Notation analysis of skill expertise differences in netball
Abstract:Notation analysis was used to assess decision making capability of expert and developmental athletes during 12 netball matches. Analysis of variance with repeated measures demonstrated experts produced a greater percentage of successful pass outcomes than the developmental athletes. High defensive pressure and higher decision making complexity negatively affected performance. These results suggest experts in comparison to their younger counterparts have developed the required skills to manage the defensive pressure and decision making complexity routinely experienced during game play, and as a result are able to more effectively select and execute the most appropriate passing option.
