About the course
Take advantage of the growth in demand for highly trained strength and conditioning coaches working in high-performance sport, sports development or other environments where superior levels of athleticism are required. This course will teach you how to optimise human performance so that athletes of all abilities and from a range of sports can perform optimally while also minimising their risk of injury. You will study the biomechanics and physiology of the human body, focusing on the development of strength and power and cardiovascular adaptations to aid training and performance. You will learn to apply this to your coaching practice while also understanding the perspectives of other practitioners, including nutritionists, physiotherapists and psychologists. There will be the opportunity to design and implement a programme for athletes or specific populations, allowing you to apply your theoretical knowledge to real-life situations. This experience will help you develop your communication skills and establish positive working relationships with a wide range of people, including players, athletes, officials, coaches and parents.
