This post is directed to my fellow fitness / sport performance specialists. In particular, it is directed to those that meet the eligibility criteria outlined below.
This morning I received an e-mail message from Mike Robertson of Robertson Training Systems that indicated that he would be giving away two scholarships to attend the 2017 Physical Preparation Summit (http://www.physicalpreparationsummit.com/) in Indianapolis, Indiana on August 4th and 5th. This promises to be a great event with some fantastic presenters including Mike Robertson, Bill Hartman, Lee Taft, and my friend and mentor, Mike Young. Sadly, having recently moved to the Midwest and searching for a new job, I will not be attending. If I were under 25 years of age though you can bet that I would be applying for one of these two scholarships. So good luck to you if you decide to apply! 🙂 The e-mail message with all the details is cut and pasted below:
As you probably know, I’m a big believer in continuing education.
Unfortunately, especially when we’re younger, we may not have the disposable income to attend seminars and events.
So I want to try something new this year, and we’ll see how it works…
I’ve got TWO scholarships I want to offer for this year’s Physical Prep Summit. However, there are some criteria you have to meet to apply:
1. You must be under the age of 25,
2. You must have at least 1 year of experience in the strength and conditioning world (i.e. you have to have some skin in the game), and
3. You must be able to get to the seminar here in Indianapolis on both August 4th and 5th (in other words, don’t register, get the spot, and then not show up!)
If you or someone you know wants to apply, here’s what you have to do:
1. Shoot a short video (3 minutes or less) explaining why you should get one of the two scholarships.
2. Send the video to firstname.lastname@example.org no later than Friday at midnight.
3. Make sure to follow the directions in Steps 1 and 2 🙂
I will review all of the applicants ASAP, and winners will be notified on Monday.
I think this is a really cool opportunity, so if you’re under the age of 25, please take advantage and submit an application.
And even if you’re not qualified, please pass this along to another coach who might be interested. I’m serious about making a difference in the development of our young coaches, and I know this can help!
Thanks for your support and have a great day!
All the best,
P.S. – Many thanks to Hunter Charneski for offering up one of the scholarships. I’ll explain his role in this later…
