Although, a large body of literature exists in football alone, which highlights patterns of play in successful and unsuccessful teams (Bate, 1988; Hughes, Robertson & Nicholson, 1989; Harris & Reilly, 1988; Lewis & Hughes, 1988), systematic research into the effective use
of this information in the form of video analysis feedback remains unexamined. Specifically, the psychological impact upon players receiving this video feedback in terms of its perceived usefulness, cognitive affects and psychosocial affects. Therefore, the present paper examines the perceptions
of professional youth footballers (N=10), which had received video feedback sessions to reflect on their own performances and the performances of the team. In particular focusing upon the psychological impact of the video feedback sessions. The results suggested that video analysis sessions
can be a very powerful tool to use with players to increase their knowledge and understanding of the game, however the impacts of such sessions are beyond the simple provision of information. Therefore, coaches should be aware on the balance of the feedback (positive/negative), whist being
mindful of individual differences in the players. For example, some players may find negative examples harder to cope with than others and their confidence may be negatively affected. Therefore, gaining individual players feedback from the sessions is important to address any negative feelings
of the players to prevent any long-term problems.
