S&C Performance Model
Optimal preparation is crucial to success within the performance model. A high attention to detail is taken to ensure the maximum possible opportunity for development. This requires collaboration between S&C, sport specific teams and development/national squads to collectively combine factors including number of training hours and loading, fitness testing results, recovery status, nutrition and psychological aspects of performance for each individual athlete.
Components of the S&C Programme
Every pupil at Glasgow School of Sport has a S&C programme which supports their sport specific development. Pupils receive between two and six hours of S&C a week with the number of hours increasing as athletes progress through the school.
