Athlete Management Systems (AMS) provide a central repository for performance, training and medical data for elite and developing athletes. Self-report wellness measures as monitoring tools are used extensively in elite sport as valid indicators of the recovery status of an athlete. Wellness parameters such as sleep quality and quantity, fatigue and stress are being monitored in professional sport via AMS; however, wellness monitoring with an AMS has not been trialled in the professional Australian Performing Arts Industry. This research aimed to evaluate the practicality of using an AMS to monitor wellness parameters in a professional ballet company.
