Team sports training is progressively growing, challenging strength and conditioning coaches and head coaches. As part of a well-prepared training strategy, it is important to establish a functional relationship among fitness assessment, load, and well-being monitoring and readiness analysis to identify the consequences of training stimulus for players. Each of these topics has to date been isolated in research; however, it is important to bridge the gap between them and establish a greater and more comprehensive approach among fitness adaptations, training monitoring, and specific interventions performed. This may help us to achieve a clearer view of the big picture in terms of the consequences for players, namely, considering their exposure to successful biological adaptations or less successful cases, such as illness or injuries.
As it is clear that more research should be done on the relationship among these dimensions and topics, the aim of the Special Issue on "Fitness Assessment, Athlete’s Monitoring Cycle and Training Interventions in Team Sports" is to publish high-quality original investigations, systematic reviews, and meta-analysis in the research field of team sports.
We look forward to receiving contributions related (but not limited) to the following topics:
- performance assessment and relationships between fitness measures;
- training load monitoring, well-being, and readiness in team sports;
- training interventions;
- complementary strategies for performance (e.g., nutrition, supplementation, psychology, injury preventions, recovery); and
- determinants of illness and injuries in players. We welcome papers related to evidence of successful intervention strategies. All manuscripts will be peer-reviewed by experts in the field.
