In the Spring of 2016 FLS jointly hosted with Loughborough University a conference at Loughborough's new London campus in Olympic Park. This was on the subject of "To develop the leadership capability of sport participants by exploring innovative approaches to coaching".
FLS hosted a launch conference in 2011. Contributors such as Baroness Sue Campbell discussed the importance of leadership in and through sport and the means by which this was best developed. We had the opportunity to discuss the findings of the FLS survey on ‘Learning to lead through Sport’. This conference served as a springboard for later workshops and conferences.
