ag·o·ra

ˈaɡərə/
noun
1. (in ancient Greece) a public open space used for assemblies and markets.

Amongst their many contributions to modern society, Ancient Greece founded a concept that brought all citizens of the capital together. An AGORA. This was a meeting place for people to come and talk, to share their ideas, and exchange knowledge. This was a unique event, and was one of the building blocks to the evolution of modern democracy.

As coaches and therapists in the track and field world, we often find ourselves in a culture of ‘secrets’ and ‘closed books’. ALTIS is changing that stigma, with an open and engaging approach to sharing learned experiences, and working together to make our sport better.

What is AGORA?

In alignment with ALTIS’ education and high performance principles, AGORA will serve the sporting community with five different pillars of education and content for a self directed approach to learning:

1. 360° library – An online resource for presentations, videos, training tips, and methodology for coaches and therapists

2. Apprenticeship – Apprentice Coach Program (ACP) and Performance Therapy Program (PTP): A medium to long term, practical, hands-on experience working alongside ALTIS World coaches, therapists and athletes.

3. Council – an interactive and accessible space for like-minded individuals to share ideas and discuss current issues at the ALTIS AGORA Council on Facebook.

The last 2 pillars of education are:

4. Classroom (online education courses), and;

5. Mentorship (Mastermind Sessions)

These last 2 pillars will be revealed in detail soon, with an exciting new learning structure that will be available in 2017.

ALTIS is as enthusiastic as they are committed to continue being a part of the ongoing education and growth of coaches, therapists, and athletes. Join the family, and help #carrytheshield.
