Simple Rating System for Your Practice Results
Here is a simple rating system you may use when evaluating your practice results, especially when you are focused a skill or quality in the body or stroke that is not easily measured in a more objective way.
You may use it in your discussions with your coach.
- 1 Star (♦) – disappointing – below my standard
- 2 Star (♦♦) – acceptable – at about the standard I have set for myself
- 3 Star (♦♦♦) – marvelous – above the standard I have set for myself
When your performance is at 1 star for more than 50% of the time consider lowering the complexity of the task in order to create a more suitable challenge level for your current neurological abilities.
When your performance is at 2 Star for more than 60% to 80% of the time, keep going. This is good imprinting work. If it is above 80% then you should consider raising your standard for quality, or raising the complexity of the task.
When your performance is at 3 Star for more than 30% of the time (Good Job!) you should consider increasing the complexity of your task.
