Whilst coaches attempt to provide objective feedback to develop teams and athletes, the unchecked observational process inevitably leads to the presence of subjective bias. This impacts heavily on perceived areas of focus, often creating ineffective training and competitive environments.
Once an area restricted to elite top-end clubs, performance analysis has now permeated through to all levels of sport, firmly embedding itself as one of the sports science disciplines.
This module seeks to provide students with the knowledge to integrate performance analysis within their teams. It will afford students the opportunity to develop skills that will provide invaluable within their organisations but is also transferable to alternative sporting environments through the use of industry standard software applications and processes.

4th August 2021 at 4:30pm
Assessment – Students will undertake the course assessment asynchronously over the course of 3 hours.
The assessment for this module is project based. The student will be provided with a scenario and game footage. Students will demonstrate their ability to create a performance analysis system and code a game based on their system design. They will be expected to critically analyse the performance, and based on the analysis, provide appropriate feedback mechanisms to inform the coach. A duration of 3 hours has been allocated for completion of the project.
