Science based or arbitrariness

There is a very exciting discussion in the Facebook Group Tennis.Haus about the review on studies about the game-based approach (GBA). This ranges from full approval to the GBA to the defense of the technology-oriented approach. Striking are in the debate but the nuances. After that, that’s just good for the athletes, what works. Even if scientific knowledge is completely neglected.

I am very divided. It certainly seems presumptuous to question the training practice of successful coaches. On the other hand, I am aware that numerous factors are responsible for the athlets success. Methods and didactics of tennis training are only one component among many. But would’nt it be more responsible to the players, if such successful coaches would coach to their obvious strengths even more evidence-based? The following is my answer on the discussion on Tennis.Haus.

„The thing is that you can become a very good tennis player if your coaches are strictly orientated towards an ideal technique and continuous technique corrections are elementary components of their training. Just like one of the most creative players of his time, Björn Borg said: Science based or arbitrariness weiterlesen

Game based approach – a review

Paul Kinnerk, Stephen Harvey, Ciarán MacDonncha & Mark Lyons haben sich einen Überblick verschafft über verschiedene Studien zum Spielorientierten Lernen im Sport (GBA – game-based-approach). Die Überprüfung der Literatur zum spielorientierten Lernen  im Wettkampf- und Mannschaftssport zeige, dass die  GBA in der Entwicklung der Sportler in Entscheidungsfindung und taktischer Kreativität unterstützt. Dank an Chris Lewit, der mich auf diesen Artikel aufmerksam gemacht hat.

Zeit verlieren, um Zeit zu gewinnen

In dem Kapitel „Die psychische Uhr“ Goldene Stunde | Kirche im WDRbeschreibt Robert Levine in seinem Buch „Landkarten der Zeit“ ein Phänomen der Zeitwahrnehmung bei Spitzensportlern: „Moderne westliche Athleten sprechen in ihren eigenen Zen-ähnlichen Begriffen über die Zeitausdehnung. Tennisstar Jimmy Connors hat Situationen beschrieben, in denen sein Spiel eine, wie er fühlte, transzendente >Zone> erreicht hatte. In diesen Momenten, so erinnert er sich, wirkte der Ball riesig, als er über das Netz kam, und schien in Zeitlupe zu schweben. Zeit verlieren, um Zeit zu gewinnen weiterlesen

Talk talk talk – not so much

„Tennistraining ist häufig davon bestimmt, dass der Coach redet. Eines der Themen von Lernen ist jedoch, dass das Verhältnis von Reden zu Zuhören und Beobachten sich so ändern muss, dass von Coaches deutlich weniger geredet und viel mehr zugehört werden muss“.

„Tennis practice is often about the talking coach, but one of the topics of learning is that the ratio of talking to listening and watching needs to change so much that coaches need to talk less and listen much more“.
