Jayhawk Athletic Performance Lab

The Jayhawk Athletic Performance Lab is part of the Osness Human Performance Laboratories housed in the Department of Health, Sport, and Exercise Sciences. 

Mission & Vision

The mission of the Jayhawk Athletic Performance Laboratory is to provide sport science research and information support to University and area sport teams, coaches and athletes.  The consistent theme of research and support is centered on optimizing high performance in athletic settings.

The vision of the Jayhawk Athletic Performance Laboratory is to create a sport performance-based research organization that goes beyond just benefiting KU student-athletes, coaches, sport programs, and the HSES academic department.  Directions include the following collaborations and services:

  • developing educational opportunities for KU students through internships and coursework;
  • collaborations with other KU departments and units;
  • collaborations with other universities in the U.S. and abroad;
  • collaborations with corporate partners;
  • collaborations with secondary school systems across Kansas; and
  • creating educational opportunities via conferences, or visiting professors or students.

Research Team

Recent collaborations between KU Athletics and the Human Performance Laboratories in the Department of Health, Sport, and Exercise Sciences have resulted in the creation of the Research and Coaching Performance Team. This team of coaches, sport scientists and students has been developed to optimize and coordinate collaborative efforts for the study of sports performance. Through these efforts, coaches and athletes can benefit as information is made available concerning training methods and modalities.
