This group is open to both ECSS student and professional members in academic research and sport and professionals working in elite athlete/team training and performance support positions who wish to interact with others internationally in the same field, discuss research frontiers and best practice questions, and pursue collaboration possibilities in a highly international forum. The Elite Sport Performance SIG will be able to submit program proposals for future annual meetings, define and develop seminar topics of interest for parallel SIG seminars during annual ECSS meetings, and interact with each other through ENSS on the ECSS website.
