Abstract

The effective use of performance analysis is an essential component of the high performance strategy of elite sports teams (Peters & O’Donoghue, 2013, Performance Analysis of Sport IX. London: Routledge) and Vinson & Peters (in press, Journal of Sports Sciences) have reinforced the need for establishing the validity and reliability of the sub-components of the performance analysis coding template before it can be used to inform the feedback process. The four previous performance analysis papers focussing on wheelchair basketball have however used performance analysis templates developed from the running game to evaluate performance (e.g. Gomez et al., 2014, Journal of Sports Sciences, 32 (11), 1066-1075) without any consideration of their validity, reliability and therefore applicability to the wheelchair game. The aim of this study was to design a valid and reliable performance analysis template for assessing team performance in elite men’s wheelchair basketball. Following University ethical approval and to establish expert validity, three one-hour focus groups were conducted with four male wheelchair basketball coaches, each with over 10 years of elite-level coaching experience. First a list of action variables was developed, then the performance definitions were agreed and video clips cut as agreed examples of each action variables. In total, 115 action variables were agreed and used to create the coding template in SportsCode Elite V10 (SportsTec Inc., Australia). To establish intra- and inter-observer reliability for each variable, one half of a competitive international men’s wheelchair basketball match was analysed by the first author on two occasions and by another experienced performance analyst once. Percentage error tests were utilised to access the reliability of each variable and a 5 percent error score was deemed acceptable (Bland & Altman, 1986, Statistical Methods for Medical Research, 8, 135-160). Intra-observer reliability identified an error score of 0% for 105 of the variables with the other 10 each less than 5% and inter-observer reliability achieved an error score of 0% for 103 variables with the remaining 12 each less than 5%. The study presents a valid and reliable performance analysis template for assessing team performance in elite men’s wheelchair basketball that should be used in future studies in the elite men’s game (e.g. discriminating between successful and unsuccessful teams). Further research is required to establish its suitability for use with different levels of performer and in the women’s game.
