CONFERENCE: Researching Youth Sport

We are pleased to announce initial details of the sixth annual Researching Youth Sport conference and invite individuals who would like to receive full conference information to join our circulation list (see bottom of announcement). Please distribute this to your colleagues and networks who may be interested:
Theme: Researching Youth Sport, Health and Wellbeing: Responding to challenging times
When: Wednesday 16th November 2011, 10.00 – 16.30
Where: Brunel University Campus, Uxbridge, London (at the end of the Metropolitan Line - and only 15 minutes from Heathrow Airport!)
What: The Researching Youth Sport conference series is jointly hosted by the universities of Brunel and Loughborough. The conferences bring together the best applied research into youth sport, in order to make it available to the policymakers and practitioners who can make real use of it. The conference typically attracts 80-100 participants from sports agencies, charities, local and national government departments, community and school representatives and research institutions. As well as offering a stimulating programme of formal presentations, it provides an excellent opportunity for participants to exchange their experiences and good practice with each other.
This year’s conference is being hosted at Brunel by the Brunel Centre for Sport Health and Wellbeing (BC.SHaW) and focuses on how youth sport can thrive in the face of economic uncertainties, funding cutbacks and social tensions. The conference speakers come from sport research, policy and practice, and will be sharing their detailed and up-to-date knowledge in an accessible way.
Delegate fees: £75 full delegate, £45 concession; includes lunch and refreshments throughout the day
Participating: Organisations are welcome to promote their own work and resources at the conference exhibition which will be available to delegates throughout the day. If you want to enquire about this please email us at
