HSC Core 2 What is different and what support is out there?
What’s Different – Focus Questions Five focus questions down to four Deleted: How does the body respond to aerobic training?-prescreening, fitt, immediate responses How does training affect performance? How can psychology affect performance ? How can nutrition and recovery strategies affect performance? How does the acquisition of skill affect performance?
Focus Question 1 Four ‘learn about’ dot points down to three First dot point no change Second ‘learn about’ dot point includes anaerobic interval training as a method and asks for more analysis for learn to third ‘learn to’ now has reference only to resistance and aerobic not flexibility training Fourth learn about is added from previous syllabus and asks for application of training principles and method and effect on performance
Focus Question 2 Three dot points with minor change in learn to Learn to includes evaluate performance scenarios to determine the appropriate forms of motivation, eg golf versus boxing Podcast-research case studies of athletes from different sports and ascertain the nature of their motivation and the psychological strategies they employ.
Focus Question 3 Four dot points down to three but two dot points deleted-balanced diet and hydration. Recovery strategies added. research recovery strategies to discern their main features and proposed benefits to performance.
Focus Question 4 Five dot points down to four. Dot point on rates of learning deleted but may be used as discussion in above dot points Learn to for characteristics of learner - describe how the characteristics of the learner can influence skill acquisition and the performance of skills the integration of relevant performance elements (decision-making, strategic and tactical development)
Resource Support – Core 2 Data summary 1.Information sheets on Recovery strategies 2.Websites of interest for each focus question 3.Handout from PDHPE in Focus on some of the areas of change and something from each focus question
Resource Support – Core 2 Mindtools and the ask websites
HSC Core 2 Materials A sample unit of work covering elements of the psychology and nutrition and recovery sections of the topic-useful for ideas for programming and highlighting use of graphic organisers Description of activities The athletes are: Damien Daley (Kayaking) Vodcast Kristi Harrower (Basketball) Podcast Mark Paterson (Hockey) Podcast A resource list of useful websites for support materials in relation to psychology and nutrition and recovery
HSC Core 2 Materials Podcast and assessment task FQ1-assess the relevance of the types of training and training methods for a variety of sports by asking questions such as: which types of training are best suited to different sports? which training method(s) would be most appropriate? Why? how would this training affect performance? FQ3-research recovery strategies to discern their main features and proposed benefits to performance
HSC Core 2 Materials Podcast questions 1. Could you briefly give us some background to your participation in the sport of………. (ie. How long you have been playing, significant sporting achievements and your current level of play) 2. To reach the elite level in any sport training is obviously a significant and integral component to performance success.

Depending on the nature of the sport being played, whether it is aerobic or anaerobic, a variety of training methods are employed by coaches with their athletes. Could you outline which methods are incorporated into your training? (Interviewer to draw out whether any of the following methods are utilised - continuous, Fartlek, interval, circuit, flexibility or strength training) Could you explain which training methods you enjoy the most and least?
HSC Core 2 Materials 4. Whether it is to enhance motivation or to manage anxiety, the role of sport psychology is becoming an increasingly important aspect of optimal performance in sport.

Cooling down and rehydrating are common physiological recovery strategies. Could you outline a typical cool down and hydration routine for your sport? Neural strategies such as hydrotherapy and massage as well as tissue damage strategies such as cryotherapy or the use of ice have become recovery methods that have been utilised by many athletes. Do you use these? Why/ why not? Post performance many athletes employ psychological strategies as part of there recovery, for example relaxation sessions. Are these part of your strategy? Why/why not?
