Major factors affecting skill learning:
These are medical and illness related factors:
Colds and flu – cause a shortness of breath and feelings of fatigue
Asthma – affects breathing if not properly controlled
Hayfever – causes your nose to run and makes you sneeze and cough, affecting your breathing
Fatigue – not having enough rest or overdoing things can cause you to feel permanently tired
Lack of sleep – not enough sleep means you can’t concentrate properly and feel weak and tired
Physical ability – your training, fitness and skill levels will all impact on your performance
These are factors related to the way you are thinking and your state of mind
Mental preparation – relaxation techniques and imagery can help prepare the athlete for competition
Mental ability – your ability to concentrate and make good decisions
Experience – a more experienced competitor will know how to prepare themselves mentally
These are things largely beyond our control:
Environment – the weather can affect your performance either positively or negatively. For example a good wind will improve a sailors performance but may impair a tennis players performance
... Describe and ascertain which psychological factors are impacting on the athlete’s performance. The major aspects of psychology that affect performance are motivation and anxiety. ... arousal. Athletes may perform differently in sporting activities, as the ability of the mind generates thought patterns, influences emotions, stimulates or ...
Equipment – better equipment will help your performance, but even then sometimes equipment can go wrong!
Technology – the use of technology in sport is increasing with the use of better equipment and video and computer technology for technique analysis
Other players – an opponent’s or team mates performance can have an effect on our own. For example a team mate performing well may inspire us to do the same
Officials – a poor decision from an umpire or referee can either spur us on to perform better or make us think there is no point trying.
Types of practice:
The types of practice you chooses all depend on the skill you wish to learn. I have picked trapping and passing and so you will do drills to help you learn that skill better and with practice you will be able to do the skill with ease. I do not play futsal and so I have only learned on drill to help me learn this skill but the skill its self is rather easy and this drill helped me learn it faster then I normally would.
Okay, first off all you need for this drill is a ball, 2 HPE cones and a friend. Place the cones about 5 meters apart from each other and then pass the ball to your friend on the other side of them. He should trap the ball and then pass back to you. See how long you can keep it going before you pass outside the cones or mess up.
Feed back and skill learning
positive feedback is always better then negative feedback and let’s be honest, no one likes negative feedback. Don’t ever underestimate the power of positive feedback. We are quick to point out to someone when they make a mistake. Sometimes we forget to acknowledge them when they do something right. Giving positive feedback can be a powerful tool for motivation.
Passing and trapping are two of the most fundamentals skills in soccer. They are also the most used skills in futsal. Nothing happens without one of these. So it makes sense that we should acquire the proper technique to become great futsal players.
Swimming is a skill that everyone should learn Have you ever turned down an offer to go to a water park, or to swim at a beach merely because you couldn’t swim? The twinge of regret of not learning how to swim will always surface from time to time in these situations. Why should you learn how to swim? There are three reasons why you should learn to swim; it can benefit you to be, safe, healthy and ...
*Steps to improve you’re passing and trapping. **
1. **Plant leg position*:
Place your plant leg about a foot away from the ball.
2. Ankle Position*:**
Keep your ankle locked. Unlike shooting, passing requires that you keep your toes up parallel to the ground. No more balls going over your foot.
3. **Knee Position:**
Both your plant knee and your passing knee should be slightly bent. This will ensure that you have good balance.
4. **Body Position*:
Keep your knee and body over the ball. This will ensure that the pass will stay on the ground. If you lean back the ball go up in the air.
Mental rehearsal involves imagined, mental practice of performing a task as opposed to actual practice. That is, when engaging in mental rehearsal, one imagines performing without having to actually do anything. As the saying goes, “Practice makes perfect.” Yes, practice can cause improvement, but “perfect practice” can lead to better results than practice full of failures.
Because mental practice is perfect practice, it is also a confidence-booster. Experiencing success increases confidence, even if that experience is imagined. Basketball fans recognize the old cliché that goes something like, “Free throw shooting is 90% mental, 10% physical.” it’s true that a major determinant of a free throw shooter’s success is his or her mental activity before taking a shot and through the process of shooting (I’m not sure about those percentages though).
Focus and concentration are very helpful for any sport you are playing.
1.The Cognitive Stage
You learn what is needed to perform the skill, As the cognitive stage is exploratory and the beginner will make a large number of errors.
2. The Associative Stage
Once the learners have understood what is required, they must practice to become more familiar with the skill.
This assignment will define and analyse the need for a chosen service improvement within the pathway of mental health, as well as evaluating the suggested service. Demonstrating how this service can inform and benefit integrated practice, discussing the ways in which the agency’s statutory obligations and responsibilities impact on both individual and group decision making. The chosen service ...
3. The Autonomous Stage
During the autonomous stage of skill learning the skill becomes much easier to perform and the player’s level of anxiety is reduced.
