Abstract

The aim of the present study was to evaluate the effect of practice and augmented feedback on netball goal-shooting performance without restricting the interaction time between the learner and the instructor. Thirty participants were randomly allocated into a control (CON), practice (being provided with KR only; PRA), or practice with augmented feedback group (being provided with KP and KR; AUG), and completed 20 netball goal-shots at pre- and post-practice testing sessions. PRA and AUG participated in 3 consecutive practice sessions, which lasted 20 minutes each. In addition, the AUG group received goal-shooting instructions (verbal cues). The AUG group showed a significantly greater improvement in scoring performance, highlighting the importance of augmented feedback in the acquisition of complex motor skills. The current study provides a bridging step between laboratory motor learning and applied research.
