Discuss the differences between skill, ability and technique and explain how you would structure practices to enhance these components of fitness.
In this assignment I am going to explain what the differences between skill, ability and technique are and how I would structure practices to help enhance these components of fitness. Also I am going to use sporting examples to help demonstrate the differences between skill, ability and technique.
Skills are developed with practice over time and can take a long time to perfect and “groove”. They are modified by practice and are countless in number and can involve a number of different activities. Skills depend mainly on ability though and are thus underlined by them for without ability there can be no development or existence of skills.
Skills can be classified on many different continuums. These continuums help classify skills on different scales, also some of these continuums can include external factors that affect the way the skill or skills are being performed. For example:
A pass in netball from the GK to the GD would be a nine because it is mainly dominated be external factors that could include the weather the GD position and who is defending the GK and GD.
