Today, Podium Analytics launches the SportSmart Hub – a platform that provides educational content, best-practice advice and resources to help PE teachers and sport coaches deliver safer sport.
The Hub has been designed to deliver both original and curated content that provide insight, education and useful resources relating to key health issues in youth sport – from risk in sport and growth spurt to mental health and the role of equipment for injury prevention.
Our ambition is to help translate the information and resources that are currently available at elite level into the grassroots environment, to make sure everyone can enjoy sport as safely and for as long as possible.
The SportSmart Hub is free to use and easy to join. Existing users of the SportSmart App can use the same log-in details to sign in and enjoy.
You can create an account here: sportsmart.org/hub
What’s on the Hub?
The first year of content on the Hub will focus on the overall topic of ‘Prevention’. We’ll be releasing content editions. The topics covered in these have been chosen based on conversations with the teaching and coaching community.
For each topic, we’ll provide an introduction with key takeaways, downloadable resources and insights from subject matter experts. Plus, we’ll provide recommendations on how all this information can be brought to life in the school and club environment through top tips, conversations with fellow PE teachers and sports coaches and downloadable takeaways. We’ll be covering the following:
- An introduction to Injury Prevention
- Growth Spurt
- Risk in Sport
- Concussion and Head Injury
- Screening and Monitoring
- The Role of Equipment
- Mental Health and Psychological Wellbeing
- The Principles of Adaptation
- Warm Up and Cool Down
- Behaviour Change
Alongside this, enjoy exclusive feature content – from conversations with our athlete ambassadors to behind-the-scenes footage and a brand-new podcast series with broadcaster, Simon Mundie.
We hope you find it useful and informative!
