The athlete monitoring cycle: a practical guide to interpreting and applying training monitoring data

The athlete monitoring cycle: a practical guide to interpreting and applying training monitoring data | lIASIng | Scoop.it
Given the relationships among athlete workloads, injury1 and performance,2 athlete monitoring has become critical in the high-performance sporting environment. Sports medicine and science staff have a suite of monitoring tools available to track how much ‘work’ an athlete has performed, the response to that ‘work’ and whether the athlete is in a relative state of fitness or fatigue. The volume of literature, coupled with clever marketing around the ‘best approaches’ to optimising athlete performance, has resulted in practitioners having more choices than ever before. Furthermore, the range of different practices used in sport and the lack of agreement between parties emphasise the importance of having a clear rationale for athlete monitoring. The aim of this paper is to provide a practical guide to strategic planning, analysing, interpreting and applying athlete monitoring data in the sporting environment irrespective of data management software.

When deciding on the athlete monitoring tools to use with your athletes, the first question one should ask is “What do I want to achieve through athlete monitoring?” Quite commonly, the answer is to maximise the positive effects (eg, fitness, readiness and performance) and minimise the negative effects (eg, excessive fatigue, injury and illness) of training. Once practitioners know the reasons for athlete monitoring, appropriate tools can be chosen in order to answer the athlete monitoring question.

For example, if practitioners wish to maximise ‘fitness’ and minimise ‘fatigue’, then appropriate monitoring tools to measure these outcomes are necessary. Measurement of fitness improvements for a Premier League football player (eg, a Yo-Yo test) …

Introduction to Sport Performance Analysis

The course is particularly relevant for coaches at Level 1-2 in sports such as soccer, rugby, basketball and hockey, as well as teachers of PE in secondary schools. The course is also very appropriate for sport coaching students and others who might progress to further training and become accredited sports performance analysts.

Upon registering for the course, you’ll receive log-in details which will give you 6-months access to the website, where you can study, via distance learning, at times that suit your existing commitments. You’ll receive extensive support including an online Q&A session with tutors. At no point is there any requirement to attend the University’s campus in Newcastle.
