Sports Science Support can be delivered at all levels and provides some good insights into player and coach performance. A certain level of sports science can be delivered by coaches who have come through the coach education programmes.
Basic fitness assessment and performance analysis, and delivery of simple sports psychology techniques are part of the programmes. Advanced sessions using technology are offered and online webinars support learning and development.
