    Student thesis: Doctoral Thesis


    The body of work presented in this thesis has studied the multifactorial aspects of injury risk and performance in the sport of field hockey and identified specific factors that are associated with risk of injury and performance. In particular, it has focussed on the battery of fitness tests used to screen players, added additional lower limb screening tests including balance and proprioception, and analysed associations between these tests, injury risk, and performance as rated by the coaches on a formal rating scale. This thesis has provided information that can inform the decisions of the stakeholders to provide better interventions for injury prevention and performance enhancement.
