Sport Performance Laboratories

On our sports courses you will be able to make the most of our state-of-the-art Sport Performance measurement equipment. It enables you to measure the impact that changes to a training regime can have, and how you as a coach can use that information to better athletes or a team’s performance.

We also provide you with opportunities to take your newly gained skills further by applying them directly with our industry contacts; developing not only your experience but enhancing your employability.
