Sports & Exercise Science
Sport and Exercise Science is the application of scientific
principles to how humans function in sport, health, fitness, wellbeing and
performance. You will learn about sport and exercise topics such as anatomy and
physiology, wellness, mental health wellbeing, human behaviour, exercise and
nutrition. The practical components to this programming will enable you to
understand the science behind how the body works. This is more than just sport!
The Sport and Exercise Science pathway is interactive, hands on and great for individuals who are interested in helping people reach their potential. You will be given insight in to what it takes to create champions and if you are up for a challenging and exciting career in a growing industry, you can start a higher level of sport and exercise qualification at Wintec.
