Abstract

Scientific support consists of helping coaches, athletes and/or sports teams with recording, data collection, assessment and/or decision-making processes through the use of scientific procedures. Its implementation entails important modifications in and adaptations of the protocols used by researchers in their laboratories. This paper uses a practical case study to describe and explain the steps and adjustments coaches and researchers need to effect in order to conduct this cooperative work. It should always be borne in mind that the purpose of scientific support is to enhance the performance of athletes and not for athletes to be used as research subjects.
