conjunction with the Athlete Development Summit.

The Athlete Development Research Symposium will highlight innovative, practical, and timely interdisciplinary research on athlete development. Bridging the academy and professional practice, the ADRS will allow for a robust and enlightening exchange of ideas, strategies, and tools.
