SCQF Level 10 (Year 3 Undergraduate)
The teacher of physical activity, the coach of specific techniques, must be able to analyse techniques in terms of mechanical effectiveness and efficiency. Biomechanical analysis of sports techniques builds on previous knowledge and understanding in order to apply analysis to specific movement situations. Indicative content considers video, measurement of force and impulse, computer simulation and quantitative analysis. Building on elements covered in the previous year, and utilising a similar approach, this aspect of the course focuses on group aspects of performance. Likely topics include decision-making in team settings together with a consideration of coherence and cohesion. In addition, conflict management, communication, leadership and social influences will be examined. As before, applied techniques and implications will be identified in relation to the theoretical perspectives examined.
