Managing the Sport-EIS Relationship
Our job is to increase the probability of an athlete being successful. Our approach to doing this is based on creating a partnership with the sports whereby EIS practitioners are embedded into the daily training routine of the athletes to provide them with the science, medical and technology support they need to achieve improvements in performance. Our relationships with a sport are headed-up by a Head of Performance Support. They are a team of people with a technical background in performance science, medicine and coach who serve as the primary contact between the EIS and a sport and work together to develop a Performance Partnership Plan (PPP) for the sport.
