Research by Damian Farrow and Sam Robertson
Unlike physical training, skill acquisition does not currently utilise periodisation to plan, monitor and evaluate programs. Development of a skill acquisition periodisation framework would allow for systematic investigation into the acute and longitudinal effectiveness of such interventions. Using the physical training literature as a reference point, a skill-training periodisation frame- work was developed for use in high-performance sport. Previous research undertaken in skill acquisition was used to provide support for the framework.
