Course Description

This is a practical course that will introduce students to various compensatory exercises. Sports injury prevention and minimization of the negative impacts of sport on the athlete’s body and health should be the first priority of all athletes, coaches and healthcare providers. The main aim of this course is to target the sports with the highest rates of trauma and overuse injuries, and to discuss potential ways to keep athletes healthy for life. Students will consider how to offset the negative impacts of sport on postural and movement stereotypes, and how to influence them with health-related physical education resources tailored to the individual needs of the athlete.

Learning Objectives

Students will:
– Understand the basic theory of prevention: kinesiology (function and structures of locomotor system)
– Learn about sport specific prevention (e.g. soccer, basketball, running etc.)
– Learn about issue specific prevention (e.g. overuse injury, ACL injury prevention etc.)
– Understand the practical use of these tools in PE lessons and sports training

Course Prerequisites
Basic understanding of anatomy and physiology is welcome.

Methods of Instruction
The course will be taught using these methods of instruction:
– PowerPoint presentations
– Practical exercises (exercise sessions)
– Class debates

Assessment and Final Grade

1. Assessment Type 1: Theory of the movement system (kinesiology) 20%

2. Assessment Type 2: Methods of prevention – theory 20%

3. Assessment Type 3: Methods of prevention – practice 20%

4. Assessment Type 4: Practical lesson management 40%

Marking scheme assessment PG 1-4 (1 = excellent; 4 = fail)

Course Requirements

Theory of movement system

The following theoretical knowledge is required:
– basic understanding of anatomy and physiology
– knowledge of postural and movement stereotypes, and how to influence them with health-related physical education
Midterm exam – anatomy, theory of movement system.

Methods of prevention – theory

The following theoretical knowledge is required:
– basic theory of prevention: kinesiology (function and structures of locomotor system)
– sport specific prevention (e.g. soccer, basketball, running etc.)
– issue specific prevention (e.g. overuse injury, ACL injury prevention etc.)

Methods of prevention – practice

Knowledge of the following practices is required:
a) physical exercises – principles and methods of stretching and strengthening and their utilization in prevention
b) postural correction and body awareness
c) relaxation (Schultz, Jacobson)
d) breathing exercises (to support relaxation, posture etc.)

Practical lesson management

The model lesson must be designed so that the main methods of prevention are tailored to the individual needs of an athlete (sport specific). The criteria of evaluation are structure of the lesson and the ability to select relevant methods of prevention in relation to the specific sport injury (or issue) prevention.

Attendance is mandatory.
