Validation of the Athlete Sleep Screening Questionnaire (ASSQ) in a student-athlete population

The proposed project is designed to address the gaps in knowledge as described above and critical issues by capturing a large amount of student-athlete sleep data using the Athlete Sleep Screening Questionnaire© (ASSQ©), which is a sleep screening questionnaire specifically designed for athletes. It is a highly efficient and convenient tool, given training and travel time constraints where polysomnography, the gold standard of objective sleep measurement is not feasible.

The relationship of sleep quality to recovery, training capacity and performance in elite athletes

The Centre for Sleep and Human Performance has been funded by Own the Podium to develop tools. strategies. and Interventions that will accurately evaluate the sleep quality of athletes. This partnership provides the Centre with a unique opportunity to have unrestricted access to a population of elite athletes who train and compete above the Intercollegiate level and whose motives for training and performance are not confounded by the external stressors professional athletes are exposed to.
