Fatigue Science + Seattle Sounders FC Sports Science Weekend

700-SportsScience

Hosted by David Tenney this June, the Seattle Sounders FC will bring in some of the brightest minds in sports science and performance training for the 2014 Sports Science Weekend. Invited speakers will join Sounders FC coaching staff in sharing the latest methodologies in soccer training, strength & conditioning, performance analysis, and recovery methods.

Joining the line up of sports scientists, technicals coaches and performance managers is Fatigue Science’s sleep and performance expert, Pat Byrne.

“It’s great to have the opportunity to speak about sleep, fatigue and performance in a room full of athletic coaches.” Pat says,  “Sleep is a huge part of the human performance model, and as pro teams engage with new scientific approaches to optimize their athletes’ performance – sleep science should, and will, be a component of that. I’m looking forward to sharing our insight and experience on the subject with this group.”

Sports Science Weekend will be held June 12-14, 2014. For more information, including the full line up of presenters, visit SoundersFC.com.

Rest and Relaxation- The First Step for Poor Sleepers 

One important job as a performance coach in sports is to balance both the training and recovery with our players. Currently, I am an NHL strength and conditioning coach for the St. Louis Blues, but my role extends beyond the weight room and hockey rink. Sleep is a major component of recovery, and supporting a good night’s rest is everything in sport. Our athletes are perpetually exploring ways of sustaining elite performances. Sleep is arguably the best method available to do so. With endless stressors, high-pressure scenarios, and chaotic travel schedules, it can be difficult to find the off switch when the time comes for sleep. In this article, I share my some personal "bio hacks" for resting more effectively. I also explain why we need to consider more effective strategies for rest, with the ultimate goal of setting ourselves up for higher quality sleep.
