Collegiate sports is a multi-billion dollar industry in the USA, and many schools have a wide range of sports. For sports such as football, baseball, and basketball, there is a clear path from college to the professional ranks via player drafts. Athletes from individual sports such as track and field, tennis, and golf may also progress into the professional arena. As a result, strength and conditioning and sport science is an important focus in collegiate athletic departments. In other parts of the world (e.g. Australia, Asia, Europe), college-aged athletes may participate more in club-based systems or developmental competitions. Regardless, it is important for the strength and conditioning practitioner and sports scientist to understand the physical performance (e.g., strength and power, aerobic and anaerobic capacity, movement coordination, flexibility) of collegiate or college-aged athletes. The aim of this Special Issue is to: 1) describe the physical performance of collegiate or college-aged athletes across a range of sports; 2) discuss specific topics that apply to collegiate or college-aged athletes (e.g., special training considerations, concussions and injury risks, nutrition); and 3) determine best practices for training specific qualities (e.g., strength and power, speed and agility, dynamic stability, cardiovascular endurance) for collegiate or college-aged athletes.
