Performance Improvement Programme

Extracts from this document...

Introduction

Performance Improvement Programme This programme involves improving a certain skill in a chosen sport. I will have to identify a skill then work on an improving programme to improve at the skill. This programme will include a timetable for practise and furthering my education on this skill by researching it on the Internet. I will also have to be assessed before I start the training and after the training to see how much I have improved, if I have. For this programme I am going to pick a closed skill that is the same every time. By picking a closed skill it will be easier to obtain better improvements because I will be repeating the same shot over and over throughout the course of a training session. This will be my forehand shot in table tennis. I feel that this is an important shot in the game and by improving this skill it will make me a better player when up against an enhanced opposition. Research Physical fitness is an important factor for a successful footwork. A satisfactory strength on both legs helps the player to move quickly from side to side and take the best position for the next stroke. ...read more.

The Programme Monday - I will practice for forty-five minutes against another player. I will repeat my skill numerous amounts of times and use the skill in matches to assess how well I can implicate it when playing. Wednesday - My practise will last for one hour and it will involve playing table tennis against an opposing player and practising my game play and my forehand shots. Thursday - I will train on my fitness for one hour and thirty minutes. Improving my fitness will help when having to train for long periods and will also help Improve my reflexes when playing. During this training I will also be stretching, helping my durability improve. Sunday - One hour of playing a physical sport. This will again improve my fitness and my reflexes for my game. It will also help on co-ordination for footwork and help in being able to adapt when faced again different types of shpts. Now that I have drawn up a plan I will stick to this plan for three weeks and make sure that I do everything I have stated in the plan. Log Week 1 Monday - I trained at improving the forehand but come across difficulties when trying to play the shot as pace because the ball would sometimes travel to far and not hit the other end of the table. ...read more.

Conclusion

The facilities that I used to do my training were a mixture of different places. It included my school gym on Mondays in my Physical education lessons. I used the schools table tennis tables and played for one hour each week using the facilities that my school offers. I also made regular visits to my local leisure centre on Wednesday nights to play my table tennis and I also used a local all weather outdoors training centre on Thursday nights to practise on my fitness. To motivate myself was basically simple. I am a sporting person and so I enjoy playing sports, which means I wanted to participate, in the performance-improving programme. Also I attended regular sessions with a friend who also plays table tennis and motivates himself. Whenever I asked to play he would be very wiling to attend sessions with me making the programme a lot easier. Overall I feel that I have worked very hard and that the chosen skill hat I have been working on has improved greatly and I feel a better player. I also feel confident when playing and now use the fore hand to attack and defend. I am able to play top-spin shots and am able to play these shots all over the other side of the table making it very difficult for the opposition. Zak Wooster ...read more.
