The Science of Shinty: A needs analysis and training considerations.

If you are an active player, coach or member of the support staff please complete the below survey which will inform a UHI study.

“As it stands there is little research on shinty and one of the outcomes of this project is to develop a needs analysis which will act as a blueprint for training and development within the sport.
The first phase of the project is to gather the opinions of coaches and support staff on training, testing, monitoring and the use of technology to support these processes within the sport of shinty.
The second phase will involve a battery of tests being run at several shinty clubs and GPS data from match play being gathered. The findings of this study could be used by clubs to monitor and develop athletes while the average scores for specific positions will provide performance targets for players moving from youth to senior teams.”
