Firstly we need to gather data on our whole performance. This is an example of a general observation schedule.
Under “skill” we should list the various skills/techniques we wish to gather information on e.g. Serve, dig, spike, volley, block etc. In order to make the exercise valid, the observer must know what successful performance is – this is why we fill in the “success criteria” column. After each shot the observer should place a tally in the successful or unsuccessful box. This will clearly show our strengths and performance development needs.
