Back to university

I have been a bit slow on the blog side this week. It has been a busy week though as I have gone back to university. This time together with all the players, coaches and officials working in the EGU Coaching programme. We are at Loughborough University which holds some pretty impressive sports facility. We are here for the traditional Christmas Camp and this time all our squads are on site together. Some fabulous speakers have sheared their experiences and told some inside stories about their lives and how they go about being as good as they are. The first day Dave Alred, one of the coaches behind England winning the Rugby World Cup in 2005, shared some of his philosophies around how to perform under pressure. Today Katherine Grainger inspired us all with her story about preparing for, competing in and recovering from the Beijing Olympics. Oliver Fisher and Dean Robertson spoke about their experiences of growing up in golf and going on tour. There has been some amazing stories told by these people and I look forward to seeing what impact this will have on the people attending.

Apart from running the camp I have also managed to produce a new Monthly Letter. Have a look at the Monthly section to find out!
