Expertise in sport: Human adaptations to practice and instruction

By Prof. Mark Williams

In this symposium Prof. Williams examine the role of practice and instruction in the development of expertise in sport. He will highlight some of the important discriminating characteristics between expert and near expert performers, with a particular focus on the development of perceptual-cognitive skills such as anticipation and decision-making. Moreover, with references to deliberate practice theory, he will outline how experts and near experts may be distinguished based on their practice history profiles within their particular domain of expertise. Finally, some of the adaptations that occur as a result of practice are highlighted and implications for practice and instruction are discussed.
