Kerwin, David G.
MetadataShow full item record
This paper explained how elite gymnastics coaches develop progressions for learning skills. Irwin contributed the research question, data collection and analysis, and writing the first draft. A conceptual model identifying the key components of progression development was created using content analysis of semi-structured interview transcripts. This research highlighted the need for an interdisciplinary approach to skill development combining coaching science, training theory and biomechanics and formed the theoretical underpinning to the first part of an invited presentation within the coaching symposium at the British Association of Sport and Exercise Sciences annual conference, Loughborough, 2005.
