Students from all around the world joined Summer School of Sport and Exercise Sciences

Students from all around the world joined Summer School of Sport and Exercise Sciences

The first year of the Summer School of Sport and Exercise Sciences took place at the Faculty of Sports Studies from 9 to 13 July 2018. Students from the Czech Republic, Serbia, USA, New Zealand and China had the chance to learn about the most interesting topics from the sports science and explore the modern facilities, laboratories and all its equipment at the Faculty.

The intense 5-day program covered topics of human performance, applied kinesiotherapy, sports nutrition, recovery, training principles, psychomotor activities and sports massage. In contrast to regular classes, the Summer School lectures and workshops emphasize the practical side of learning. The students had the opportunity to use the laboratory equipment with the assistance of the lecturers. Some volunteers undertook several tests; their results were analyzed and compared with the average population and with some of the professional athletes.

Apart from the lectures, the students explored Brno and what the city has to offer. Participants enjoyed a guided tour around the city centre, visited the interactive VIDA Science Centre and learned about the beer brewing process at the Starobrno brewery.
