BRINGING SCIENCE TO TREATMENT

Jason Tee

Jason Tee is a Strength and Conditioning coach and researcher in athletic performance, focusing on injury reduction and training prescription, particularly in rugby union players. Prior to his career as a university lecturer, Jason spent 12 years working as a coach within youth and development sport. This practical experience provides a unique background to research and teaching which strict academics often aren't privy to. This has also fuelled his desire to produce practically relevant research which will impact practice at all levels of sport. Jason's current areas of research include reducing injury risk in rugby, integrating technical/tactical and physical training, and the effect of gender differences in developing athletes.
