Create a draft checklist (in preparation for an assignment)
The checklist should include enough detail so you could make an analysis
of the player or team you may observe.

online! Online search match analysis, statistical analysis of certain sports
Step 2- Think of all the skills involved in the sport. For example:
Volleyball serve- underarm and over arm, dig, smash/spike. Badminton-
backhand serve, forehand/underarm, smash etc.
Step 3- How are you going to monitor if the skill is successful or not?
Could you rate the technique of a skill (good, satisfactory, very good).
How many times they used the skill and was it successful. Think about
how football commentators use match analysis- number of free kicks,
attacking plays, goals, set plays, faults in communication that resulted in a
Step 4- How will you include an area for feedback? At the end (in a
column of your table) or create a space after checklist to analyse findings
Skill Successful Unsuccessful Comment/analysis

Step 5- Aim to complete at least one draft copy, as you will find that you
can use elements from each draft. It is to be easy to understand.
REMEMBER- YOU EITHER CREATE AN OBSERVATION SHEET FOR AN
