Description

Coaching in the 21st Century? – A fresh look at Sporting Analysis

Do you believe in luck? Have you blamed or thanked luck for causing an outcome? Then whether you’re a coach, competitor, performance analyst, or someone who simply believes in luck, this is for you.

Sport has always been steeped in superstition and one example is luck, but when did you last take the time to analyse luck? What method did you use and how did you conclude that the outcome was luck? This interactive presentation combines sports psychology with practical analysis and statistical evidence to achieve a more accurate overview of luck and its impact on sport.

David White, author of Superstitionism - The Psychology of Sport, will unlock the mystique surrounding luck by showcasing the UK and Ireland’s premier insight into coaching and performing, without relying on luck as a core belief.

  • Participants will discuss luck's misleading impact on athletes’ psychology and reflect on its influence over how they think, act, and perform.

  • Gain a practical insight of how to distinguish between luck, chance, and probability when conducting performance-related analysis.

  • Measure all perceived benefits against comparable drawbacks of citing luck as the cause of a sporting outcome.

  • Learn how to combine practical models of psychology with competency-based skills, free from any impairment by the illusion of luck.

  • Be intrigued by the prospect of learning new stuff.
