What will the Workshop cover?
The seminar will cover how coaches can effectively use low-cost and time-efficient simple video analysis to help to improve the performance of their athletes/teams.

  • How and when should we give feedback to athletes?

  • Tips for successful video analysis

Michael Hanlon is a lecturer and researcher in biomechanics and performance analysis at Waterford Institute of Technology. He lectured previously at the University of Ulster, following the completion of his PhD at the University of Limerick. His background is in the biomechanical analysis of individual technique, however this has broadened to the more general field of performance analysis over the past seven years. Michael has experience of the applied use of video analysis for both individual and team-based sports notably with paralympic silver medallist Orla Barry (biomechanical analysis of discus throwing). Michael has also coordinated some performance analysis with Waterford United (Soccer) and The Belfast Giants (Ice Hockey).
