Professional Master in High Performance in Team Sports
It might not be a surprise to learn that team sports are too complex to be observed, understood, and taught using the conceptual simplicity provided by behavioral and mechanistic theories, as has been the case until now. These theories, with their linear, monocausal perspectives, simply do not encompass the infinity of alternatives that underlie the development of team sport.
We believe that this is an exciting time for the development of training in team sports. We are now moving away from the classification of individual sports which rely on traditional science for progress, based on established theories such as the linear cause-and-effect relationship, among other concepts, and the understanding of the athlete as a conventional machine.
In this Master, we propose to free ourselves from this past, which has already borne fruit, and use contributions from complexity sciences to give us an understanding of the nature of team sports which is tailored to the reality of game events, where an athlete must compete in a context of dynamic interactions which are sometimes unexpected, partly unknown, always irreproducible and cannot be trained for using traditional methodologies. Fortunately, we are now experiencing a very different scenario made up of episodes that are imbued with uncertainty, variability, turbulence, self-organization and emergencies, in which there is simply no room for accumulative and monocausal criteria. In this Master program, we invite you to share these ideas in order to optimize the training environment of team sports.
