Learning outcomes

No. Learning outcome
1 Demonstrate knowledge and understanding of the multiple (inter-disciplinary sport science) factors influencing high performance, and the athletic development process, in different sport settings.
2 Be able to apply a range of different measurement or testing techniques along with accompanying analytical approaches to assess and evaluate athletic performance within specific sport settings.
3 Be able to synthesise research evidence and applied practice knowledge to design appropriate training/intervention programs which target either facets of athletic development, performance improvement, or injury prevention.
4 Demonstrate the ability to review and interpret data associated with athletic performance; summarise and present findings; and identify strategies/solutions to refine best practice at a practitioner or organisational level to facilitate high performance.
