A2 PE Technical Support

  1. 1. A2 PE Technical Support
  2. 2. Learning Objectives  Understand the role of technology in training analysis.  Discuss how technology and sports science can be used for the enhancement and evaluation of sporting performance.  Understand and identify how national agencies support the preparation of elite athletes.
  3. 3. Define the term Biomechanics  The study of the forces, and the effects of those forces on and within the human body and other living organisms
  4. 4. Technology  The key role of technology in sport is in the enhancement and evaluation of sporting performance To help the performer to perfect technique through the use of analysis Refining the playing kit and equipment used to give the performer a competitive edge
  5. 5.  How is technology used in your sport to perfect technique?  How is it used to refine kit and equipment?  Is technology used in any other way in your sport?
  6. 6.  In some sports, technological advances have had such an impact that the rules of the sport have had to be altered and adapted to keep up with these developments.  Does this fit in with the concept of fair play?  Write down any sports where you know this happens!
  7. 7. Define the following terms  Motor skills  Gross Motor Skills  Fine Motor Skills
  8. 8. Define the following terms  Motor skills Actions that involve the movement of muscles in your body  Gross Motor Skills Larger muscle movements involving the arm, leg or feet muscles or the entire body (eg running and jumping)  Fine Motor Skills Smaller muscle actions (e.g. picking things up between thumb and finger)
  9. 9. Underwater treadmills  What are they used for?  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=wpJBXWWt
  10. 10. Training facilities  http://www.eyethree60.co.uk/vt/melwoodliv erpoolfc/liverpool_melwoodlfc.html? ncid=sitevrmelwood010508
  11. 11. Performance Analysis  Sports Science informs coaching through the provision of statistical and video analysis.  Explain the difference between Performance Analysis and Notational Analysis
  12. 12. Performance Analysis  Biomechanics aids analysis of performance by focussing on the finer details of movement by identifying the link between mechanics and anatomy – individual performance  www.dartfish.co.uk  www.siliconcoach.com  http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=csrb-GCUxzg  http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=5OWd8VHIVKQ
  13. 13.  Notational analysis focuses on gross movements or patterns of play within a team – tactics and strategy  www.prozonesports.com  www.amisco.eu
  14. 14.  Motion Analysis – based around force plate technology, performers are asked to perform a skill  This allows coaches to analyse data and advise whether an athlete is efficient in their technique or if they are wasting valuable energy  http://www.youtube.com/watch? v=Wc9Wb9JKpTE
  15. 15.  Complete the case study on Pg 173 – Wayne Rooney!
  16. 16. Sports Science: Three Traditional Areas Sports Science Physiology Psychology Biomechanics
  17. 17. Sports Science has now become more diverse! Sports Science Physiology Psychology Biomechanics Podiatry Nutritionalist Sports Vision
  18. 18. Complete worksheets on National Agencies
  19. 19. The Role of National Agencies  An essential aspect of a performers preparation is the provision of high quality coaching, science and medical support services.  The former East Germany was the front runner in this type of provision for athletes
  20. 20. Five Minute task!  Why do you think most governments now place such a huge emphasis on increasing provision for elite performers?  How do you think this is funded?
  21. 21. The Centralised Model  Elite sport is supported by the state  A central body that oversees the management of elite sport’s programmes  Funding, support and training comes predominantly from the public sector  Can you think of some examples?
  22. 22. The Decentralised Model  No single agency takes control  Higher Education Institutions  Supported financially through scholarship systems  I’ll give you one guess!!!!
  23. 23. Elite Sports Programmes  Target young talented performers - usually aged 14-18 years old  Encouraged to attend regular coaching at satellite training centres/academies/centres of excellence  Do you know any for your sport?  Physical and psychological development  Combine elite sports training and academic studies  Most Olympic champions are now in their early twenties!
  24. 24. Wrighty’s hyperlink of the day!  http://www.uksport.gov.uk/pages/sport_in_ the_uk/
  25. 25. Case Studies (Page 178 – 179)  Read and take notes on the case studies listed below then answer the relevant questions. Case Study 1 – New Elite Case Study 2 – Three National Systems Case study 3 – Australia’s Ace Programme
