We're excited to present the first event in the Parent Information Tour! The first in this series of talks will be presented by Sharleen Hoar who will give a talk on how you as a parent can best support your athlete through their swimming journey.

Sharleen has a PH.D in Sport and Exercise Psychology from the University of British Columbia and is the Mental Performance Lead at the Canadian Sport Institute Pacific. Over the past six years she has been intimately involved with high performance sport through her work with national teams of cross country skiing, mountain biking (cross-country), rugby, swimming, triathlon and paratriathlon. She attended the 2014 Commonwealth Games and the 2015 Pan American Games, and supported athletes and coaches through three Olympic games including the 2010 and 2014 Winter Olympic Games in Vancouver (Canada) and Sochi (Russia), respectively, and 2016 Summer Olympic Games in Rio de Janeiro (Brazil).

Sharleen is an adjunct professor with the University of Lethbridge. She actively publishes her research on self-regulation and emotion management as well as sport talent development. Sharleen’s commitment to practical and scientific understanding of the psychological foundations of performance excellence affords a cutting edge approach towards training athletes, coaches, and sport performance staff to achieve personal and performance excellence (Canadian Sport Institute Pacific, 2017).
