Success in sport depends upon the athlete's ability to develop and perfect a specific set of perceptual, cognitive and motor skills.

This book examines how we learn such skills and, in particular, considers the crucial role of practice and instruction in the process. Leading authorities within the field provide a comprehensive review of current research and theory on skill acquisition. Potential avenues for future work are highlighted and, where possible, implications for instruction and practice are discussed.

Containing full discussion of current and complex issues in motor behaviour and recommendations for effective practice in the field, Skill Acquisition in Sport will be of interest to those involved in movement sciences and motor behaviour work in sport, as well as physical therapy, ergonomics and human factors.

The acquisition of skill is fundamental to human existence and throughout life we are continuously trying to develop new skills and refine existing ones. Success in sport depends upon the athlete's ability to develop and fine-tune a specific set of perceptual, cognitive and motor skills.

Leading authorities within the field provide a comprehensive review of current research and theory on skill acquisition. Potential avenues for future work are highlighted and, where possible, implications for instruction and practice are discussed. Skill Acquisition in Sport will be of interest to those involved in motor behaviour work in the sport and movement sciences, as well as physical therapy, ergonomics and human factors. This book will appeal to students, academics and practitioners, given both its discussion of current and complex issues in motor behaviour and recommendations for effective practice in the field.
