The main purpose of this study was to gain a better understanding of highly influential players in elite soccer. Semi-structured interviews were conducted with ten elite coaches to determine their perceptions of the characteristics, emergence and impact of highly influential players. The interview guide was anchored in coaching literature and leadership theory, and after exploring the interview data in this frame, we decided to label these athletes as cultural architects. The results of the anal...

Wheelchair basketball coaches and researchers have typically relied on box score data and the Comprehensive Basketball Grading System to inform practice, however, these data do not acknowledge how the dynamic perspectives of teams change, vary and adapt during possessions in relation to the outcome of a game. Therefore, this study aimed to identify the key dynamic variables associated with team success in elite men’s wheelchair basketball and explore the impact of each key dynamic variable upon ...

This study aimed to develop a valid and reliable performance analysis template for quantifying team action variables in elite men’s wheelchair basketball. First action variables and operational definitions were identified by the authors and verified by an expert panel of wheelchair basketball coaching staff in order to establish expert validity. A total of 109 action variable were then placed into 17 agreed Categorical Predictor Variable categories. The action variables were then used to develop...

Introduction: Appetite and energy intake may be reduced following high- intensity intermittent exercise (HIIE). Yet, exploring such eating behaviour responses at pre-determined time points post-exercise restricts the eco-logical validity. In addition, the requirement of specialised apparatus questions the effectiveness of many HIIE protocols for public health interventions. Therefore, the purpose of this study was to investigate participant-determined eating behaviour in response to a previously...

This study investigated immunophenotypic differences in intracellular thiol redox state of peripheral blood mononuclear cells (PBMCs) isolated from trained (TR, n=9, mean {plus minus} SD: age 28 {plus minus} 5 years; BMI 23.2 {plus minus} 2.6 kg·m2; VO2max 56.9 {plus minus} 6.1 ml·kg-1·min-1) and recreationally active (RA, n=11, mean {plus minus} SD: age 27 {plus minus} 6 years; BMI 24.2 {plus minus} 3.7 kg·m2; VO2max 45.1 {plus minus} 6.4 ml·kg-1·min-1) participants before and after a maximal a...

Introduction Performance Analysis (PA) has been employed within the coaching process to support the delivery of augmented feedback in a wide range of sports (Hughes & Bartlett, 2015). Through exploring the perceptions of coaches and players towards PA, its impact can be evaluated and areas for improvement highlighted (Bampouras et al., 2012; Wright et al., 2016). Previous research has explored coach and player perceptions of a range of PA provision from evaluation of ten 30-40 minutes feedback s...

The ability to score baskets is the key technical skill that separates winning and losing teams in men’s wheelchair basketball (Gomez, Perez, Molik, Szyman, & Sampaio, 2014). Previous studies have focused specifically on the technical aspects of free-throw shooting (Goosey-Tolfrey, Butterworth, & Morriss, 2002; Malone, Gervais, & Steadward, 2002) with limited research exploring the technical and tactical components of field-goal shooting (Francis, Owen, Molnar, & Peters, 2016). Francis et al.’s ...

Performance Analysis has become an integral part of the coaching process within elite wheelchair basketball, assisting staff with the delivery of augmented feedback (Fliess-Douer et al. 2016). Whilst previous attempts to explore the key determinants of success within wheelchair basketball have identified that stronger teams accumulate a greater number of assists, turnovers, free-throw and field goal shooting attempts (Gomez et al. 2015; Molik et al. 2009), the use of secondary box score data in ...
Purpose Drafting in cycling influences collective behaviour of pelotons. Whilst evidence for collective behaviour in competitive running events exists, it is not clear if this results from energetic savings conferred by drafting. This study modelled the effects of drafting on behavior in elite 10,000 m runners. Methods Using performance data from a men’s elite 10,000 m track running event, computer simulations were constructed using Netlogo 5.1 to test the effects of three different drafting qua...
