As sport and health agendas continue to grow both nationally and internationally, roles within the sporting team are becoming more pivotal to optimise the preparation of athletes across all developmental levels. Maximising the performance of athletes is largely dependent on their ability to be physically prepared to withstand the rigors of their chosen sport. As such there is a growing need for exceptional graduates in this field. The Graduate Certificate in Strength and Conditioning at UC aims to provide the opportunity for current and future coaches to develop their knowledge and practical skills in line with key competencies of the profession. The course is constructed to include core building blocks of knowledge around training modalities, planning and monitoring, and coach communication. The course is two semesters in duration and is in a predominantly online format.
