From November 11th-13th, 2022 Sporting Kansas City will host its inaugural ‘High Performance Summit’. At Sporting Kansas City, we believe the essence of the High-Performance in sport is about removing silos, to allow practitioners with different backgrounds and expertise to work collaboratively in creating a holistic framework for developing athletes to reach their highest potential. The purpose of the High-Performance Summit is to bring together members from various roles in the High-Performance structure to share best practices and latest methodologies in planning and periodization, testing and monitoring, performance enhancement, recovery, nutrition, and return to sport.

Sporting Kansas City invites attendees from all levels, including professional, collegiate, high school, private sector, and youth teams to investigate the needs of the elite level soccer player. By bringing in some of the brightest minds in Performance Enhancement, Sport Science, and Rehabilitation, we believe the content will be applicable to individuals working in any sport. By hearing real world examples, the goal is that you will have practical solutions to take away and apply within your own environment.

Additionally, our hope is to provide an open environment where individuals can meet and engage others, and where the sharing of ideas and learning goes beyond the classroom.
