Step 1 – Initial Data Collection
An observation schedule like this will look at the entire range of shots you play in a match. From this we can clearly identify our strengths and development needs.
Having identified which skill/technique we would want to improve we now have to break down the stroke into Preperation, Action and Recovery phases. This makes our shot much easier to analyse and we can then clearly see which subroutine requires improvement.
Now that we have identified what part of the technique requires improvement, we shal now gather data that will help us set goals and identify improvement.
