Proposed outcome: To investigate strategies to gather and use data effectively to make decisions to guide athlete programming.
With greater emphasis on evidence-based tracking, monitoring and reporting, the High Performance sport landscape is becoming a minefield of data that is being used to inform athlete progress and training decisions.

This Powering Podiums will explore how provincial sport organizations and coaches can use data more effectively to make programming decisions.
