Working closely with our coaches, our strength and conditioning team seek to develop both the physical and athletic aspects of the programmes.
Focusing on the specifics such as strength, power, speed and agility our team also support the development of general conditioning and durability, supporting athletes to reduce their risk of injury and keeping them more active to pursue their sporting aspirations.
At UEA we also operate a student internship programme which enables students who have an interest in, or passion for, strength and conditioning, the opportunity to work closely with student teams under the supervision of our lead S&C coach.
Physiotherapy and Massage
Supporting and supported by our S&C team, we offer physiotherapy and massage services to students, ensuring you can effectively meet the demands of your sport.
Enabling students to be supported before, during and after events is a key part of our support service to performance athletes as we acknowledge the freedom of competition when feeling fit and health leads to greater performance, success and growth for an individual.
Similarly to our S&C programme, students support the delivery of physiotherapy and massage delivered on behalf of UEA+Sport and we encourage their continued development through sport.
Both internal and external professionals in the field of nutrition offer you a wide range of individual and group workshops on the importance and benefits of good nutrition.
