Club Development focus sports have been identified for extra support from Warwick Sport & The Department of Physical Education & Sport. These sports are competing and performing at the highest levels within university/national sport or have been identified by national sporting organisations for extra development and support.
First team members of focus sports receive specialised sport science support from the Fitness Development Team. Our aim is to support these athletes and coaches in creating a performance environment to compete at the top level.
Sports Development Focus sports are:
Men's Rugby Union
On an annual basis, Performance Sport staff meet with the coaches, captains and committees of these sports to plan our service delivery for the next year.
A focus sport will typically receive free strength and conditioning, fitness testing and programming and will have access (free or subsidised) to physiotherapy and sports massage. On a weekly basis, staff may run fitness sessions, warm-ups and cool-downs as well as recovery sessions. Sports nutrition and psychology are run as workshop style sessions as agreed with the coaching staff. Pre-season camps are run in certain sports.
