Improving Human Performance in Sport through Physical, Psychological, and Social Sciences.

The research through the Canadian Sport Centre Atlantic will provide more information to people in the sport and physical activity area about strategies for increasing performance levels of athletes and coaches. A combination of research from the physical, psychological, and social science areas provide a comprehensive approach to understanding performance and how it can be improved, predicted and stabilized. In this project, we aim to expand the existing body of knowledge around neck exercise as it relates to concussions, examine mental health and wellness of coaches and support staff in sport following major events, and better understand the characteristics of competent coaches and how to develop and effectively train them.
