A Level P.E. do Sports Science

The A Level PE students enjoyed a day in the sports science laboratories at the University of Brighton, on Friday 2nd December which are accredited by the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences. After a guided tour of the labs, including the biomechanics lab and environmental chamber, the morning session allowed students from Burgess Hill Girls and a group from Battle Abbey School to participate in, and administer a VO2 Max test and a Lactate Threshold test. The students were able to learn, and apply their knowledge of factors that affected the performance of the subjects. The afternoon session enabled all the students to take part in a range of field tests to assess the different fitness components required for their various sporting activities.
