EXECUTIVE SUMMARY / SYNOPSIS
This research task requires that, through participation in skill learning and game play during the volleyball unit we have been required to observe and analyse the characteristics of skilled performers; receive feedback on weaknesses in technique and develop and participate in training activities that could correct these weaknesses.
1.1 Give the reader a general overview of what is in the report.
Through participation in skill learning and game play during the volleyball unit, this report will observe and analyse the characteristics of skilled performer through feedback in technique that was given by my fellow class mates and the coach and develop and participate in training activities that could correct these weaknesses.
1.2 Background, aims and limitations.
LEARNING PHYSICAL SKILLS
1.3 A motor skill is a taught structure of movement that trust together to produce a smooth, efficient action in order to develop on a particular task. The development of a motor skill happens in the motor cortex, the area of the cerebral cortex that controls voluntary muscle groups.
A sub program also known as subroutine is a set of instructions set by a coach or individual that is designed to perform a regularly used operation within a program.
STAGES OF LEARNING
1.4 My skill levels in volleyball
A skilled performer in volleyball exhibits the stages of skill acquisition in three stages that are, the cognitive stage, the associative stage and the autonomous stage. Its stage separately identifies the basic or understanding stage of skill learning, intermediate or practice stage of skill learning and the advanced stage at which skills are performed reflexively.
My skill level in volleyball is believed to be at a cognitive level. This is because as a player, I know the skills needed to perform well but cannot always perform the super-high level and play effectively most of the time.
1.5 My weakest skill
My skills in volleyball are at a cognitive level, but I cannot always perform at that level due to some poor skill levels. Spiking is my weakest skill in volleyball and this is simply because my action of jumping to a set is not developed due to my level of timing a jump. To perform better at spiking, drills should be performed to have the key components of the skill remembered.
FACTORS AFFECTING SKILL ACQUISITION
Individual ability to experience in volleyball, improve and learn a motor skill significantly touches their ability...
