Interests: basketball; team sport; fitness and performance assessment; monitoring in sport
Baskeball is an international team sport, played across various competition levels by males and females, in over 200 countries. Despite the global popularity of basketball, limited research has been published regarding basketball practice and performance compared to other team sports. As a result, the aim of this Special Issue is to collate submissions specific to basketball on topics that may include, but are not limited to, fitness and performance assessment, player monitoring, training approaches, nutritional and recovery strategies, fatigue, technological advances, psychology, skill development, game-related statistics, and coaching. We are particulalry interested in submissions with applied outcomes for basketball practitioners centred on improving practices in basketball and aspects of player performance. Meta-anlayses, reviews, perspectives, opinion articles, commentaries, and original work will be considered for publication.
