For sports performance coaches around the world, Science for Sport is their go-to resource for evidence-based information.
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.
