AASP's 35th Annual Conference to be Delivered Virtually October 21-24, 2020

After careful deliberation, AASP’s Executive Board and Conference Planning Committee have jointly decided that our 35th Annual Conference will be held virtually rather than in person in Orlando this October. With the safety of our members and attendees in mind, AASP believes that holding a large, in-person gathering intended to draw participation from around the world would be irresponsible, imprudent and impractical as we all do our part to stop the spread of COVID-19.  We are disappointed that we will not be able to gather, but we are confident our decision is in the best interest of our membership and broader professional community.

AASP’s Conference Planning Committee has put together an exciting program over the original October 21 – 24 dates. Keynote sessions include: 

  • General Robert Brown, who served as commander of the US Army Pacific
  • Brandon Marshall, former NFL All Pro and current co-host of Inside the NFL
  • Kara Goucher, Olympic marathoner and World Championship medalist
  • Jack J. Lesyk, former AASP President and the 2020 Coleman Griffith Lecturer
  • Athlete Transistions as a Result of the Pandemic panel featuring Peter Haberl, USOC, USA; Lani Lawrence, New York Football Giants, USA; Natalia Stambulova, Halmstad University, Sweden; and Carmen Tebbe Priebe, University of Iowa & Private Practice

The Virtual Conference will consist of both live and on demand sessions, as well as an e-poster gallery. Conference sessions will be available online for registrants to view at their convenience until April 30, 2021. All previously-announced accepted presenters will have an opportunity to share their work and will receive more information in the coming weeks.

Live Sessions will take place Wednesday, October 21 - Saturday, October 24 from 12:00 pm - 3:00 pm Eastern.
