Subject Aim

Therefore, sport management professionals need to be conversant with health issues and strategies available to enhance their impact. High Performance II aims to introduce a wide range of contemporary health issues and health science concepts relevant to sports managers. This subject also focuses on exercise physiology and nutrition and their importance to athletes as well as the general community. Through the use of the sports technology system Axiom and their own Athlete Journals, students will continue to 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, will expand on the knowledge obtained in High Performance I, and allow the student to become responsible for monitoring their own physical performance and progress, and assist and instruct others.
