UBC is the top varsity athletics program in Canada. Part
of the recipe for success is the team behind the team. We are the
practitioners who keep the athletes healthy, getting stronger physically
and mentally supporting athletes and coaches to reach their potential.
We are the interface with Kinesiology and other faculties, where novel
ideas are tested for real world application and new technologies are
utilized to monitor athletes and enhance performance.
The UBC Thunderbirds Sport Science Symposium is a one-day
sports science symposium hosting a wide breadth of presenters and
attendees across all disciplines and sport science facets at UBC. This
symposium aims to build the network amongst students and professionals,
highlight ongoing student projects and applied sport research, impart
trans-disciplinary knowledge, and inspire further involvement with the
department’s Integrated Support Team (IST). Join us on May 3rd, 2019,
from 8:30 AM – 4:30 PM at the UBC Life Building, room 2201.
