Abstract

In recent years, constraints-led theory has gained popularity within the field
of sports coaching, motor learning and physical education. Briefly, it contends that skill acquisition occurs as a result of the interaction between constraints morphology, emotions, cognition, intentions, environment, task and rules. It is then the teacher or coach’s job to manipulate the constraints to facilitate the emergence of movement patterns and decision making (Chow et al., 2006). Within a constraints-led approach (CLA) there is also an expectation that physical educators need to implement a variety of constraints to help learners search for successful movement solutions, along with an assumption that discovery learning takes place to overcome or adapt to the constraint...
