One of the most important variables affecting learning and subsequent performance of a skill is feedback. Feedback involves sensory information resulting from a particular movement. e. sight, hearing, touch), known as intrinsic or inherent feedback. e. e. coordination of joint activity, amount of force produced) often requires experience from the performer to evaluate. A second source of feedback usually comes from an outside source, typically a coach, and is meant to complement the intrinsic feedback.

To ensure this comparison is effective, clear criteria must be established and performance must be viewed from an angle allowing a clear view of all key points or multiple angles. Time delays between performance and assessment should be minimized as should the delays between assessment and the next performance. In addition, the athlete should be involved in the analysis, such that they can improve their error detection and correction mechanisms to assist them with future attempts of the skill, when extrinsic feedback may not be present.

Newer systems allow for digitization of the video image, resulting in the ability to track the movement and actions of every player throughout the entire match (this is further discussed in Chapter 3). This provides a much more detailed analysis of performance and is not limited to specific areas of play. However, as with all computerized video feedback systems, the wealth of data comes with a corresponding increase in time the coach must dedicate in determining and examining the information that is most critical to an improvement in performance.
