Description

This subject examines the role of performance and culture in high performance sport and builds on principles from relevant preceding undergraduate subjects. It is designed for recent graduates rather than those currently working in high performance sport.

Content focuses on developing a strong understanding of responsibilities and issues with reference to effective communication in athletic settings and environments. Students will learn to do a thorough critique of relationships and practitioner effectiveness in a variety of sporting groups. They will also practice building effective work environments and develop innovative training principles through the use of key sport science concepts and mission-focused lesson planning. The subject has a strong focus on preparing practitioners with relevant skills that can be utilized in the fields of exercise science, exercise physiology and strength conditioning. These skills can then be further developed during professional placements in latter stages within the Master of High Performance Sport course.
