Sport Science Insider was set up in 2020 with the aim of building the world’s best sport science resource for students, coaches and athletes.

We focus on creating evidence-based, actionable and easy to understand sport science content – this is what we felt was missing during our time as students and academics.

A big thank you to Spark at The University of Leeds who supported the development of Sport Science Insider.
