Abstract

This thesis aimed to assess an accelerometer system (Player load) for measuring the external load of Australian football. Study one established the reliability of a triaxial accelerometer (MinimaxX 2.5) in a laboratory and sports-specific field setting... Study two assessed concurrent validity by measuring relationships between Player load and locomotor load, internal responses, perceptual responses, and physical performance tests, during small-sided Australian football games."
