    Skylar Richards - Data Analysis vs Data vs Science & the importance of defining those roles.

    Skylar Richards is the current Director of physiology and science at Orlando City SC. Skylar has a wealth of experience within some of North America's most recognisable sports organisations in particular within the MLS.

    Skylar started his career with a primary focus on injury prevention through scalable detection and recovery strategies for athletes. These strategies focus on increased training availability and physiologic monitoring which has been a strong focus for Skylar throughout his career and industry experience.

    As a strong advocate for truly understanding the needs for athletes to succeed, Skylar speaks on his belief that the industry seems to far to often confuse the definitions of a data analysis and data scientists. The importance is placed on being able to resources your high performance department with the right people to nurture a successful team or even better athletes.

    Skylar's work focuses heavily on the recovery and prevention techniques for elite soccer in the United States, and in 2015 founded a partnership between national clubs to open the first US professional soccer recovery lab highlighting the prevalence of soft tissue injuries and immobilization, nutrition and anti-inflammatory modalities within the MLS and beyond.
