The #1 Sports Science Resource.
Science for Sport is an online learning resource for all things related to sports science.
Created by sports scientists, for sports scientists.
Our #1 aim is to make the complex topics easy to understand, for everybody. With so much conflicting, opinion-based information online, we decided it was vital to build a reliable and trustworthy home for everything related to sports performance; helping you stay up-to-date in this rapidly growing industry.
We provide educational content from articles, videos, podcasts, infographics, jobs, and even a Research Digest for those who want to excel in this field.
The website is run by highly-educated and qualified editors (see below) who also have quality experience in high-performance sport. When writing the articles, our content authors are required to examine the primary scientific research and synthesize the information for our readers. Users are encouraged to submit corrections and any research we may have missed.
To become the World’s #1 educational resource for Sports Science.
