ABSTRACT
Background. In this study, we wish to emphasize the importance of communication between coaches and athletes in order to increase athletic performance. If we compare communication to the analog/digital transmission mode, in the past communication was analogical, while at present it is digital - through submodalities of the communication channel. The language of training is more dynamic and is accompanied by a number of mentions based on senses and on the description of the motor act. Aims. To find the favorite communication channel of each athlete. Verbs of action, motion, processes, etc. establish reality more clearly. Neurolinguistic programming has a real arsenal of effective techniques capable of generating rapid changes in the athlete's performance, in increasing performance capacity. Neurolinguistic programming uses ideomotor representations, accompanied by visual, auditory, kinesthetic, tactile, olfactory sensations felt by the athlete to describe certain movements. Methods. Applying a questionnaire by the authors Bandler & Thomson, Garner & Jacobson to the Olympic judo team of Romania. The questionnaire items were classified into three categories: visual, auditory and kinesthetic. The written answers of the athletes allowed to analyze the submodal distinctions of communication and to determine the main communication channel of each athlete. Results. Neurolinguistic programming techniques applied in practice reveal significant differences for auditory sensations in influencing athletic performance p=0.652. There is a significant positive correlation between visual sensations and kinesthetic sensations (r=0.59, df = 23, p<0.01). There is no significant correlation between kinesthetic sensations and olfactory and gustatory sensations. Subjects undergoing a stimulation of visual and auditory channels will have positive effects in the kinesthetic area. Conclusions. It is very important for the technical staff to understand the best way to communicate with each athlete by applying neurolinguistic programming techniques, so that athletes can reach optimal results in major national and international competitions.
