This unit is designed to provide students with an understanding of how sub-discipline studies in exercise and sports science can be used to improve 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, seminars and assessments). As such, students will utilise and develop a range of applied skills and strategies that are relevant to becoming practitioners in exercise and sports science, teaching and coaching. The content will focus primarily on the application of sport science within individual sports, with a particular emphasis given to athletics and exercise rehabilitation as examples of how this can be successfully achieved. The use of software to prescribe exercise, assess performance and present information will also be utilised. Following successful completion of all assessment items, students will be eligible for their Level 1 Athletics Coaching Accreditation with Athletics Australia.
Final examination (1.5 hours) 40%, coaching skills assessment 25%, written abstract and oral presentation 15%, written exercise program and its demonstration 10%, cloud (online) seminar quizzes 10%. Students are required to attend practical laboratories (80% attendance hurdle requirement) and complete all cloud (online) seminar quizzes.
