Coaching Science, Paperback / softback Book

Coaching Science Paperback / softback

Part of the Active Learning in Sport Series series


Coaching is an increasingly important area of sports science courses, and this text provides accessible and up-to-date coverage of this key topic.

Modern coaches need to be applied scientists who keep abreast of research and are able to apply a multidisciplinary understanding to their practice.

The book therefore examines coaching in terms of biomechanics, physiology and psychology, as well as perennial issues such as athlete motivation, nutrition, design of training programmes, talent identification, monitoring and ethics.

Written by an author who combines academic expertise with high-level practical experience, the book successfully links theory with case studies.
