Alongside moderator and performance expert Francesco Cuzzolin, former Slovenian national team player will be talking about transition of elite basketball players to top-level coaches, also by haring his own experience.

“I am glad to share my experience at the EPIC, both as a coach and also as a former player. The congress itself is a great initiative by ELPA, which will bring together performance professionals from different fields and I am sure it will be beneficial for all who work, or want to work with athletes in a professional sports setting”, said Jaka Lakovic. 

This conversation will be followed by sports psychology expert Mar Rovira and her guest, prof. Isabel Balaguer, who will be talking about motivational climate in high-level performance.

In our session we will talk about the methods which coaches should learn in order to achieve the best possible motivational climate, which will then help them in coaching high performance teams”, explained Mar Rovira.
