Pacey Performance Podcast #147 - Sean Cumming (Senior Lecturer in Sport & Exercise Sciences at the University of Bath)

August 3, 2017

In this episode of the Pacey Performance Podcast, I have the pleasure in speaking to Senior Lecturer in Sport & Exercise Science at the University of Bath, Sean Cumming. Sean is an expert when it comes to the topic of relative age effect, biological maturity and youth development. I know there are lots of listeners out there coaching youth populations so I am hoping that recent podcasts featuring Rhodri Lloyd, Joe Eisenmann and now Sean will give those coaches some fantastic information to take a use in their practice. 

In this episode, you will learn -

  • Who is Sean Cumming (background, experience, and current role)
  • Benefits and limitations of early and late maturers 
  • Where bio-banding fits and the decisions whether to bio-band a player or not
  • Psychological benefit of bio-banding
  • What is the optimal banding?
  • When does the late developer catch up mentally and physically?
  • How does a coach/scout know the biological age of a player?
