Extracts from this document...


One of the key skills in Gaelic football and one that I have watched this player perform is scoring a Point/Goal. The phases of movement for scoring in Gaelic Football are: 1. Receiving the ball 2. The take off 3. The execution of the shot 4. The overall efficiency The players concentration on getting possession of the ball were overall quite good, she set out to receive the ball and she did this by making her self available and free from her opponent. She did this by being one step ahead of her opponent at all times. She displayed good agility (the power of moving quickly and easily), reaction time (The interval of time between application of a stimulus and detection of a response) and also that she had a good percentage of Type 2b Fast Glycolytic muscle fibres in her legs (these group of muscle fibres tire easily but have a high force and speed of contraction. These factors make them essential in an explosive action such as a short sprint.) After receiving the ball she continued on smoothly to carry out her task as a forward (which is to score) ...read more.


This was not the case for the performer in question. The run for the ball needs to be precise and accurate and this player showed these skills by timing her move to perfection. When she got her hands on the ball she took her solo run which is running with the ball then tapping it from her foot back into her hands, she then took her shot and the outcome was what was expected from a forward which is to score! Reasons why skill levels are high are due to practice and hard work. The type of practice used is Massed practice; this is used when the individual is experienced, older, fitter and more motivated it is used when the task is discrete, brief and quite simple. One area I felt the performer could work on is holding on to the ball when receiving it, when receiving the ball in Gaelic football whether high or low it should be caught with two hands. Preferably it should be received at chest height but this is not always the case and we have to adapt out bodies to suit different situations. ...read more.


She was also able to move quickly of the mark in response to receiving the ball from a fellow team mate. This showed her high level of reaction time, acceleration and power. Her speed on moving off the mark was paced well as she got there in perfect timing; she also portrayed good speed work when scoring before her defender could block her. She showed suppleness when performing the task, it all ran smoothly without mistakes, she didn't hesitate or stumble through out the action. She showed first class coordination after she had received the ball from her team mate; she showed this by making the game look easy the way she just flowed through the movements. This player displayed a good range of balance when she took her shot, because when shooting you are left standing on one leg this requires a good range of balance to stay up right and not fall over. I feel this player had good strength in her core and legs, but her arm strength could be worked on. I found when she caught the ball her grip was weak this could be due to lack of strength in the arm muscles. This could be improved by an action plan. ...read more.
