Video: Saints host Sports Science Undergraduate Summit

By SFC Media Tue 21 May Club

Southampton Football Club opened the doors to University students offering an insight into how sports science is applied within a Premier League football club.

Saints staff shared their knowledge from various fields including strength and conditioning, return-to-play protocols and recovery strategies to the students, who are all aspiring sports scientists themselves.

The format included lectures, practicals as well as presentations from current work placement students at the club.

Many of the club’s staff have followed the same path as graduates in sports science, so the summit provided a unique opportunity for students from across the UK and Europe to learn from the best.
