Article
The transfer of training of the hang power clean to skating starts in men's ice hockey was evaluated applying Verkhoshansky and Siff's proposed criteria of dynamic correspondence to the existing research. A relatively high degree of dynamic correspondence was evidenced throughout the criteria, although with a consideration of the sagittal plane alo...

Predicting athlete injury risk has been a holy grail in sports medicine with little progress to date due to a variety of factors such as small sample sizes, significantly imbalanced data, and inadequate statistical approaches. Modeling approaches which are not able to account for the multiple interactions across factors can be misleading. We addres...

Fixture congestion and travel are broadly known to be challenges to NBA teams and mitigation strategies remain topical despite some recent changes to the competitive calendar. Most organizations have adopted some strategies for managing athlete loads based on biometric data and arbitrary influences. A macroscopic examination was performed to determ...

Sport scientists and strength and conditioning coaches are showing growing interest in the magnitude, orientation, and application of ground reaction force during acceleration actions in sport, as it can identify the key mechanical determinants of performance. Horizontal force-velocity pro-filing or sprint profiling helps practitioners understand t...

Sprinting is a key action in team sports such as Rugby Sevens, a new Olympic sport. Recent research has shown at length the importance of technical or mechanical proficiency for sprinting performance. Simple methods of profiling mechanical characteristics of athletes have been developed utilizing three sprints reaching maximal velocities and demons...

Rugby Sevens, a new Olympic sport, features high intensity intermittent running and contact efforts over short match durations, normally six times across two to three days in a tournament format. Elite Rugby Sevens seasons often include over a dozen competitive tournaments across less than nine months, demanding deliberate and careful training-stre...
