Memphis Tigers Athletics

 

Our Memphis Tigers receive world class sport science support through the Human Performance Center. Led by our director with over 15 years of experience in elite applied sport science, projects are designed based on the needs of the athletes and delivered in partnership with coaches to achieve maximum impact.

With a focus on collaboration, projects begin with a key question from the sport, then merge the practical knowledge of coaches, athletic trainers and strength staff with the scientific knowledge of multiple researchers of both the College of Health Sciences and across the University to generate applied outcomes in key areas of performance.

Our key performance areas, as identified by our head and assistant coaches across campus, position each of our sports science projects within one of five areas:
