You will explore different techniques for analysing performance including notational analysis and the use of technology to improve performance.You will cover high performance coaching using the most up to date analytical tools. You will examine elite sports performance, gain an insight into leadership and management skills and develop an understanding of physical education and pedagogical issues.
