Abstract:

Sports psychology and team training literature offers a wealth of examples on the development of expert teams, where individual high-performing players are trained to succeed as a group. Compared to many problems where expert teams operate, sports very often have the advantage of clear criteria for success and an increasing amount of data collection on both team and individual performance. As such, effective training techniques for sports teams may offer insights that inform general team training pedagogy, particularly for psychomotor domains such as military operations. Our investigation into this area is exploratory. Here, we examine a few well-documented cases of how assessment and feedback are utilized in the context of sports team training. Given this focus, our work cannot be considered representative of training in any specific sport. However, by comparing between sports, we hope to identify certain qualitative differences in the types of training that are effective for different psychomotor domains that incorporate elements of team dynamics.
