The expert bringing you this masterclass is Andy Longley 🇳🇿, co-founder at coachup.

With a background in the military, Andy has been working as a performance psychologist since 2006 with the New Zealand Navy where he supported and coached members of the special forces. He also worked in the airline industry and of course in sports. He has spent many years working in sport performance & coaching in Europe where he was the senior global director for talent & leadership development for adidas. It was there where Andy focused his work on psychology & applied neuroscience, believing that from understanding how our mind and brains work, sports coaches can take their coaching to the next level.

Andy started off his sporting career as an elite rugby player where he’s played at the highest level across five countries before moving into rugby coaching. He continues to work as a performance coach and expert with professional rugby teams and head coaches alike.

We know it is the coach who makes the team-work, work! The founders of coachup noticed the majority of traditional sports coaching development focuses on skills, drills and tactics. But this neglects the most important element of high performance… the team environment. With their backgrounds in psychology, neuroscience and in elite sport from Olympians to the Premier League football they set themselves a challenge. They dedicated themselves to find a way to make the science of team performance available to sports coaches, no matter what the sport, no matter what the country, in a really practical way.

In our live & interactive masterclass, Andy sheds some light in 1 topic of how to start bringing applied neuroscience into your coaching. Following the masterclass we launched a more in-depth premium course for those among you who want to master the skills and apply these in your day-to-day coaching activities.
