Transcript of AS1.6 Practice makes perfect

The video - What does it mean to you? Success is the end result Quality vs. Quantity The greatest results are often obtained through quality of training rather than the quantity of training completed.

This is true for many different aspects of life and not just sport training.

(<hrs of quality study rather than >hrs of poor quality study)
Gift buying (a thoughtful gift that is small is often better received than a lot of unthoughtful gifts)
Shoe shopping (A quality pair of shoes will last longer than a pair of cheap shoes)
Friends (Meaningful relationships with few people mean a whole lot more than having a vast number of superficial friends.
etc. Creating Success in Volleyball Moving from novice to pro

Mr Kingston What was necessary for this man to be successful in his chosen sport?
Give examples of qualities in his personality.

What did he know about the skills in boxing when he first entered the boxing club?

How did he learn how to box?

How did he become more proficient in his boxing ability?
Success varies depending on who you ask.

Some peoples definition of success will be different from others.

Peoples definitions of success differ based on what they perceive as being acceptable or obtainable.

E.g. Some students in this classroom will view an "Achieved" grade in an assessment as being successful whereas others may see it as a failure to obtain what they set out to achieve (i.e. an Excellence grade) Quality of Practice The quality of practice refers to whether the practice being conducted is relative to the sport or activity that you are performing

E.g. Your ability to improve your penalty kick in football will not be effective if you are spending your training time completing throw ins. Types of Practice Whole Practice

Massed Practice

Variable Practice

Distributed Practice Amount of Practice The quantity of time allocated to practicing a skill or group of skills.

"Practice makes perfect"

The more practice that is conducted (i.e. more time that is dedicated to learning a skill), the greater chance one has to improve.

The less practice that is conducted (i.e. less time that is dedicated to learning a skill), the less chance one has to improve. Knowledge of tactics and strategies The more you know about the game and how it is played the greater the chances of being successful at that sport.

In relation to the above statement, discuss in small groups the benefit of the following

Offensive play
Defensive play
Professional Sport
Trained vs. untrained
Levels of related fitness Level of motivation People are motivated in different ways according to their age, experience and personality. Motivation is best applied when people are aware of the reasons for their participation and can use these to further strengthen their involvement.

Reasons for being motivated can be having fun, belonging to a group, skill improvement etc.

In your groups identify how you can have fun, belong to a group and improve your skills in a sporting context. Goal setting In order to set a goal you have to know where you are currently and where you want to be.

You have to know your strengths and your weaknesses.

You have to have comparisons in order to understand where you want/need to make improvements.

Do you think priorities are important for goal setting? Why/Why not? Use of the concepts By using the concepts discussed
in this lesson and apply them to your practical lessons in Volleyball, you should experience some level of success. Progression This is the key word for this assessment!

I want you to focus on progressing your Volleyball skills from where you are now to where you want them to be.

I want you to identify your weaknesses and your strengths.

I want your weaknesses to become strengths and your strengths to become stronger. Whole practice Whole practice is probably better known to you as a skill.

This type of practice is where you attempt to become better at a skill by practicing it in its whole form.

Weakness - Volleyball Serve
Practice method used - Whole Practice

Training for this skill would be to complete the whole skill without breaking it down into individual segments. Massed Practice Massed Practice is when you continuously practice a movement over and over.

This method is used to become better at simple skills that are used many times throughout a game and assists in building stamina.

Weakness - Volleyball Block
Training method used - Massed Practice

Training for this skill would be conducted by continuously jumping, aiming to get your hands as high above the net as you can with each jump Variable Practice Variable practice places a player in various scenarios but completing the same task. This is used to simulate real game situations and makes training "real" for the player.

Weakness - The Volleyball Dig
Training Method used - Variable Practice

The coach maybe on one side of the net hitting the ball to the left, right and centre of the player simulating a spike from the players opponents. The player has to get into a position whereby they are able to slow the ball down by digging high into the air. Distributed Practice This type of practice is used whereby a task requires a great deal of effort, skill, concentration etc.

A task maybe very difficult to perform or the player may be poorly motivated so rest periods or other skills or activities are completed between bouts. Skill Related
