As attention and funding increases for women's team sports, so too should the understanding of the support they require to physically compete at these higher levels. Strength and Conditioning for Women in Team Sports is a dedicated guide to upskilling S&C coaches who are working with female teams. It addresses the unique requirements for women in reactive multi-directional sports and provides recommendations on creating a positive environment to succeed

The main topics covered are:

  • Preparing to integrate into a women's team
  • Developing relationships and processes
  • Testing and monitoring strategies
  • Building databases and creating reports
  • Planning sessions and implementation
  • Injury, illness and managing return to performance

Female athletes deserve better. They deserve to be understood through their unique physiological, biological and biomechanical lens and offered support that's appropriate to their unique needs. They deserve programming and training prescription underpinned by 'female focused' research and applied practise, not what we have found to be effective with males. Jools has contributed to the 'pool of understanding' in training science for female athletes with this book which will help S&C and Sports Science Practitioners working across female Sports.
