Special Issue "Physical Performance in Team Sports"
A special issue of Sports (ISSN 2075-4663).
Deadline for manuscript submissions: 15 March 2020.
Team sports are the most popular game in the world, played at all levels (amateur and professional), all ages (children, adolescents, adults and elderly), and genders (male and female). In the recent literature, it has been shown how performance in team sports depends on high levels of technical, tactical and physical conditioning, which include anatomical, functional, biomechanical and physiological adaptations induced by training. Consequently, the aim of physical conditioning, as well as providing a stimulus with specific adaptations that will translate into better athletic performance, should be to protect physical well-being that is sorely tested by a sporting competition characterized by a long period of time. If there is no scientific knowledge about training, the increase in the load administered to achieve these objectives may stress the athlete by increasing the injury risk. This Special Issue of Sports aims at creating a multidisciplinary forum for discussion on recent advanced results in this area and, for this reason, calls on authors to submit original research and/or specific reviews that improve our understanding of “Physical Performance in Team Sports”. Potential topics include, but are not limited to: Physiological and psychological demands of game, strength and conditioning, match analysis and technological advances, functional evaluation, injury, prevention and rehabilitation, and performance analysis of female players.
