Performance analysis is the newest of the sports science disciplines and investigates actual sports performance or performance in training. Analysis can include technical, tactical, KPIs, coaching behaviour and movement analysis within a game. It can also cover pre-match, live, post-match analysis, scouting, talent identification and trend analysis.
This course has been developed in response to the marked growth in demand for people with performance analysis knowledge, competencies and skills across a range of sporting clubs and organisations and it will be an area of expansion in the future.
The course is aligned with a number of national governing bodies of sport to facilitate experiential learning. Graduates will be well equipped to work with sport organisations and teams (national and international), and feed into and drive the sports performance analysis research agenda in Ireland and internationally.
