Leading authorities within the field provide a comprehensive review of current research and theory on skill acquisition. Potential avenues for future work are highlighted and, where possible, implications for instruction and practice are discussed.Containing full discussion of current and complex issues in motor behaviour and recommendations for effective practice in the field, Skill Acquisition in Sport will be of interest to those involved in movement sciences and motor behaviour work in sport, as well as physical therapy, ergonomics and human factors.
