Soccer goalkeeping, task analysis, video feedback, video modeling


Several studies have evaluated the effects of consequent and antecedent procedures on athletic performance, including video modeling plus video feedback (VM+VF) as a treatment package. Although the effects of the VF consequent component have been well researched, relatively scant literature exists assessing the effectiveness of the VM component as an antecedent strategy. Additionally, these interventions have not been studied to improve goalkeeping skills of soccer players. Therefore, this study used a multiple baseline across behaviors to compare the effects of VM to the VM+VF to train goalkeeper skills to soccer players. Task analyses were established for three goal keeping skills to teach to two 9-year-old boys using VM, followed by VM+VF as necessary. Results show that, although VM had some effect on performance compared to baseline, VM+VF was required for the robust outcomes necessary for proficient performance of goalkeeper skills. Social Validity data further support the use of VM+VF as a preferred intervention by the players. Future research should compare the effects of VM and VF as stand alone interventions and assess their effects across different sport skills.
