Skill Acquisition in Sport
Skill Acquisition in Sport gives academics, students, coaches and practitioners the broadest and most scientifically rigorous grounding in the principles and practice of the discipline. Fully revised, updated and restructured, the third edition integrates theory and practice, and provides more material on practical application than ever before.
Divided into four sections—providing instruction and feedback, organizing effective practice, training high-level skills, and the theories and mechanisms underpinning skill acquisition practice—the book covers a full range of key topics, including:
the role of errors and rewards in motor learning
instructions and demonstrations, feedback and biofeedback
imagery in motor learning
constraints-based learning, self-directed learning, and learning from teaching
technique change, creativity training, and visual gaze training
practicing under pressure
the neurophysiology of learning
Based on the latest research, including chapters on emerging topics, and written by a global cast of world-leading experts, Skill Acquisition in Sport is an essential textbook for any kinesiology or sport science student taking skill acquisition, expertise development or motor learning classes.
