Notational Analysis
in Sport Understanding Notational Analysis Performance indicators Definition: "Notational analysis is a procedure that could be used in any discipline that requires assessment and analysis of performance" (Hughes and Franks, 2004:2). Technology used in Notational Analysis "A performance indicator is a selection, or combination, of action variables that aims to define some or all aspects of a performance". Aims & Objectives Understanding Notational Analysis
Technology used in Notational Analysis
- how technology has improved
- how the improvement of technology has enhanced notation analysis Performance Indicators
- Performance Indicators I analysed Key findings There many different types of technology used when notating sport. Different types of technology are used depending on the sport being notated. Technology has improved over the years and this has helped to enhance notational analysis in sport and furthermore helped coaches to analyse teams/players. Video technology Video technology is the most common form of notational analysis and has the biggest influence on coaches observation progress. “Video technology has significantly influenced training methods mainly because it’s relatively low cost, accessibility and portability had already made it the most popular technology among coaches in many sporting events” (Hughes and Franks, 2004:41). (Hughes and Franks, 2004:2) performance indicators used Spain vs Japan:

Successful & unsuccessful passes
Shooting opportunities created Key findings: Successful & Unsuccessful passes, and chances created Here are the statistics collected from the first 10 minutes of the Spain vs Japan match in the Olympics. Spain passing statistics: Spain shooting chances statistics: Japan passing statistics: Japan shooting chances statistics: Spain & Japans Stats compared: Key findings linked to coaching process Coaching process Key factors: Observation, Analysis, Evaluation, Feedback & Planning A study by Franks and Miller (1986) showed that soccer coaches could only recollect 30 per cent of the main key factors that determined a successful performance during a single match. Conclusion From this presentation, we can see the key factors of notational analysis and the effect it has on coaches and the coaching process. Technology plays a huge role in the efficiency of notational analysis and performance indicators help a coach focus on certain aspects of a player/teams performance, this leads on to linking notational analysis to the coaching process. Spain vs Japan: Understanding the stats: Spain had dominant possession over the first 10 minutes with a total of 134 successful passes, 15 unsuccessful passes and 1 shooting opportunity. Japan were not so dominant and spent a lot of the first 10 minutes chasing the ball, the finished the first 10 minutes with 24 successful passes, 12 unsuccessful passes and 1 shooting opportunity. although Spain were dominant in the first 10 minutes of the match and made a lot more successful passes they still only created the same amount of shooting opportunities as Japan. This can be determined on the tactics both teams inherited or the behavioral aspect of the players. References Burkett, B. (2010) SPORT MECHANICS for COACHES. (Third ed.)
