The module will include an introduction to biomechanics to include both kinematics and kinetics. It will cover the basic laws of motion, projectile motion and other physical theories to aid in students’ understanding of movement. Students will explore the movement of the body describing different types of motion and be able to explain the anatomical and mechanical reasons behind the movement. This knowledge will be applied to a wide range of sporting disciplines using both theory and practical based sessions.
