Notational Analysis of Sport

Notational analysis is used by coaches and sport scientists to gather objective data on the performance of athletes. Tactics, technique, individual athlete movement and work-rate can all be analysed, enabling scientists, coaches and athletes to learn more about performance and gain a competitive advantage. Systems for notational analysis are becoming increasingly sophisticated, reflecting the demands of scientists in technology. This 2nd edition contains updated information about all the new technology and a review of the latest notational analysis research. Contents: Introduction 1. The need for feedback 2.
