Objectives of the Program

  • To provide web-based technique analysis to the young Manitoba athletes involved in the upcoming National Games programs, as part of an outreach project.
  • The project will include video recording the young athletes performing specific skills during their competitions leading up to the Games, and analyzing the film
  • The coach can also email a video clip of their athlete to our lab web site, we can compare their performance to world class athletes in the sport, and place the video data and the text of the analysis on the web.
  • The video will then be further analyzed to determine how the technique compares to a film illustrating ideal technique, as demonstrated by elite athletes (Canadian, World or Olympic Champions) in the sport.
  • The project will be important to improve the technique of Manitoba athletes, as well as to provide training for coaches to conduct the skill analysis and comparisons with elite performers.
