Applying Sport Science to Coaching (EDPN6017)
UNIT OF STUDY
You do not have to be an expert in sport science but an understanding of the fundamentals of sport science will add to the effectiveness of your coaching. The skilled coach is able to take the specialised information from sport science and blend it into a multidisciplinary perspective. The challenge for the coach is to develop an integrated model with the right mix of training activities, techniques and sport science support to optimise performance.
