Fatigue Science at 2014 World Conference on Science and Soccer

This week a couple members of the Fatigue Science team, including co-founder Pat Byrne, travelled to the University of Portland, Oregon to attend the 4th World Conference on Science and Soccer. On Thursday evening, Pat addressed a packed room of soccer coaches and some of the world’s top sports scientists on the subject of Managing Fatigue in Elite Athletics.

After a warm introduction by session chair and Head of Recovery with the Australia Institute of Sport, Shona Halson, Pat introduced the history of sleep medicine, why sleep matters and how it can be managed for better athletic performance. The group presented some great questions about the link between sleep and athlete performance, what the best approach to measuring it is and were interested in reading more about some of the studies referenced in Pat’s talk (like this one on circadian factors from Cheri Mah at Stanford University).

Conference delegates also enjoyed sessions on performance and match analysis, physiotherapy and injury prevention, women’s soccer, youth development, and technology.

Pat and the team will travel to Seattle next week for another presentation when the Seattle Sounders (also a Fatigue Science client) welcome the ‘brightest minds in sports science’ for their 2014 Sports Science Weekend to be held June 12-14.
