This unit is designed to provide students with an understanding of how sub-discipline studies in exercise science can be used to study human performance in sport and physical activity. The approach taken in the unit is to translate theory (presented through classes and readings) into practice (achieved in practical laboratories and assessments). As such students will utilize and develop practical skills and strategies that are relevant to becoming practitioners in exercise and sports science and teaching and coaching. The content will focus primarily on the application of sport science within team sports, with particular emphasis given to soccer as an example of how this can be successfully achieved. The use of technologies to plan, assess and monitor in-field performance will also be utilised (e.g. hardware such as GPS and heart rate monitors and software applications designed to code video, periodise the annual plan and monitor athlete wellness).


Final examination (1.5 hours) 30%, cloud (online) quizzes 10%, two laboratory practical reports (20% each) 40%, group presentation and lesson plan 20%. Students are required to attend practicals (80% attendance hurdle requirement)
