Lumsden, Matthew

Matthew currently works as the Technical Programs Director for a large soccer club in Alberta. He has coached at the Provincial Level in Canada and with the Youth National Club league in the United Kingdom.

Matthew initially decided to pursue the MHPCTL degree to enhance his understanding of current high-performance trends and to apply more informed practices into his current and future working environments. According to Matthew, the program “has reinforced my philosophy of implementing evidence-led practices within my day-to day environment, while a major benefit of the program is that the many hands-on projects I completed benefited the organization for which I work in real way.

“The MHPCTL program has provided me with a great foundation for a well-balanced and comprehensive understanding of the various elements of high-performance sport. Programs such as these continue to raise the standards of coaching and add credence to the professionalism of our industry. When it comes to online learning. I really enjoyed the blended learning approach between the residential weeks and online teaching. It provided a flexible approach around full-time work and a busy family life.”
