Performance Profiling

What is Performance Profiling
Performance profiling is when a coach or sports psychologist analyzes the performance of the athlete so that they can identify the strengths and weaknesses. There are many benefits to this as it is in depth and can easily identify weakness, so the athlete can improve.
How & Why PP links to Motivation
Involving the athlete in the creation of the performance profile increases intrinsic motivation. On top of having more motivation, the athlete-coach relationship can be enhanced. A sporting example of performance profiling is football. If Rooney wants to find out where he is weaker, he could use performance profiling. This would allow him to analyze his performance with his coach and work out a contingency plan.
Another Sporting example
Benefit 1
The fist benefit to performance profiling, is the fact that the athlete and coach can clearly identify the strengths and weakness of the athletes performance. This is a benefit as it allows the athlete to work with their coach on improving the weakneses. for example if a CM in footballl was weak on his ability to see passes and players runs, then his coach could look at the PP and work with the footballer on this specific skill.
Benefit 2
Another benefit of PP is that it increases motivation in an athlete. PP does this as the athlete can clearly identify their weaknesses, this means that they can easily work toward improving the weakness and turning into a strength. Because the athletes weakness is his vision, he will be motivated to improve. The CM will be able to view how he is performing and how he is improving on his vision. This will keep him motivated as he can see the results and he can have and idea of how long it will take him to achieve this.
Benefit 3
A final benefit of PP is highlighting any differences between the coach and the athletes perception of the athletes performance. This is a benefit because if both the athlete and the coach do a PP they may come up with some differences. This is a benefit as these differences will increase communication between the coach and the athletes, as they have to talk about the differences in the PP's and study if they are strengths or weaknesses
Evidence of summary
Performance Profiling gives an insight into how the player views their sport and their ability in it. Coaches who are not aware of their player's perceptions of their own game, risk losing the interest, focus and motivation of the players to their own development.
Evidence Of Summary
Even though the coach may have to make sacrifices in not working on an area they feel is important, the player may gain more confidence by improving a different attribute that holds more concern for them during performance. This added confidence could have a positive impact on their whole game. By discussing each other's perceptions of the player's ability, the coach can seek to question and remove negative, 'irrational' thinking the player has about their ability.
Describe the next steps
Finally, by breaking down their game, players gain clearer picture of their sport, their abilities and how to work towards improving them. The targets set by the player will provide an on-going motivation to improve in the direction that they have agreed with their coach. The next steps toward making the athlete better is analyzing another performance and making sure to iron out all of the weakness that crops up.
Based on Jim Harvey's speech structures
When using PP it allows the athlete to be more motivated as the athlete feels like they have more control over their own performance and how the can improve. This gives them a greater sense of motivation as it allows them to feel as though they have an input on how their training regime goes and PP also allows them to see the view that the coach has on their performance. seeing the coaches view would have a positive effect on motivation as they would try to work harder if the view was negative, as they would want to work harder to impress the coach.
