Main themes
Sports training is a multifactorial structured process (content, methods, organization, evaluation, planification) that includes the learning of complex technical movements. The main topics presented in this teaching unit are : - part A (30h), the biological dimension : development of basic physical capacities of strength, speed, flexibility and cardiovascular endurance. - part B (15h), principal models in motor control and learning, motor learning variables, and practical applications will be presented.

At the end of this learning unit, the student is able to :

1 Part A : The students will understand the theoretical foundations of training strategies for improving performance in non competitive physical activities as well as in individual and collective sports. They will be able to correctly analyse usual practices in sports and physical activities. (part A) Part B : the students will acquire theoretical references in motor learning, useful for their professional practices.
