PINDER, Ross A., RENSHAW, Ian, DAVIDS, Keith and KERHERVÉ, Hugo (2011). Principles for the use of ball projection machines in elite and developmental sport programmes. Sports Medicine, 41 (10), 793-800.Full text not available from this repository.
Use of ball projection machines in the acquisition of interceptive skill has recently been questioned. The use of projection machines in developmental and elite fast ball sports programmes is not a trivial issue, since they play a crucial role in reducing injury incidence in players and coaches. A compelling challenge for sports science is to provide theoretical principles to guide 'how' and 'when' projection machines might be used for acquisition of ball skills and preparation for competition in developmental and elite sport performance programmes. In this article, we propose how principles from an ecological dynamics theoretical framework could be adopted by sports scientists, pedagogues and coaches to underpin the design of interventions, practice and training tasks, including the use of hybrid video-projection technologies. The assessment of representative learning design during practice may provide ways to optimize developmental programmes in fast ball sports and provide information on the principled use of ball projection machines.
