Introduction

Word Count: 1,094 "Review the classification of skills to include the difference between individual, coactive and interactive skills." Skills can be put into different categories depending on certain characteristics. They can be classified according to: * Size of movement * Pace * Environment * Components * Precision Skills are broken down into continuums which define skills more specifically: * Gross/Fine Continuum * Open/Closed Continuum * The Pacing Continuum * Continuous/Serial/Discrete Continuum Each continuum defines what type of skill is needed in respect to the overall skill you are trying to perform and also the difference in skill according to the environment you are in, for example passing in football with no pressure is a different skill to passing a football with pressure, this is a very basic example and the skill can vary for many different reasons. Gross/Fine Continuum: Gross Fine These are very broad movements and involve large muscle groups, for example shot putt. Most Gross skills involve walking, jumping and running. These are very precise movements and involve small muscle groups, for example playing a shot in snooker; generally Fine skills involve good levels of hand-eye co-ordination. ...read more.

be broken down and learned separately but only as a whole as the skills are linked to closely together Low Organisation skills are simple and require little attention, the skill can be broken down into simpler stages and learnt as separate stages, an example of this is passing a football. Whole/Part Training Whole Part Whole training is training of movements or actions that are trained in whole parts and are not broken down into smaller sections when being learnt, an example of this is jogging or running, you would learn this in one fluent movement. Part training is when the movements or actions are broken down into individual sections to help practice in separate parts to make the learning easier the parts are then put together and practiced as a whole, examples of this would include a pass in football or a serve in tennis. Serial/Discrete/Continuous Serial skills are when a group of discrete skills are strung together to make a longer more complex overall movement, the main example of this would be the triple jump in athletics, starting with a hope then skip then jump, each of which are discrete skills. ...read more.

Conclusion

Interactive skills are normally open and externally paced skills. Conclusion Why do Coaches Classify Sports? The classification of sports is important to coaches as it helps analyse performances, it helps manage practice, as it makes coaches more aware to what type of skill is needed and is involved in that particular position or sport and helps base the training around that particular skill. The classification of skill allows obvious and specific improvement points and so helps an athletes overall performance both in training and competition. Advantages * Allows to train specific parts of skills and improve certain aspects of an athletes game * Allows coaches to identify weaknesses in certain skills * Allows better analyse of players performances Disadvantages * Can make training to repetitive in order to improve a specific skill * Can make coaches over critical of players performances based upon certain skills * Can make players to specific to a certain position Hayden Green Classification of Skill 5/12/2007 - 1 - ...read more.
