Dr Craig Harrison (Athlete Development Project): Get some variability!

Dr Craig Harrison loves to show young people how to tap into their inner drive, take control of their learning & pursue their dreams with purpose & passion. An expert in youth athlete development, Craig specialises in the physical and mental sides of sport. He is a coach, a researcher, host of the popular podcast The Athlete Development Show, the husband of former Silver Fern and FIVB international beach volleyball player Anna Harrison & father of 3. With a unique ability to communicate complex ideas in a simple way that inspires action, Craig supports youth athletes and their parents to unlock personal performance & fulfil sporting potential. 

In this episode Craig discusses: 

  • The importance of starting with a foundation of relationships. 

  • The transferability of what we do into the context that drives the athlete. 

  • What his motivation was to move from "High Performance" to the developmental level. 

  • His new initiatives: The Athlete Development Project and the Athlete Environment. 

  • Operating on the edge of Chaos. The importance of creating adaptability and variability in our athlete. 

  • Creating a bigger movement library to help build the ability to solve new problems. Who's asking the athlete what they want?
