“The 2019 FMPA Conference was, without question, the best conference I have attended in the last 10 years: the organisers should be congratulated on developing such a wide-ranging and engaging programme. Throughout the two-day conference, knowledgeable and experienced speakers presented high quality lectures on topics of current importance: I am certain that everyone attending the Conference learnt something of value from every presentation. The dates for the 2020 FMPA Conference have already been added to my calendar – it is definitely an event I will not want to miss.”
Dr Colin Fuller BSc, PhD, FRSC

“As always, a great few days with FMPA members at their annual Conference. The event really does go from strength to strength every year! Thanks to everyone who helped to organise and shared their knowledge.”
Craig Smith, Head of Fitness & Conditioning, Peterborough United FC

“It was a pleasure to present on our academy philosophy at the recent FMPA conference. An extremely well run couple of days, with some fantastic takeaways!”
Will Abbott, Head Academy Strength and Conditioning Coach, Brighton & Hove Albion FC

“It was great to see such a variety of practitioners, old and young and from different disciplines all congregating to share knowledge and discuss improving athlete health and performance. Improving the links between medical and Strength & Conditioning staff is vital for the holistic development of the athlete and it was great to see a commitment from all to understanding the need for accredited and proven competency in delivering athletic development training to all.”
Kevin Paxton, Head of Academy Sports Science, Leicester City FC

“The FMPA continues to deliver a fantastic line-up of speakers working in vastly different roles across the football landscape. The 2019 conference was a fantastic opportunity to learn, as well as catching up with old friends, and meeting new ones.”
Callum Repper, Women’s Team Physiotherapist, Women’s Professional Development Phase, The FA
