Elite athlete development requires the use of complex, well planned training systems developed by exercise professionals. High Performance I explores the skills and knowledge required by coaches, sports trainers and physical development staff to provide guidance to athletes on a range of theoretical and applied learning experiences. The unit provides the education required to utilise, monitor and reflect on an athletes own physical development system and to maintain / enhance strength & conditioning for sporting performance. Through the sports technology system Axiom and their own Athlete Journals, students will submit daily diary entries regarding training loads, training quality, wellness, injury, recovery and movement screening. These diary entries and self-reflections, inclusive of goal setting and physical performance testing, allow the student to become responsible for monitoring their own physical performance and progress, and assist and instruct others.
