Starting from the premise that it is impossible to manage what one cannot measure, everyone involved in constructing team sports processes needs to be able to put values on the physical and physiological demands put on players, both in competition and in training. For this reason, controlling, monitoring and managing workload has been one of the biggest areas of interest for coaches and physical trainers, starting in the second half of the 20th century up until the current day.

Technology has played a fundamental role in this regard, with data collection becoming an increasingly simple and effective task. Since GPS devices, accelerometers and other devices were introduced, coaches and physical trainers have had the ability to measure and evaluate an ever-increasing number of training variables in their ongoing pursuit of two main goals: optimizing performance and preventing injuries.

In this context, Tim Gabbett is a specialist with a long career in the field. Currently he works training coaching teams in the most important leagues in the world, in team sports such as football, rugby and basketball. Tim’s ability to incorporate training load variables in both individual and team contexts has seen this author become a leading expert on this subject matter.

Load values and data should not be used or analyzed in isolation but rather in function of variables such as individual characteristics, the moment of the season, the team’s position in the competition, etc. In the Certificate in Workload and Injury in Team Sports, you will obtain the necessary tools and skills to develop a load management methodology in order to reduce injury incidence for your athletes.
