BSMPG aims to provide strength coaches, athletic trainers, physical therapists and other health and fitness professionals opportunities and access to leaders in their respective fields through the use of conferences, webinars and online content.
Last year we hosted the First Annual Boston Hockey Summit which brought the likes of Mike Boyle fresh off Boston University Men’s Ice Hockey National Championship, Jim Snider from the University of Wisconsin sporting his Women’s National Championship ring along with other notable Hockey professionals such as Nico Berg from Vancouver, Canada and Darryl Nelson from the USA U-19 team. With an all-star lineup presenting, we were equally as blessed to have just as many notable professionals in the audience. The event was such a success we decided to run the program again, this time bringing in the likes of Matt Nichol (former S&C coach of the Toronto Maple Leafs), legendary 1980 Olympic Gold Medal Strength and Conditioning coach for USA Hockey, Jack Blatherwick along with San Jose Sharks S&C coach, Mike Potenza and a return visit from Coach Boyle.
Like any family, Boston Hockey’s little brother, in this case Basketball, felt neglected so we decided to bring in the brightest basketball strength coaches from around the country in a concurrent lecture setting. Basketball fans have the opportunity to hear an array of former NBA strength coaches now at the college level, along with the mind and muscle behind the University of Pittsburgh Men’s Basketball program, Tim Beltz and National Champion Amanda Kimball from the University of Connecticut Women’s program to name just a few. Whether you choose the Basketball or Hockey track, each group will have the opportunity to hear Recovery guru, Dr. Bill Sands and Corrective Exercise expert Bill Hartman in a general session for all.
Stay tuned for upcoming pictures and video from last year’s event along with updated training information from North America’s brightest minds in sports performance, medicine and rehabilitation.
See you in Boston!
