Abstract

The purpose of this study was to understand the demands placed on an elite Division III women’s soccer team and explore the relationship between environmental conditions and intensity. We analyzed data from GPS units collected during the 2018 season of a division III women’s soccer team. Position (forward, midfielder, defender, and a hybrid midfield/defender position per coaching strategy) and session type (practice, competition) served as independent variables. Dependent variables included total distance, work rate, and intensity. We collected weather data from the start of each session and explored the correlation between WetBulb Globe Temperature (WBGT) and intensity. The interaction between position and session type was significant for intensity (p
