Analysis of sports Performance Assignment 2 Match and Performance Analysis

Learning Aims

Introduction • In elite sport today, it can be the smallest margin between ‘winning and losing’ or ‘success and failure’, but the impact can be massive. • Given the huge amount of time, dedication, investment and reward that is involved in sport today, sport performers, coaches, and managers need to understand the importance of observing, analysing and evaluating sports skills and techniques when trying to enhance performance.

• As part of your assignment you have to cover the 3 areas of performance from • Technical/tactical (shooting, passing, tackling) • Physiological (speed, strength, agility) • Psychological (motivation, confidence, arousal) • Biomechanical (speed, momentum, motion)

Psychological profiling • A lot of mistakes can be attributed to weaknesses in the mental aptitude of the performer. Coaches should also consider an athlete's psychological profile if they want to make sure their athletes' have the best chance of succeeding.

• The physiological performance of an athlete does not take place in isolation from the psychological aspects. The mind body connection is a strong one and psychological factors are important. Athletes' undergo all the normal stresses of life that play on a person's mind, as well as the specific psychological factors related to their performance

• Examples of the aspects you should consider in the profile are: • Concentration • Ability to refocus • Commitment and determination • Training commitment • Team work • Emotional and physical control • Relaxation

• Psychological assessment • One common method that psychologists use to measure the needs and abilities required for your sport is to complete a questionnaire. The results of which can produce a psychological profile to highlight areas of strength and areas for development which are important for both athletes and coaches to understand. • Please click onto the blog and complete the questionnaire

Physiological assessment • Many physiological assessment techniques exist within sport, some assessment techniques can be classed as general fitness tests, and others can be classed as sport specific fitness tests. Both general and sport specific tests have advantages and disadvantages

Task • What physiological tests can you think off and what are there advantages and disadvantages. • 10 mins

• A key advantage of general tests, such as the bleep test, is that normative data is available which allows comparisons of athletes of similar ages and abilities. This also allows targets and goals to be set when athletes are looking to improve their performance. • A key advantage of sport specific tests, such as the Netball Specific Fitness Test (NSFT) for netball (developed by Gasston and Simpson, 2004), is that the tests mirror the actual demands of the specific sports game play. The results produced from undertaking these specific tests provide coaches and players with much more specific feedback in regards to their sport. This allows them to plan training programmes specific to the demands of the sport to fully prepare the athletes' for match play or the event.

RUGBY PLAYER: FULLBACK • What are the physiological demands for this player? • large number of intensive efforts of 5 to 15 seconds' duration with less than 40 seconds' recovery between each bout of high intensity activity. (anaerobic endurance) • 2 halfs of 40mins, 15mins half time break

What are the physiological demands of your chosen sport • Task • What are the physiological demands of your athletes sport • What physiological tests can you use to test that component • Now that you have this data what can you do with it?

Technical/tactical • Pick a sport in pairs • Think of technical and tactical skills in that sport • For example number of passes, number of completed passes, number of passes less than 10 yards • Think of at least 10 • Put this information into a table.

Nearly There • What are the 3 areas that we covered? • What do you think the learning aims were? • How does the information that we have covered today relate to the assignment brief
