ABSTRACT
Effects of a visual-discrimination training program on participants' ability to analyze overarm throwing performances was studied. Also examined was the extent to which transfer occurred in analyzing three related overarm skills (the badminton overhand clear, tennis serve, and volleyball serve) and one unrelated skill (the standing long jump). After the pretest, the training group(n = 13) was shown the visual-discrimination program. The control group (n = 13) received no training. The two-way ANOVA. with repeated measures, showed no significant differences between the groups for any skills on the pretest, but statistically significant differences between groups' posttest scores for all skills, except the standing long jump.
