Architectures for distance education of Athletes
MetadataShow full item record
The improvement of athletes through coaching is critical for their development. Any athlete unable to access coaching due to distance or lack of personnel can be disadvantaged. Competitive sports such as cross country mountain bike riding contain sub-elite athletes who want to improve and progress to the elite level, but are unable to do so due lack of coaching support. This is a disadvantage for the entire sport since the athlete’s skills and training methods are not being supervised. The web can be used to help this problem by giving athletes access to a specially designed coaching program without a coach being physically present. Therefore a “virtual coach” web site was created.
