Topic: The Rhythm of the Game: Optimizing Athlete Recovery During Play

Lecture Description: Team sports such as basketball or hockey present a unique challenge to the athlete’s physiology. For example, a series of abrupt changes in pace can rapidly fatigue players and leave them unable to match a sudden push by the opposing team. Dr. Skiba will discuss his recent research publications, which describe new ways of profiling and understanding athlete performance. These tools permit coaching and management staff to better optimize team dynamics and strategy.
