Instructions
This assignment will initiate the Final Project (WK8) process.
Read the Final Project Instructions, located in the Week 8: Final Project (wk8) Assignment area before you choose a movement pattern within a sport.
Begin by selecting a specific, dynamic, movement pattern in a sport.
For example… A volleyball spike, Basketball jump shot, Slap shot, Soccer Dribble, Breast Stroke, High Jump, Football or Rugby Tackle, etc.
This will be the focus of your final project. You will be expected to locate a novice subject (person) to use in your final project to compare to an expert performing the movement.
Two Subjects – 1, Expert/Pro and 2, Novice/Beginner.Keep this in mind as you choose your Movement Pattern.

You may NOT CHOOSE: Any weight lifting activity, including Olympic Weight lifting events. (We will work with these events as a class) It must be a dynamic sport movement.
National Governing Bodies, specifically from other countries where government dollars support athlete training for Olympic events, provide research into proper performance and biomechanics of a specific movement pattern. Therefore, Olympic events and movements within those events are easily researched and a plethora of information can be found regarding all types of sport specific movements. Be creative and choose a movement that is fun and allows for a broad understanding of Sport Biomechanics.
Team USA, http://www.teamusa.org , is a great place to start a search for an event and movement.
Select “Sports” and choose “Summer”, “Winter”, or “U.S. Paralympics” to discover a broad range of sports and events.

Final Project should include:
I. Introduction
Within the introduction inform the audience (your instructor) of the purpose of your paper and provide a summary of what topics you will discuss, using the outline provided below. Your introduction should be 3 – 4 paragraphs consisting of 3- 5 sentences each.
A. Identify selected and approved specific and dynamic movement pattern within a sport skill.
For example… A volleyball spike, Basketball jump shot, Slap Shot, Soccer Dribble, Breast Stroke, High Jump, etc
You may NOT CHOOSE: Any weight lifting activity, including Olympic Weight lifting events. It must be a dynamic sport movement.
B. Provide a brief history of the sport and your chosen movement pattern.
C. Explain the intentions of this paper and provide your audience with direction.
II. Provide a detailed descriiption of how to perform the movement correctly.
This is to be determined by researching how to do it properly, not using your personal experience. Correct movements must be described using proper industry and biomechanical terms. This correct movement should be showcased in the movement of your first subject – the Expert/Professional.
Peer reviewed journal research will be conducted on how to perform the movement and will be your primary sources for this project. Videos and magazine/website articles are supplementary sources and are usually the result of the research articles.
How to perform the movement properly will come from industry leaders. For example, there are videos on how to dive correctly produced by Stanford Diving, MLB will produce videos on how to hit a baseball, WNBA will produce instructional videos on a jump shot. USA Volleyball or the IFVB will produce lectures and videos on proper spiking form. YouTube videos or other videos from the Internet can be used to assist you with this portion of the project as long as they are from an industry leader in the sport. Reminder: these videos may not break down a movement into all of the expected biomechanical elements, you must do this. * See weekly Quiz terms for expected elements of discussion.
*** If you have trouble accessing research articles and/or text books through our library – not a simple Internet search – let your Instructor know. They will help you contact the library for assistance with journals we currently do not have access to. *** If you cannot find 1-3 articles on your movement, it may be too specific and you may want to look for another movement in a different sport or within the same sport.
III. Identify and describe your two subjects and define and describe your data gathering methods.
A. Identify/Describe the Expert/Pro Subject
In this area explain how and why you chose your Expert/Pro Subject for this project.
B. Identify/Describe the Novice/Beginner Subject
In this area explain how and why you chose your Novice/Beginner Subject for this project.
Your Novice/Beginner subject can be an athlete from another sport who wants to learn this movement, or an amateur in the sport you are observing.
C. Define and Describe your data gathering methods
Use the week 6 discussion and the week 7 assignment feedback to complete this section.
IV. Biomechanical Analysis, your Expert/Pro & your Novice/Beginner performing the movement.
Hint: Describe the movements you observed in biomechanical terms (see weekly quizzes for expected terms).
A. Video or Photos of Expert/Pro
See Assignment Week 6 for details on Video and Photo requirements.
B. Video or Photos of Novice/Beginner
See Assignment Week 6 for details on Video and Photo requirements.
C. Biomechanical Analysis of Expert/Pro
1-3 Paragrpahs explaining your CAC analysis and directing your audience to your completed CAC*.

Part Two Chapter 5, Specifically 5.4 Kinesological analysis of Sports Movements & 5.4.3 The Analysis Chart, Part Two Chapter 8, Specifically 8.2 Technique Assessment Models and their Limitations in Feedback & Figure 8.6 Coaching Analysis Chart.
*Direct your audience to your final project movement specific, completed Novice Beginner, CAC. You created the template in week 6 discussion and week 7’s Assignment. This Document should be submitted as a unique document titled: YOURNAME_CAC_MOVEMENT PATTERN_CourseSection_Date (It can be in the format that you used for the week 6 Discussion and week 7 submission.) You will need one document for this analysis.
D. Biomechanical Analysis of Novice/Beginner
1-3 Paragrpahs explaining your CAC analysis and directing your audience to your completed CAC*.
See SPHE324-4 Bartlett, Roger. 2002. Sports Biomechanics : Reducing Injury and Improving Performance. Part Two Chapter 5, Specifically 5.4 Kinesological analysis of Sports Movements & 5.4.3 The Analysis Chart, Part Two Chapter 8, Specifically 8.2 Technique Assessment Models and their Limitations in Feedback & Figure 8.6 Coaching Analysis Chart.
*Direct your audience to your final project movement specific, completed, Novice/Beginner CAC. You created the template in week 6 discussion and week 7’s Assignment. This Document should be submitted as a unique document titled: YOURNAME_CAC_MOVEMENT PATTERN_CourseSection_Date (It can be in the format that you used for the week 6 Discussion and week 7 submission.) You will need one document for this analysis.
V. Compare and Contrast your Novice/Beginner to the Expert/Pro
After observing the Novice/Beginner compare and contrast their performance, in biomechanical terms, with that of the industry standard of performance and that of your Expert/Pro (see ESPN’s Sports Science guy videos for examples of a breakdown analysis).
A. Movement & Performance Similarities
B. Movement & Performance Differences
C. Feedback to Improve Performance of Novice/Beginner subject
D. Feedback to Prevent Injury of Novice/Beginner subject
Recommendations for sport specific improvements must be within your area of expertise. Recommendations are only applicable if they come from industry trained professionals. For example, in USA volleyball there are three levels of coaching certification. Only coaches with an IMPACT training CAP I certification are approved as “knowing the basic instructional methods” as recommended by USA volleyball. If you do not currently have the necessary experience to allow for specific coaching/feedback you can direct your subject to the industry standards but refrain from offering coaching.
VI. Conclusion
Summarize the main topics of your paper and remind the audience (your instructor) of the purpose of your paper. In 1 – 3 paragraphs consisting of 3- 5 sentences each. Do not add any additional information or new ideas to your conclusion.
Formatting
Your paper should have at least 1-3 peer reviewed journal references and 3-5 outside sources HINT: These can and should include your required readings that should include your required readings, to assist with your arguments (must be reputable sources for your sport). Please see descriiption in class for rubric.
Plagiarism in any form is not acceptable. Plagiarism is subject to current APUS policies.
Gather the data and place it in your own words… cite the ideas that come from others (Johnson, 2016). If it is a “direct quotation, and I suggest you use these sparingly” (para.3), be sure to place a page or paragraph number directly after the quotation (Johnson, 2016). “If the direct quote is your whole sentence, then apply the page or paragraph number, for a web page, at the end of the in text citation after the year” (Johnson, 2016, p.5). Periods go after the in text citation.
Your required course paper should be between 8-10 pages in length. The title page or reference pages are not included in this number. The paper should be presented in APA format and double spaced.
You must have approval of your Dynamic Sport Specific Movement Pattern (topic) by your Instructor prior to beginning this assignment.
