A new partnership with the Sports Labs at CCCUPosted on: 27/09/2018
BCGS is delighted to announce a new partnership with the Sports Laboratories at Christ Church Canterbury University enabling our students to access four enrichment activities in the field of sport science.
The first session was field based testing, and this will be followed with sessions in sports nutrition, sports psychology and biomechanics. This varied and truly enriching programme will allow our students a unique opportunity to challenge themselves in a range of sports science disciplines.
Students took part in a field testing circuit in the University's Movement Analysis Studio enabling them to experience the same tests as an elite athlete, acting as the Sport Scientist and administering the tests. Students were able to use a range of ‘gold standard’ equipment and compare their performance to normative data to identify their strengths and weaknesses. The students were also able to familiarise themselves with the correct protocol for administering the tests.
It was a fantastic morning working with the CCCU staff. There was a lot of competition on each fitness station as students sought out the kudos of being the most powerful or most agile. Students administered the tests effectively and hopefully some were inspired to consider sports fitness testing as a future career or education pathway.
Students are already looking forward to their next visit.
