Coaching Knowledges

Sports Injuries Handbook

Understanding the dynamics of sport performance

Diagnosis and management

Edited by Jim Denison

Christer Rolf Too often coaching is seen by sports science students as mechanistic and prescriptive. What a coach does in training and on the sidelines, however, is far more complex and involved than simply setting exercises and drills. Effective coaching requires a range of ‘knowledges’, from the pedagogical to the sociological, physiological and psychological. In this book teachers, lecturers and coaches from Bath University’s ‘Team Bath’ coaching and teaching faculty look at how various ‘knowledges’ influence every coach’s daily practices. • Paperback • 224pp • 234x156mm • Black & white photos • Territory: WO ISBN: 9780713681864

Price: £24.99

A practical handbook on diagnosis and management of common sports injuries. Written for GPs, physiotherapists and sports therapists to tailor diagnosis and suggested therapy, as well as for coaches and athletes, and for mateur sportspeople who want to know what to do if they injure themselves. A clear and easy-to-follow design with one injury explored per page. Includes the most common lower and upper extremity injuries occurring in team sports such as football, rugby, cricket, and some non-team sports injuries such as tennis, running, swimming, skiing and dance. • Paperback • 240pp • 230x189mm • Colour photos • Territory: WO ISBN: 9780713679502
