Evaluation And Feedback Of My Volleyball Skills

1765 words - 8 pages

Everyone has a general level of skill development, however people don't understand how to take the skill and improve it. In this essay I will evaluate my volleyball ability and the feedback techniques that were displayed by my physical education teacher. Throughout the unit I made a four week journal to record the type of practice, feedback from game play and training. To evaluate my skill level in volleyball I examined what is the nature of a skill, how skills are developed and how they are effected as well as the importance of feedback.
According to Will Smith (2013:1) “The separation of talent and skill is one of the greatest misunderstood concepts for people who are trying to excel, who ...view middle of the document...

Skill development is controlled by movements that the body has previously encountered, for the development of the athlete to improve they are categorized into three different stages. The steps are cognitive, associative and autonomous. Cognitive is known as the beginner stage, this level is the introduction of the skill where the athlete learns the basics. Associative is the second stage of skill development where it focuses on practicing the skill, finally the autonomous stage is where the skill that you perform becomes automatic. In theory these levels of skill development are related to motor learning as the more confident you get, the more precise the movements of muscles are. Throughout this unit I believe I was in the associative stage as I have had previous experience of volleyball but still needed practice in game scenarios to be able to perform this skill autonomously. To support this assumption the evidence from my journal explains that the type of activities we did were all about practicing the skill then transferring that skill into a game scenario. This means that we were practicing the skill then trying to perform this skill in a game. As skill development sounds like it is all about being skillful it can be also be affected by different many factors.
An athlete’s skill development can be affected by a range of different factors. These factors can either be physical or mental. Amezdroz, G. Dickens, S. (2010) (1) claims that the major factors are “speed, agility, co-ordination, flexibility, balance, ability to process information, age, gender, heredity, physical characteristics, personality, motivation, quality of instructor and type of practice”. The major factors that had major effect on my volleyball development was balance, motivation and the type of practice. (2) “Volleyball players use the basic stance as they prepare for the serve receive or defense - when they are getting ready to move to the ball.” Balance affected my development as a volleyball player because I was unbalanced when I was performing the required skills. (3) “Most players have trouble getting motivated to do drills and just simply want to get the drill over”. Motivation affected me because I wanted to play game related scenarios to get a real feel for the game but we mostly did drills. Throughout the unit the overall type of practice that was conducted ultimately affected my volleyball development; this was because of massed practice. This was shown in game like scenarios where there was a high possibility of performing a skill regularly. These factors help my motor learning as they focused on certain movements that are used in volleyball. Throughout the unit feedback was passed on by the teacher and fellow peers.
When learning a new skill there is a good chance the skill is being performed incorrectly, to correct this feedback is used. (4) “Feedback is the information that a diver receives about their performance, whether that performance is in practice,...
