Her webinar titled ‘Understanding Anxiety In Adolescent Athletes’ spoke about anxiety and tools to assist coaches when these situations arises with players.

FDBA Basketball Development Manager, Jarryd Moss spoke about the presentation

“The opportunity to engage Dr. Jodi came to us through the work of our interim Junior Girls Coaching Coordinator, Rebecca Lanting so I’d like to firstly thank her for connecting us”

“Dr Jodi Richardson is one of the most respected professionals in her field and when we spoke with her about presenting to our coaches it was obvious that it was going to be extremely valuable”

“Mental Health and Wellbeing is a space we have worked hard to continue to resource and provide opportunities for our members”

“The feedback from the coaches was that they were all able to learn and take away some tips and resources that will help them better support our athletes, that is more important now than it has ever been”
