Abstract: In sports, a new era of high-performance is upon us with the development and integration of novel advanced technologies, innovative athlete training and recovery paradigm, and elucidating physiologic mechanisms. Specialized training methodologies and individualized injury prevention and nutrition strategies, predictive analytics to manage fitness and fatigue, virtual reality for neurocognitive training, and wearable sensors for all types of real-time performance monitoring, science and technology is quietly revolutionizing the games we love. To gain a competitive edge with recruiting, accelerate talent development, manage injury risk, and elevate winning, UofL athletics has initiated a future-focused performance ecosystem through academic, industry, and community partnerships. Our goal is to reestablish Louisville as the ‘Best College Sports Town in America’, and become the Silicon Valley for all things sport by the end of the next decade. To be successful, we need you!

Speaker:  Teena Murray is entering her 13th year as Director of Sports Performance at the University of Louisville, where she has built a model program in collegiate athletics. Teena has also been an adjunct lecturer in the graduate program in Exercise Science at U of L since 2010. Teena brings over 20 years of experience as an educator, researcher, and practitioner, having worked previously at the University of Connecticut and Cornell University. Beyond the collegiate ranks Teena has worked with several pro hockey (NHL) teams, the International Ice Hockey Federation, and from 2006-2010 was the Head Strength & Conditioning Coach for the U.S. Women’s Olympic Hockey Team that won a silver medal in Vancouver. Teena holds a MS- Exercise Physiology from the University of North Carolina at Greensboro, and degrees in Education and Kinesiology from Queen’s University (Canada) and Wilfrid Laurier University (Canada). She also holds a long list of industry certifications.
