Validating Success as an S&C Coach Using AI and Data for Sports Medicine with Tracy Zimmer, Strength and Conditioning Coach, University of Pennsylvania.
The role of a strength and conditioning coach remains ambiguous and undefined. From one university to the next, there are rarely clearly set metrics to measure success. Unfortunately, in fields where the success isn't measured clearly in numbers, minorities are slower to gain ground. It's still an old boys club in a lot of ways and women in the industry struggle to find a way in. As long as there aren't agreed upon ways to measure a S&C coach, women will be tokens in the industry.
Tracy will discuss how she holds herself accountable with metrics to prove her value and get a seat at the table.
