Credit points: 15

Subject outline

Students will develop a theoretical understanding of the physiological and biomechanical principles that underline sports performance, with particular emphasis on how sporting technique and performance enhancement relate to the function of the body. Practical classes will reinforce knowledge and assist students in developing practical skill in movement analysis and understanding energy system interaction. Students will learn to demonstrate skills in conducting and interpreting various measurements.

Intended Learning Outcomes

01. Interpret and apply knowledge of the interaction of the body's energy systems to generate energy for sport and exercise performance.
02. Synthesise knowledge of the acute and chronic physiological responses to apply adaptations to sport and exercise.
03. Critically apply knowledge of basic biomechanical principles to the analysis of sports performance and technique.
04. Synthesise and apply knowledge of biomechanical principles to the analysis of human movement in the context of sport, exercise, health and activities of daily living.
05. Analyse and interpret physiological and biomechanical assessment data and movement patterns in order to design and implement a range of training interventions.
06. Communicate, in a clear and coherent manner and using a range of media, scientific data analysis and movement pattern information to clients, colleagues, and other professionals.
