Will the course be sports specific?
The programme is suitable for anyone working in field of court sports. However, where possible we will create specific sport discussion spaces, working groups and networking opportunities to ensure that you can dive into the details with people who work in a similar context, but also benefit from the diversity of thoughts from coaches in other environments.
What level is the content pitched at?
The content is pitched at MSc level and above where detail, depth and debate are prioritised. The curriculum is not designed as a basic introduction. We recommend that all students have a foundational understanding of sport and exercise science and are actively coaching.
How long can I access the content?
Course content comes with lifetime access and then access to the ongoing guest sessions and discussion spaces is dependant on your chosen package
What if I cant attend the livee Q&A's?
If you can’t make the live Q&A's, you will still be able to network and communicate with your fellow students and ask questions through the online community platform.
I am a Sports Coach or a Physiotherapist, is this suitable for me?
If you work as part of a multi-disciplinary team to improve on pitch performance, and have outcomes which link to agility, there will be lots here for you. We cover injury risk, perceptual-cognitive expertise, and representative design. Plus, our mentors bring their own specific experiences and skills in application. If you would like to discuss more, feel free to reach out for a chat.
How will I be supported throughout the course?
There will be 2 x Q&A's throughout the 8 weeks of the course and an unlimited time to ask questions about the content on the community platform. 1 on 1 mentoring sessions are also available to students who wish to sign up for the mentoring package
Everyone is in a different place and wanting a different thing.
Choose a package below, all of which can be spread across multiple monthly payments!
