About the Project

This research seeks to explore various methods and technologies to quantify the training and competition demands, as well as health status and behaviours of team sport athletes and referees. Nutritional, training, and recovery practices aimed at enhancing aspects of health and performance in team sport athletes and referees will also be examined. Furthermore, this research may extend to investigating the utility of team sports to improve health and function in the general population. A range of methodological approaches may be used to monitor participant workloads (perceptual, heart rate, accelerometer, GPS measures), sleep (perceptual and wrist-worn actigraphy measures), recovery status (neuromuscular and physiological assessments), and decision-making across phases of the competitive season or applied interventions. It is preferred for students to be located on-campus to complete projects in Rockhampton, Mackay or Cairns.
