Google Sheets for Sports Science Course

Google Sheets for Sports Science Course


Despite the accelerating sophistication of commercial software tools and the increasing popularity of open-source coding tools like r and Shiny, the world still runs on spreadsheets. Although Excel rules the spreadsheet world, Google Sheets is more than a pretender and offers a number of features that have huge potential to change the way sports scientists collect and manage day-to-day operations and collaborate with athletes and support staff, especially if they are running on a limited budget.

Rather than an exhaustive Google Sheets user guide, this series of videos provides a flyover of basic functionality and uses three projects to demonstrate its capabilities.

If you are an Excel user you already know how to use Google Sheets, but in this course, you will learn how it can be much more powerful than Excel.

The intention of this course is to open your eyes to Google Sheets and the power of the entire Google Suite.

In this course, you will learn the following:

  1. Collecting data with Google Forms
  2. Building dashboards from multiple data streams
  3. Creating a collaborative monitoring system
  4. Building a strength training template
  5. and much much more…

Who is this course for?

This course is meant for sports scientists, strength and conditioning coaches, performance managers, and anyone looking to master Google Spreadsheets for sports.

I am a former sport scientist, now I just build Excel systems and work with software tools (CRM, Salesforce, PM, Sharepoint) and technology. My day job requires me to sit between the IT department and the sports performance department to make sure that Strength and Conditioning Coaches, Nutritionists, Performance Analysts etc have the hardware and software tools they need to do their jobs.

    Awesome stuff. Ive noticed recently google sheets app builder. Do you cover that in the course Lythe?

    The Google Suite had something called App Builder but it disestablished it recently. The best alternative is something called AppSheet (which is an easy tool to connect your google sheets). I build several Forms during the course using the built-in Google Forms functionality. You can use these natively on smartphones so they feel a bit like apps. Happy to answer further Q’s.
