This session covers the key knowledge and skills pertaining to Unit 4 AoS 2 surrounding ergogenic aids and recovery methods and strategies. It can be used as an introduction to the content or as an advanced session to consolidate student knowledge and understanding.

Students will conduct hydration testing in our sports science laboratory and develop a drinking regimen to enhance endurance performance under the supervision of a sport scientist. The session will also include the development of a recovery program by students to use with their sport. Teachers can use the hydration data and recovery programs developed to direct classroom discussion.
