Monitoring stick speed and ball control in field hockey drills using a stick-mounted inertial accelerometer
MetadataShow full item record
Field hockey is a stick based sport where stick speed and ball control are primary skills. A stick mounted accelerometer was used to record hit events and the timing between them. The objective was to assess skill level using inter-hit timing in single-player drills. Eleven novice and nine state ranked male players performed three drills on artificial turf using both forehand and reverse stick hits at maximum stick speed. A 44g stick-mounted 3-axis accelerometer was used to distinguish between forehand and reverse stick ball strikes ...
