Sport and Performance Division

The BASES Sport and Performance Division specialises in the performance aspects of physiology, biomechanics and psychology and therefore attracts a wide variety of members and discussion topics. Recent Division days and workshops have included fatigue science and elite team sport practical applications. 

The Sport and Performance Division aims to support applied coaches and practitioners, sports scientists and researchers. Much of what we discuss brings performance science from the lab to live sporting environments.

If you are a BASES member, check out the Sport and Performance Division Hub in the Members' Area, where you can access a range of resources including videos and presentations from the BASES Conference and Division events.

Come and join us at an event to discuss all things 'Sport and Performance'.
