Abstract

This thesis explores the available resources and research pertaining to the process of athlete monitoring as well as how this information can be used to build an internet based athlete monitoring system. There is currently no system available that provides proper communication tools while also providing the means to track numerous variables to include strength and conditioning programs, performance testing, competition performance, injuries, therapy, pharmaceuticals, medical procedures, psychological status, and academic standing.

The objective of this thesis is twofold. First, is to review the literature and determine the needs of a web based athlete monitoring system. Second, is to provide a business plan that will be used in the process of web development and raising capital.

This thesis has identified the needs of a web based athlete monitoring system, a business plan for commercial use has been created, and based upon this business plan web development is currently in progress.
