Effect of match play on the kinematics of one-handed stationary netball shooting

Journal Article


Abstract


  • The purpose of the study was to identify the effects of match play on the kinematics of one-handed stationary netball shooting performed by 10 highly skilled shooters. The shooting action of each subject was filmed using a 16 mm high speed camera (100 Hz; lateral view) and a VHS video camera (25 Hz; anterior view) before and immediately following participation by the subjects in one of their scheduled State League competition matches. Linear velocities, joint and segmental angles, and amplitudes of segmental movement were derived from smoothed displacement data for each shot. The subjects' shooting accuracy were also quantified during match play via game analysis procedures. Student's t-tests for dependent means showed there was no significant difference (p < 0.05) in the kinematics of one-handed shooting performed by the subjects before and after a competition netball match. It was concluded the shooting technique of this sample of highly skilled shooters was sufficiently automated such that it was not affected by the physical and mental demands of participating in a competition match. ©1996 Teviot Scientific Publications.
