Dr. Laura Finnegan February Speaker Series
In case you missed it! Dr. Laura Finnegan joined our coaches and parents in February to discuss the impact of female growth and maturation on personal, psychosocial, emotional, and physical development and aims to provide insights into how coaches and parents can apply that knowledge to enhance the developmental experience of the youth athlete.
Dr. Laura Finnegan founded the Football Research Group in 2020 which brings together a variety of international academics and practitioners engaged in football research. She completed a Ph.D. in talent development in youth football in 2020. She is currently working on a number of football research projects, including a UEFA-funded investigation into club environments across 7 European countries. She has also presented on several coaching courses including the UEFA Pro license and the US Soccer Talent Scout License.
