The BOP Ferns Club was set up to celebrate Bay of Plenty sporting success.
It also has a goal of nurturing the region's future sporting stars.
Last year the club held a highly successful sports coaching forum with a wide range of guest presenters and this year the event is to be repeated.
The 2017 Sports Coaching Forum will feature presenters Allan Jones (football), Simon Dickie (rowing), Kerry Hill (athletics), Dr Stacy Sims (endurance), sports psychologist Dr Andrew Waterson and Dr Angus Ross (strength and fitness).
The keynote speaker is renowned nutritionist Jeni Pearce, who will talk about the management of dietary and hydration issues, and there will be a forum on managing social media in sport.
After the London Olympics, Pearce relocated back to New Zealand from the United Kingdom, where she had been head of performance nutrition at the English Institute of Sport and the performance nutritionist for the British Olympic Medical Institute Intensive Rehabilitation Unit.
