Exercise and Sports Science is one of the new term electives offered to Year 10 students in 2023. Across the term, the students experience what it’s like to be an Exercise and Sports Scientist and the importance of collecting data to ultimately improve an athlete’s performance. The students have been utilising a range of new testing equipment, that targets their muscular strength and power output. The battery of fitness tests included an adduction squeeze, squat and counter movement jump and an isometric mid-thigh pull. The students will use this data to analyse their own performance and then apply this understanding when evaluating the demands of netball and football at an elite level.
