Thanks for showing an interest in Sport at USW. Our taster days, can be booked as either a half day (one subject)  or a full day (two subjects). A typical day includes a Strength and Conditioning session in the morning, which looks at a battery of fitness tests helping to assess speed and strength. The afternoon session then looks at Sport and Exercise Science including a V02 max test and Hydrostatic Weighing.

Alternatively, we can look at options with Rugby Coaching in the form of analysis and Football Coaching and Performance. If you have any requests, or queries around risk assessments please do get in touch [email protected] and we can look at personalising the day for you and your students. 

Please do note, we do prioritise the use of our spaces for current students first as a result of this Wednesday's do tend to be the best for a full day visit.
