Article
The football goalkeeper position arguably represents a unique role within the team sport. Despite its highly complex skill demands, research on football goalkeeping has only sporadically examined the position within isolated and limited parameters. In particular, there is limited literature on “modern” skill acquisition training methods and approac...
Article
Full-text available
Across sports and movement science, training periodization has been recognized as key for athlete development and performance. While periodization with regard to physiology has a proven history, the structuring and periodization of motor learning and skill development is seemingly less researched and practiced. Despite the existence of numerous the...
Article
In sports like association football, professional teams are increasingly devoting resources to the role-based development of individual athletes and sub-groups. By employing ‘specialist coaches’ into athlete-support structures, clubs aim to facilitate individualised athlete training programs to enhance performance preparation as well as skill learn...
Article
Full-text available
In specialist sports coaching, the type and manner of augmented information that the coach chooses to use in communicating and training with individual athletes can have a significant impact on skill development and performance. Informed by insights from psychology, pedagogy, and sport science, this position paper presents a practitioner-based appr...
Article
The goalkeeper (GK) in association football arguably presents a critical playing position within a modern game that often appears to be highly dynamic, unpredictable, and constantly changing. Because of the privilege in using the hands and FIFA's "back-pass law," the list of GK tasks extends to a wide range of responsibilities in possession of the...
Article
In high-performance sport, a multidisciplinary approach is proposed as essential in providing an effective environment to service all aspects of athlete development and performance. A Department of Methodology (DoM) conceptualisation, based on an ecological dynamics rationale, provides a framework for coaches, sport scientists and support practitio...
Article
Full-text available
The value of talent development programmes, aimed at nurturing children and adolescents into high performance sport, has been widely questioned. However, there seems to be some agreement that the general concept of talent development is not the issue, rather, the problems exist in the design, implementation, and management of these systems. These c...
Article
Full-text available
Sport science has increasingly witnessed use of contemporary ecological approaches to athlete development, preparation, and skill acquisition, providing alternatives to traditional pedagogical approaches. Here we examine an ecological perspective on transferring theory into coaching practice for athlete self-regulation and performance preparation,...
Conference Paper
Full-text available
Providing augmented information (i.e. feedback and instruction) is considered a dominant coaching behaviour (Raya-Castellano et al., 2020). Augmented information is typically delivered concurrently (i.e. during movement performance) or terminally (i.e. after movements) in the form of error correction (Davids et al., 2008) to prescribe footballers '...

Key principle 3 (specificity and generality of practice for enrichment)
Article
Full-text available
This is the third of a four-part series on motor skill acquisition in figure skating. Readers can refer to the reference list to explore topics more deeply.
Article
A major challenge to sport practitioners working across all levels of sport is ensuring that technological platforms are integrated effectively to assist learning along the development pathway. Under the framework of ecological dynamics, we introduce technology as a support opportunity for athletes to learn to become better attuned to, and utilise,...

This is the second of a four-part series on motor skill acquisition in figure skating. Readers can refer to the reference list to explore topics more deeply.
Article
Full-text available
The sub-discipline of motor learning frames understanding of skill performance and practice in sports, relevant for developing talent and enhancing expertise of athletes (Ribeiro et al., 2021). Research in this area has important implications for the professional support work of practitioners such as coaches, trainers and sport scientists (Woods et...
Conference Paper

roviding augmented Information (i.e. feedback & instruction) is considered a dominant coaching behaviour, typically delivered concurrently (i.e. during a movement action) or terminally (i.e. after a movement action) in the form of error correction to prescribe footballers with an optimal movement template. Here, we propose a model to prevent footba...

This is the first of a four-part series on motor skill acquisition in figure skating. Readers can refer to the reference list to explore topics more deeply. We specifically provided hyperlinks to many of the references to make this process easier for coaches.
Article
Abstract Adopting a coaching perspective centred on athlete-environment interaction, this article summarises contemporary skill training literature and theoretical principles based on Nonlinear Pedagogy (NLP) and the Constraints-Led Approach (CLA). Our analysis highlights two main issues: 1) that athletes learn by using information in a performance...
Article
Full-text available
With increasing resources in sports organisations being allocated to the development and preparation of individual athletes and sub-groups with specialist performance roles, the work of coaches, specialist (role) coaches and support staff needs to be functionally and coherently integrated. This integration of sport science support and coaching can...
Article
Stadium noise - created by spectators and fans - plays a critical part in the reality of professional sports. Due to a lack of research on the impact of these auditory cues and multimodal environments on motor performance, it is currently unclear how professional athletes experience and perceive stadium noise and how this potentially affects perfor...
Article
Full-text available
Training approaches and methods in soccer are constantly developing. Consequently, it is important for any soccer coach to regularly evaluate and potentially adopt professional and/or research-supported trends to coaching and training planning. With regard to the question “How is modern soccer goalkeeper training structured?” coaching education has...
Article
Die Periodisierung von Trainings spielt in der Sportwissenschaft eine bedeutende Rolle. Während diese Periodisierung im Rahmen von Physiologie und Belastungssteuerung einen durchaus fortgeschrittenen Wissensstand erreicht hat, ist die Periodisierung des Fertigkeits- oder Techniktrainings eher weniger erforscht und angewandt. Aufbauend auf einem von...
Article
Match warm-ups in association football represent well-respected practice in order to prepare and optimise performance. While the structure of warm-ups is commonly studied from a physiological perspective, the skill and performance training approaches influencing warm-ups prior to major professional football competition appear to be particularly und...
Article
Lob und Kritik gehören zum Anforderungsprofil und damit zu den Kernkompetenzen eines Trainers. Die Art und Weise der Kommunika-tion, die er bei Ansprachen an die Mannschaft, bei Gesprächen mit Spielergruppen oder ein-zelnen Spielern wählt, kann hierbei nicht nur im Wettkampf den Unterschied bedeuten. Auch in den Aufbau-und Leistungsbereichen des Ju...
