Given the challenges in increasing activity levels of the population, an important factor in enhancing lifelong adherence to sport and physical activity are the early sporting experiences of children. To this end, coaching practice needs to be based on a principled application of motor learning theory. Current research using interceptive cricket actions as the task vehicle has demonstrated that movements are tightly coupled to information. These findings provide support for the constraint-led model proposed by Newell (1986) and highlight the need to develop learning approaches that adopt a more hand-off approach than traditional coaching.

Impact and interest:

Citation counts are sourced monthly from Scopus and Web of Science® citation databases.

These databases contain citations from different subsets of available publications and different time periods and thus the citation count from each is usually different. Some works are not in either database and no count is displayed. Scopus includes citations from articles published in 1996 onwards, and Web of Science® generally from 1980 onwards.

Citations counts from the Google Scholar™ indexing service can be viewed at the linked Google Scholar™ search.
