Taking the subject onto an entirely new level

Visible to anyone in the world


My students for 'Sports Nutrition' could vary between GPs and nutritionists to the young swimmer new to competitive swimming. I expect to split the class between swimmers and parents/guardians, and  by age and by default, within reason, educational attainment. Talking to primary school swimmers will be different to college and secondary school students - especially those with a science A level. 

Simply offering further reading is one approach. I also have papers on 'compliance' and the vital role of the parent/guardian to changing behaviours so that they are aligned with what a competitive club would expect.

Considering starting my 4th Degree

Visible to anyone in the world
Edited by Jonathan Vernon, Thursday, 5 Sep 2019, 09:19

I had or have credits towards an Open Degree, an Masters in Education and even an MBA - though time is fast running out as I completed these in 2013.

Meanwhile, as I take up a part-time role as the Head Coach of a Swimming Club, as well as looking at adding to my Swim England qualifications I am looking at taking a Sports Science Degree with the Open University.

Sport and conditioning science into practice

The image at the top is the 8 x 25m pool at The Triangle, Burgess Hill where I have coached and taught swimming since 2008. This is part of a test 360 VR tour I created using a Ricoh Theta SC camera and ThingLink.
