The second week of the module, we studied Notional
Analysis of coaching behaviours. Notational Analysis is an affordable
technology which provides feedback to the coach on the advantages and disadvantages
of their session. During the practical we used two different hand notation
tools (see in appendix 2).

The ASU Coaching Instrument and Coaching Behaviour
Scale for Sport. The advantages I found from the ASU coaching instrument tool
was that it is easy too record the results by recording a tally throughout the
session, also making it affordable not costing any specific equipment (James,
2006). It provides immediate feedback to coaches, which allows the coach to
reflect on there session. Although the disadvantages of using the ASU coaching
instrument was that its not 100% accurate for example when recording the data on
paper its hard to time keep, as well as observe what is happening in the
session to keep a tally in the correct box. If there is more than 1 of you using
the tool, I found that there were mixed opinions of when people thought events
happened during the session, as we were entailed to our own opinion. Also, when
conducting the tool, I felt under pressure as I had to keep my eye on the
session all times to get the most accurate results.

the data provided information back to the coach on how their athletes felt
about their relationship towards their coach, (as individuals) which provided individual

 Although the
disadvantages I found using this tool was that it would be more appropriately
used if the athletes were long term as then it would allow the coach to help
them improve their scores i.e. by building a better relationship. Another
disadvantage of this tool was that it should be completed anonymous therefore the
coach has an open mind on which strategies to use to improve their style of
coaching if need be. Overall, I don’t think that I would use this tool for
netball, as I didn’t think that it would benefit any of my players compared to
tools we have used in previous weeks.
