The State of Union Between Strength & Conditioning and Sport Science
In this episode we talk with Dr. David Ridpath about the growth and future of college athletics, the sometimes perverse sources of funding in athletics and how the focus often has little to do with appropriately developing athletes. While we ran out of time at the end, Dr. Ridpath also provides a glimpse into some possible fixes and several options for developing alternatives to the system of college athletics we are familiar with today.
In the first episode of Tea with Dr.G and Coach C, we had the privilege of chatting with Dr. William (Bill) Sands. In this episode we discuss Dr. Sands’ experience in sport, coach education in the United States (or the lack thereof), certifying bodies for S&C/sport science and the general quality of athlete development in the US and internationally.
