Introduction research project
Perfecting skills in domains of human movement such as sport, music and dance is a difficult challenge. Many repetitions and training hours for several years are necessary to achieve excellence. But overuse and injuries lure at the background to hamper progression and discontinue careers. Scientific research shows that with high quality practice it is possible to achieve more in less time, increasing the chances to reach (and maintain at) the top while remaining physically and mentally fit. The aim of the research project Training for Excellence (T4X) is to design, implement and evaluate innovative practice methods in sport (basketball), classical music and contemporary dance to perfect the required movement skills.
The research falls under the Amsterdam Institute of Sport Sciences (AISS) , a Sportinnovator Center in which the Vrije Universiteit Amsterdam, Amsterdam UMC (both AMC en VUmc), Amsterdam University of Applied Sciences, Applied University InHolland, OLVG, Reade and Topsport Amsterdam collaborate. AISS investigates practical questions in sport, movement and health in close collaboration with sport organisations and other societal partners.
