R & Analytics for Sports Science Virtual Workshop - Part 2

R & Analytics for Sports Science Virtual Workshop - Part 2

A Deep Dive on Using R and Analytics for Performance Sport Virtual Workshop

Given the rise in technology and data availability, sport scientists have more data available to them than ever before. Due to this increase, we now have the opportunity to explore interesting and complex questions in performance sport, also due to the rise in free, open-source programs such as R that enables the deployment of non-linear and advanced analytical techniques, to assess data. This virtual workshop will build upon part 1 by performing a deep dive into different analytical techniques that are available to analyse sport performance data. The webinar will give sport scientists an overview of these analytical techniques, then include an interactive session on how to analyse and visualise common types of sport performance data, using these techniques, via the open-source programming language R.

Prerequisite: It is recommended that you have attended ESSA's R and Analytics for Performance Sport Workshop - Part 1 before attending this workshop. If you have not already attended this course, you can enrol in the online activity here.

Presented by Dr Alice Sweeting

Alice has been a Lecturer and Researcher at Victoria University (VU) since late 2016, after completing her PhD with Netball Australia and the Australian Institute of Sport. Alice currently supervises PhD students and is involved in research projects, as part of a strategic partnership between Victoria University and the Western Bulldogs. These sports analytics projects include applying data mining techniques to wearable sensor and skilled output data, to evaluate team-sport matches and training. Alice’s key areas of interest include spatiotemporal data analysis, the use of wearable sensors and the complex systems approach to understanding team-sport behaviour. Alice currently teaches into and chairs the Graduate Certificate in Data Analytics for Sport Performance at Victoria University, whereby students learn how to analyse, visualise and interpret sports performance data, using programming languages and analytics.
