Precision Sport Science

Activity: Visiting an external institution


I was asked by this company to be involved in some research into long-term athlete development for paediatric and adolescent athletes. After consultations with my ADR and the head of the HDR unit, I was provided funding from this company and the University to visit their company based in San Francisco, USA to determine if it is feasible for us to have PhD students based in their company. The company focuses on paediatric and adolescent physical development with the goal to improve sporting performance and reduce the risk of injury in this population and to maximise their potential to gain college scholarships or play professional or Olympic level sport.
