What is verbal guidance?

What is manual guidance?

When the coach or another person physically touches the performer to assist them.


Give advantages of visual guidance:

•easy to create a mental picture of what is required
•keeps the performers attention
•can address the whole group at once


Give disadvantages of visual guidance:

•the demonstration could be wrong, therefore the performer may learn the skill incorrectly
•the coach may not be able to show an accurate demonstration
•could take a long time


Give advantages of verbal guidance:

•straight to the point
•quick feedback
Doesn't require a demonstration


Give disadvantages of verbal guidance:

•the performer may not understand what is been said
•not massively useful for a cognitive performer
•hard to create a mental picture without been shown


Give advantages of mechanical/manual guidance:

•reduces risk of injury to the performer
•good for cognitive performers
•can help with any skill


Give an example of where mechanical guidance is used

In trampolining harnesses are often used. This helps the performer get a feel for the task and reduces risk of injury
