Enhancing Sporting Performance

This exciting new programme, designed for athletes of all levels and students studying sport science, is taught by experts in the University of Waikato's Faculty of Health, Sport, and Human Performance.

Delivered through hands-on learning in the classroom, labs, modern gym, and trips to local sports organisations, students will develop knowledge in nutrition, recovery practices, physiology and prescription, strength and conditioning, coaching, performance analysis, and biomechanics.

While studying at Waikato, athletes will have the opportunity to continue with their sport, practicing with local teams in the evenings and competing on the weekends. Students will have access to state-of-the-art high performance training centres where researchers work with elite teams, including New Zealand Cycling and New Zealand Sevens rugby, to reach peak athletic performance.
