Course detail

Sport training

CESA-SSPTAcad. year: 2020/2021

In the course Sports training are synthesized theoretical knowledge from the courses Anatomy, Functional Anatomy, Physiology, Physiology of physical load, Social science of sport I, Biomechanics and develops in theoretical and practical topics the issue of adaptation of human organism to various types of stimuli for various sports performances . The student will get acquainted with the basic principles of sports training, understand the patterns of development and maintenance of training, performance and the link between health prevention and regular physical activity. They will acquire basic information about the need and possibilities of monitoring the state of the organism associated with the development of training and performance and the role of specifically focused monitoring in various types of sports performance.

Learning outcomes of the course unit

The student will acquire basic knowledge in the principles of sports training and a the human body adaptation to regular physical activity.
The student will understand the meaning and effectiveness of individual training methods, means and forms of sports training for the purpose of development and performance.
The student acquires basic knowledge and skills about the need to monitor conditions in the process of sports training /laboratory and field/ using motor tests and devices.
The student will realize the possibilities of using modern technologies for testing in sports.
The student will understand the development of motor abilities, skills and the possibility of their monitoring during the training process.
The student will know the methods, training tools and forms of the training process and the basic principles of their usage.
The graduate of the course will be able to prepare device for testing and individual motor tests, implement testing and process data for their analysis and evaluation.

The written exam verifies that the graduate is able to:
- explain the basic principles of fitness development, training, performance in sport,
- describe methods of developing motor skills and abilities,
- explain the need for regular testing and monitoring in sport,
- describe the management of various types of monitoring and testing processes in sport,
- list appropriate devices for testing motor skills.
