  • Discuss the various strategies, apart from coach observation , that might be employed to help  analyse and refine the tactical and behavioural aspects of an individuals performance.
    • INTRDUCTION: The main factors of performance that may be monitored or analysed when seeking to refine performance can be grouped under the following headings: physical factors, technical factors, tactual factors and behavioural factors.
      • ADDITIONAL INFO: The focus of analysis depends very much on the sporting activity and the level of the performer with different sporting activities placing a different emphasis on these components.
    • PARAGRAPH ONE: define tactical factors- These are important in many sports, especially games. Out come is significant as well as the execution. Good tactical play is about decision making.
      • NOTATIONAL ANALYSIS: using symbols etc. to record information about performance. This could be statistical-patterns of play-technical errors and ahcievements- work and rest intervals.
        • Match analysis only provides raw data but it can help to make more informed decisions about performance.
          • EXAMPLE FOR NOTATIONAL ANALYSIS: Comparing performances between teams, team members and within individuals is often more accurate with notational analysis if ratios are used, such as shots taken to shots scored and passes made to passes completed.
            • VIDEO ANALYSIS: Provides objective information and can enhance performance analysis. This is a Permanent, immediate, technological aid.
              • EXAMPLES:  COMPUTERISED SYSTEMS OF PERFORMANCE.PROZONE: this is used increasingly by professional football clubs such as Arsenal and Manchester united. It is also used by the England Rugby Union team. They plot movements every 1/10th of a second and can give information about patterns of play and other tactical indicaors
    • BEHAVIOURAL FACTORS- DEFINE: Observing behaviour and assessing why performers behave in a certain way is crucial to sport
      • QUESTIONNAIRE: Provides information from performers on issues and feelings about performance.
        • The most common are self report questionnaires where the athletes complete themselves using the Linkert scale.
          • EXAMPLES:   Competitive state anxiety inventory-2 (CSAI-2) And the sport competition anxiety test (SCAT)
            • VIDEO ANALYSIS: Focus would be on individual rather than the team or game (maybe use of Playercam). Allows coach and performer to analyse behaviour post-game in particular situations.
              • NOTATIONAL ANALYSIS: Possible but difficult to use without other forms of performance analysis data.
                • EXAMPLE:  You could look at numbers of fouls committed, booking/send-offs in football if you were trying to observe the levels of aggression of a player but you also need knowledge of the actual situation. STATS ALONE WILL NOT TELL U ANYTHING.
