Excitement is building for this weekend's Queensland Coaches Network Forum with some of the country's best sporting minds ready to share their knowledge and wisdom.
More than 18 different industry-leading coaches and high performance staff will be part of the two-day networking event which will be held at Novotel Twin Waters; and in an added boost, a selection of different presentations will be available virtually via Zoom for those who can't make it to the Sunshine Coast.
The chance to attend in-person should not be overlooked, with the opportunity to rub shoulders and network with not only the raft of high-profile sporting talent, but other community and statewide competitions coaches from across Queensland.
Face-to-face attendance will give attendees an exclusive insight into how some of the game's best tacticians analyse and review on-field performance with a live game review.
Queensland Rugby League senior pathways and performance manager Brett Jones was looking forward to this weekend's forum, with it being a great chance to hear from some of Australia's greatest sporting minds and connect with fellow coaches across the state.
“We're really pleased to have such experienced presenters sharing their knowledge with the coaches," Jones said.
"It is a great sign for the game that we have so many coaches looking to learn and develop.
"In addition to the presentations, the forum will be a great chance to connect with other coaches and build relationships across the game.”
Registrations are still open to attend either virtually or in-person.
