Sports Science and Bowling Conference in Singapore

Sports Science and Bowling Conference 2008

Date : Sunday, 1 June 2008
Time : 8am to 5:30pm
Venue : AVA Room, Singapore Sports School

Conference Overview

Today, athletes do not just need talent to do well in sports. They need a well-equipped programme encompassing a customized training programme that is unique for them. The programme is more than building up their fitness and physically capabilities to perform through physical exercise and training. It is about how other supporting disciplines like Sports Science can be applied to enhance their performance.

The Singapore Sports School’s Sports Science Academy will share with participants of the conference on the integrated approach to enhance the performance of Ten-pin bowlers at the youth level. Participants can expect the experts in the sports science industry to deliver a power-packed session that will equip them with the essentials to help them improve the sports performance of bowlers.
