Dave Pearson – Head Coach, England Squash Key sections: ■ ■ ■ ■ ■ Introduction Structuring the practice environment The nature and administration of feedback Attentional focus Conclusion INTRODUCTION As active human beings we hardly ever stop moving.

1996), whereas it is more beneficial for higher-skilled performers to experience random practice (Hall et al. 1994). Although these findings are at odds with the contextual interference effect, they can be explained by the performers’ stage of learning and the practice schedule adopted (Guadagnoli et al. 1999). For example, in the early stages of learning, athletes often struggle to understand the movement to be learned (Gentile 1972, 2000). In an attempt to do so, they simplify the required task’s demands by trying to reduce the number of potential moving body parts involved in the skill (Fitts 1964; Bernstein 1967).

The effectiveness of the coach in facilitating the learning of such skilled movements can be enhanced through a more detailed understanding of how athletes learn and how best to structure the environment to support this learning. How people learn to execute skills effectively poses an interesting set of questions, questions that researchers continue to wrestle with in an attempt to illuminate the sometimes misty world of effective coaching. The aim of this chapter is to discuss some of these questions and to illustrate the value to coaches of knowledge about the acquisition of skills.
