Welcome to the SPKN Sport Knowledge Center, which is operated by SPKN - The Sport Professional Knowledge Network, a nonprofit organization whose mission is to provide the evidence-based knowledge and tools necessary to develop today’s athletes – mentally, physically, and emotionally.
We at SPKN believe that by bringing academics, coaches, athletes, and other sport professionals together in conversation, we can bridge the divide between academic research and practice to improve the entire landscape of sport. We’re committed to integrity and informed values-driven standards and we’re glad you’re here. Together, we’ll drive a better world of sport.
WELCOME TO THE CONVERSATION.
