New Special Interest Group - Sport, Exercise and Health Analytics

27th January 2020

'The BASES Sport, Exercise and Health Analytics Special Interest Group (SIG) consists of a range of individuals with different levels of experience both in their respective fields and in their experience with different methods of data analysis and different types of analysis software. Group members range from academics to practitioners, professors to PhD students, with various interests across health, exercise, and sport.

The group’s mission is to debate, evaluate, recommend and share information on all methods of data analysis that can usefully be applied in sport, exercise and health settings. These will include traditional biostatistics, Bayesian data analysis, machine learning and causal modelling.

The aim of the group being to provide direction, advice and resources for sport and exercise science researchers, reviewers, editors, practitioners, students (undergraduate and postgraduate) as well as those involved in teaching data analysis methods in a sports and exercise science context.

We aim to hold at least one face-to face meeting year, but the main method of interaction is going to be a private dedicated online-forum. It would be great to get an even wider group of practitioners, researchers, data analysts, applied statisticians, statistics/research methods lecturers/teachers involved and, in particular, get female representation.

The online forum will be a friendly, informative space, where individuals can debate different approaches to data analysis, share experience, share resources they have found useful, recommend software and help shape advise to the wider sport, exercise and health research community.

BASES members can opt in to communications from this Special Interest Group via their Member Profile (in the Members' Area) to receive updates and information on how to get more involved.

Or alternatively email to be added to the group.


BASES stands for the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences. BASES is the professional body for sport and exercise sciences in the UK.
