Head of the division is EdD Natalia B. Novikova

The main scientific work focus of the division is the development of modern technologies of managing the training of high trained sportsmen.
Before 2018 it is planned to carry out scientific research on the following topics: ‘Method of Division of Sports Trainings Into Periods in Athletic Periodic Sports, Which Are Included Into The Program of Paralympic Games’, ‘Development And Scientific Justification of Biomechanical Criteria of Efficiency of Techniques in Skiing, Based on Video-Analysis of Movements of The Best Russian And World Racing Skiers’ and ‘Implementable Effectiveness of Sports Training of The Top Racing Skiers Based on Improvement of Technical And Tactical and Special Physical Training’.


Main methods are:
  • educational: the analysis of literature, sports diaries and competition score-sheets, as well as questionnaire surveys; video-analysis of movement technique biomechanics in sportsmen using Dartfish Pro Sute and VideoMotion StarTrace software; testing general fitness and special training; simulating conditions of training and competing activities of sportsmen;
  • psycho-physiological;
  • biomedical: a complex of methods using certain tools, which are carried out before and after physical trainings on in-patient basis and in the field;
  • methods of mathematical statistics.


The staff of the Division of Modern Technologies of Training for High Trained Athletes is actively collaborating with national cross-country skiing team (N. B. Novikova), Paralympic national rowing team (N. B. Kotelevskaya), with Deaflympic national snowboarding team (V. V. Muravyev-Andreychuk) and with Saint-Petersburg nordic combined and cross-country skiing teams (A. A. Zlydnev and G. G. Zakharov).
Over the past several years the division has been carrying out scientific and instructional work with Saint-Petersburg athletes. As a result of this scientific and instructional work the division provides their coaches with recommendations on personalization of training process.
