VASPS was an enriching experience. The new topics and also the anecdotes presented related to sports psychology left much learning. I think virtual congresses like this allow us to connect regardless of where we are and share our experiences from all around the world.
VASPS is a great opportunity to learn from exceptional sport psychologists from all over the world and connect with them. Getting an insight into the practices from colleagues and the opportunity to exchange ideas and experiences with them, helps to inform ones own practice, especially for young professionals just entering the field. Additionally, VASPS offers a wide range of interesting, relevant, and sensitive topics, from both the practitioner and athlete perspective, which not only inform but also inspire. And an added benefit to all of that is, that you don’t have to worry of missing anything, as you can just watch the sessions in your own time, fitting your life schedule …and all that from the comfort of your home. Great work from Christian putting together such an amazing summit!
As sport psychologist you should always strive to gain more knowledge and develop your skills. VASPS is a great way to do exactly that and learn from sport psych practitioners from all over the globe. I particularly appreciated the fact that a vast number of different subjects has been addressed during VASPS 2019 & 2020.
VASPS is a great opportunity for every sport psychologist but especially for the young ones, just beginning their career. Not only to gain knowledge from practitioners all around the world, but also to build up an international network of colleagues. It is so reinforcing to attend to talks in an international and digital format, to chat and to share experiences or to learn from the mistakes of others. I am already looking forward to this years VASPS under Christians great organization, to meet interested people, all with a great fondness of sport psychology.
VASPS offers effortless access to highly valuable knowledge in the field of sport psychology. This is unique and remarkable! I really appreciated Christian addressing sensitive topics and treating them with great care!!
Listening to the stories of the athletes and the inputs of the professionals made me feel the importance of sport psychology and inspired me to make this field more accepted and popular!
I enjoy (re-)listening to VASPS whenever and wherever I want to, while doing sports or sitting on the balcony enjoying the sun!:)
I can’t wait for VASPS 2021 to keep improving my work quality as a sport psychologist! Thanks!
By organizing VASPS Christian Zepp provides extremely well organized summits and the exceptional opportunity to learn from the very best in the field. I highly appreciate that the speakers share their invaluable experience of applying various methods and techniques in their practice. These summits help to take one’s own practice to the next level not only by being provided with outstanding high quality content and additional great learning and reading recommendations from the speakers but also by getting access to a platform for connecting and exchanging experiences with other sports psychologists from around the world. Thank you Christian Zepp for these great Summits!
What a great experience. I don’t know if there has ever been a comparable source of this kind of high quality content in talks and discussions in such an easy accessable online set up. For me, the VASPS 2020 was definitely a huge win. It brings the best out there right into your home. Thank you Christian for bringing these great minds together.

VASPS 2019 was the first international event that I attended in my life. The experience was sensational! The Summit had renowned professionals and was formatted in a model where we are not only listeners, but also invited to share our questions and learnings. In addition, what caught my attention was the availability of Christian Zepp before, during and after the event, being always present, concerned with our learning and constantly reinforcing our motivation. Delighted by the experience, I attended VASPS 2020 again, where new positive points were added to the event. Highlight for the factor of addressing issues related to discrimination in sport. I am a mild autistic person, and my goal as a Sports Psychologist is “to make high-income those who, many times, society deems to be low-income” and, since the beginning, I have been able to count on all the attention, respect and, mainly , incentive, by Christian Zepp. In summary, VASPS is a rich, dynamic event, where several subjects of high importance in the scope of Sport Psychology are treated, with the participation of several excellent professionals and, mainly, with an organizer who is always present, and concerned with our best experience. I hope, God willing, to be again at VASPS 2021. Cesar
VASPS offers the opportunity and space for practitioners to come together and update their knowledge in a way that traditional conferences do not. I love that it allows for relevant and much needed conversations in the field while also providing resources that you can play with in your own time.
I attended each edition so far and always found exciting and helpful content. It is a go-to for both novices and more experienced experts. Highly recommend!
Invaluable knowledge – and experiences
All of the invited speakers are renowned in their profession for delivering high quality work to some of the best athletes from around the world. In addition to invited speakers other sport psychology professionals also share their best practices, methods and experiences with us so that we all can learn from each other.
You will learn about problems and challenges sport psychologists face, how they improve their practice, methodological approaches they apply, how they work in youth and team sports and what they do to reduce the stigma around mental health.
Save time – and money
No traveling fees, no accommodation costs, no expensive restaurants, no waiting time at the airport. Looking for a cheap flight or, decent accommodation, traveling alone, waiting in lounges, standing in overbooked trains, or buying new clothes in a foreign city because the airline lost your luggage… We’ve all been there!
Just sit back on the couch in your pajamas, cook your lunch or enjoy all the presentations, talks, and interviews as .mp3s while running or driving to your next appointment. Once you’re done listening, join the community and discuss the content and methods shared, or have others learn from your experiences.
