Transcript of BTEC Sport Science Taster Session

fig. 1
BTEC Level 3 - Sport and Exercise Sciences
In Close Up Detail...
Year 12

3 units with approximately 4/5 tasks in each unit.
Units studied are:

Anatomy for Sport and Exercise
Sport and Exercise Physiology
Sport and Exercise Psychology

Year 13

3 units with approximately 4/5 tasks in each unit.
Units studied are:

Sports Coaching
Fitness Testing for Sport and Exercise
Fitness Training and Programming
How is the course assessed?

You are assessed by complete various task dependent on the unit.

These task will either be at Distinction, Merit or Pass level. In order to achieve a Distinction or Merit you will need to achieve a Distinction or Merit in each task and in all units.

The tasks include producing booklets to help others train, produce reports on specific fitness levels, produce posters on the functions of the body, presentations on anatomy, videoing coaching lessons, etc

Generally you will have a few weeks to complete each task, and will be able to submit the work for review as many times as you wish in order to check your progress.
Lets talk about some examples of how the theory within BTEC PE relates to sport...
Skills You Will Need to Be
Successful in the Course...
Ability to work independently.

Excellent research skills.

Motivation to return to notes after lessons to ensure and add depth to your understanding.

Drive to stretch your knowledge through seeking out alternative sources of information.

Excellent knowledge of your sport.

Willingness to undertake practical tasks.

How does an athlete's muscle fibre type affect their performance in sport?
How will an athletes personality affect them within their sport?
Research Task

Pick an athlete from this years Olympic Games.
Research into their current training schedule and methods of training, describing how these enable the athlete to perform at an elite level.
How would you test someones fitness who you believed had a predominance of type 2b muscle fibres?
Two types of personality

Type A
- lack patience, desire competition, rush to complete activities, have high levels of stress and lack tolerance towards others.
Type B
- more tolerant towards others, more relaxed and reflective, have lower stress levels and show higher levels of creativity and imagination.

Did you know?

Recent research shows that personality accounts for less than 1 percent of performance variations
Type A are more likely to continue participating when they are not motivated.
There are three different muscle fibre types all present in the body:

Type 1 - AKA slow twitch fibres which aid muscle contraction over a long period of time

Type 2a - Fast twitch fibres which can be used for aerobic and anaerobic almost equally.

Type 2b - Fast twitch fibres which aid quick muscle contraction at a powerful rate
The body when in flight is like any other object in sport and
is known as a 'PROJECTILE'

It follows a 'PARABOLIC' motion of flight due to effects of forces.

Its flight is subject to different factors:
Velocity at Release
Angle of Release
Height of Release
An athlete with type 2b muscle fibres would be tested in anaerobic activities based on the following components of fitness:

Speed (35m sprint test)

Power (Vertical Jump test or Wingate test)

Strength (Hand grip dynamometer or 1 repetition max test)
