Paul Kinnerk, Stephen Harvey, Ciarán MacDonncha & Mark Lyons have reviewed various studies on Game-based Approach in Sports (GBA). The review of the literature on game-oriented learning in competition and team sports shows that the GBA supports the development of athletes in decision-making and tactical creativity. Thanks to Chris Lewit who drew my attention to this article.

Nice drill, posted by Matt Kuzdub. By itself and with some variations, this is also a good exercise to improve decision making and executive functions. By the way we can use it as „Trick the mind“-Drills to improve mental strength.
1. set target on both sides;
2. use targets in different colours (f.e. one red and one white):
a) player announces the target before hitting the ball („red“ or „white“);
b) coach announces the target (colour);
c) player or coach uses animal names for the targets (red=“tiger“; white=“cheetah“)
d) coach or player announces target (colour) and speed or spin (f.e. „red-topspin“ or „red-save“, ….)
e) player or coach announces target (animal) and uses another animal name for spin or ball height (f.e. „snake=flat“, „giraffe= high over the net“), then f.e. „tiger-snake“ or „tiger-giraffe“,….
„Mistakes are the currency of learning.“
Why side-line-coaching does not improve the development of decision making skills and forces choking under pressure behaviour.
