Introduction to Fitness Testing for Football

8 week online course

This certificate course content covers fitness testing for sport in general and how to apply it to your chosen sport – men or women’s football. The Certificate aims to upgrade your knowledge on the theory and practice of fitness testing in general and specifically as it applies to strength and conditioning coaches who wish to monitor the athletes, players or teams under their care.

This certificate starts by examining how fitness testing started in the laboratory of our universities and how it took a long time before field or on-site testing was developed.

The purpose of this unit is to introduce students to the concepts of fitness testing and how to fitness test. It is paramount that the coaches develop the skills and experience which will allow them to carry out fitness tests. For this reason the course looks at the pre-requisites that need to be put in place to carry out fitness tests both from preparing the athlete/player and preparing oneself, the tester. We also look at the reason why we carry out a testing programme and we take into account the inherent dangers that can be associated with fitness testing in particular.
