Description:

FIELD OF THE INVENTION

This invention relates generally to the coaching or development of athletes in a given sport or athletic activity, in general, and the game of tennis, in particular, using a computer based and driven Learning-Teaching Platform which contains a separate 1) Skill Development Component and a separate 2) Evaluative and Recordation and Data Reporting Component which function SYNERGISTICALLY together to expeditiously enhance athletic attainment and performance in a manner which is neither speculative or subjective, but rather is both objective and quantifiable. Over the course of history, from the time of Mesopotamia, Sumeria and the other earliest civilizations, through the times of the Greeks and the Romans, and to this current twenty-first century time frame, the training of athletes has been and continues to be an ongoing endeavor in nearly every society. Throughout this recorded history of mankind, such training has displayed various degrees of efficiency, comprehensiveness and systematization. This invention aspires to take the training of athletes to heretofore unexperienced levels of efficiency, comprehensiveness, systematization and quantitative objectivity.

BACKGROUND OF THE INVENTION AND PRIOR ART

The present invention is a highly systematic, methodological process that is the product of over 35 years of sport scientific research and development. It was initially conceived and employed within the context of the sport of tennis. The goal of this invention is to provide a more effective mechanism for teaching athletes in any given sport, as well as the game of tennis, by training them in a much more efficient, systematic and comprehensive manner. In so doing, it relies on computerization in order to provide this heightened degree of precision, efficiency, time conservation as well as objectivity in terms of quantifiable performance and skill development related data. Said data is generated and periodically reported—on a semi annual basis—to those trained by this invention. Over the course of the first 10 years that (SP-B) “Standard Package B” when training tennis players in the Two-Handed “style” of tennis when even (1) Two-Handed P5 “shot” (definition: P5 refers to an “underspin” shot played on the non-dominant backhand side of the body) is utilized, thus by default enabling the use of (SP-A) “Standard Package A” for training tennis players in the Two-Handed “style” of tennis by the users of this invention, and also a disablement of (TSP-B) “T-Standard Package B” in the Totally Two-Handed “style” of tennis when even either (1) One-Handed P4 shot (definition: P4 refers to an “underspin” shot played on the dominant forehand side of the body) is utilized, or (1) One-Handed P5 shot (definition: P5 refers to an “underspin” shot on the non-dominant backhand side of the body) is utilized, thus by default enabling the use of (TSP-A) “T-Standard Package A” for training players in the Totally Two-Handed “style” of tennis by the users of this invention. this invention was utilized, research within a controlled experimental setting determined that it produced roughly 5 times as many champions (tournament winners) and 3 times as much income revenue in the tennis coaching business for the systematic coach using it as compared to those asystematic coaches not using this invention. It also resulted in a student retention rate that was 3 times greater than that of the asystematic coaches not using this invention. It is asserted and maintained herein that said asystematic coaches are “winging it” and thereby develop athletes in a given sport or athletic endeavor, or in one of the (3) “styles” of the sport of tennis (see item #1 below) in particular who are less capable in terms of quantified, objective performance metrics at any given point in time of their training and development. It is asserted that the present invention produces “better players at a faster rate” in a given sport or athletic endeavor, or in one of the (3) “styles” of play in the sport of tennis (see item #1 below) in particular. And therein lies the superiority and advantage of this present invention.

It is widely observed and understood that within the world in which we live, in the twenty-first century, that computerization has been and will continue to be employed in nearly every industry in order for those involved in those industries to be able to work more precisely, effectively and profitably in terms of gross and net revenues generated. It is believed by the inventor of this invention that the field of the coaching and training of athletes should also benefit from this technology. Heretofore, however, computerization has not been widely utilized in sports training methodologies. The prior art includes (2) patent pending tennis teaching systems. These are U.S. Pat. App. No. 20060172270 of Brown, and U.S. Pat. App. No. 20040038761 also of Brown. However, they differ significantly from the present invention in (2) principle ways: 1) neither is computer driven and based and therefore does not benefit from the aforementioned advantages of computerization and 2) each of the above describes a (5) step method of teaching a tennis stroke using what is termed the “EASI system,” which is contrasted to the conventional model for teaching which is termed the “MTR method” which stands for a model based on a) Metaphor, b) Template and c) Rule. The present computer based sports training methodological process is an example of a conventional “MTR” teaching/learning paradigm which the aforementioned No. 20060172270 and aforementioned No. 20040038761 are not by disclosure of their inventor. There is also differences in the present computer based sports training methodological process insofar as No. 20060172270 and No. 20040038761 do not include the following major elements or components which comprise the present invention:

DETAILED DESCRIPTION OF THE INVENTION

The present invention is the product of over 35 years of applied sport scientific research and development. It was initially conceived within the context of training tennis players to play the sport of tennis. For the first time in the history of this sport, all of the “shots” in the (3) “styles” of play within the game of tennis (the One-Handed “style,” which consists of 78 separate “shots,” and the Two-Handed “style,” which consists of 105 separate “shots,” and the Totally Two-Handed “style” of play, which consists of 132 separate “shots”) were identified and enumerated by this invention. This identification and enumeration of said “shots” allows tennis players to be trained comprehensively in any of these (3) “styles” of play (One-Handed Two-Handed, and Totally Two-Handed game) with the goal being to acquire all of the “shots” in a given player's preferred “style” of play (3). Then, those “shots” (5), in all (3) “styles” of play which are deemed “Primary” were identified. They were deemed “Primary” (5) because they are the “shots” from which all the other “shots” in tennis evolve (except for two “shots” that are termed the “Mutant” Shots because they do not exhibit the same essential biomechanical characteristics of any “Primary” Shot). Therefore the (5) Primary Shots (#1—the Topspin Forehand, #2—the Topspin Backhand, #3 the Serve, #4—the Forehand Volley and #5—the Backhand Volley) are taught first, thus establishing their “Primacy.” Those “shots” which evolve out of these “Primary” Shots are termed “Derivative” Shots because they share the same essential biomechanical characteristics as their related “Primary” Shots. There are a total of (125) Derivative Shots in the game of tennis as conceived by this tennis training methodological process. Each of these Primary Shots (5), these Derivative shots (125), and the (2) Mutant Shots are introduced during the training process for either of the (3) “styles” of play (One-Handed, Two-Handed, and Totally Two-Handed) in a predetermined order based on two factors: 1) frequency of usage and 2) the ease or convenience of integration into the entire range of both previously acquired “shots” and those “shots” that are yet to be acquired.

When any Primary Shot, Derivative Shot or Mutant Shot has been introduced via a verbal or “MTR” (Method, Template, Rule) description of said “shot” to a trainee, said “shot” is assigned a “P.”, by the users of this invention, which stands for “Present.” When any of the (3) aforementioned categories of “shots” (Primary, Derivative or Mutant) have been “shaped” through the use of “operant conditioning” principles (definition: a type of learning in which the organism is reinforced for making a certain response in order to increase the probability of that response on the next trial) into a (ROC) “Range of Correctness” (definition: a biomechanical movement sequence which provides for maximal controlled power of a tennis ball) on the biomechanical level, they are assigned a “B.”, by the users of this invention, which stands for “Biomechanically Correct.” A given “shot” is deemed to be (B) when all of the associated (EBP) “Essential Biomechanical Parameters,” which are provided for each “shot” in all (3) “styles” of play (One-Handed, Two-Handed, and Totally Two-Handed) are correctly in place, thus assuring that said “shots” are in the (ROC). When any of the aforementioned (3) types of “shots” (Primary, Derivative or Mutant) are deemed to be appropriately utilized in terms of optimal shot selection (definition: a choice of one “shot” as opposed to any other “shots” which when chosen maximizes the chance of winning a “point” in the game of tennis either immediately or later on during the course of the same point) they are assigned an “A.”, by the users of the invention, which stands for “Appropriately Utilized.” A given “shot” is deemed to be (A) when all of the associated (EUP) “Essential Utilization Parameters,” which are provided for each “shot” in all (3) styles of play (One-Handed, Two-Handed and Totally Two-Handed) are being observed and adhered to when a given trainee chooses to utilize said “shot selection” choice on a consistent basis. When every “shot” in any of the (3) “styles” of play (One-Handed, Two-Handed, and Totally Two-Handed) has attained the status of (P) (B) and (A) then the trainee has necessarily reached an (O.P.) “Overall Percentage” of 100% and is therefore assumed to be a complete, fully developed player in terms of their proficiency on both the (B) Biomechanical and (A) “Shot Selection” levels of this sport. The goal of this invention is to bring said players to the 100% (O.P.) level of at which time their training can be successfully terminated. This invention automatically generates electronically delivered reportage of said indices of (P) (B) (A) and (O.P.) on a semi-annual basis beginning at 6 months and proceeding to 48 Months (4 years), or at such time during this interim that a given trainee has attained the 100% (O.P.) level.

This “shaping” or developmental training of all of the shots in all (3) “styles” of play (One-Handed, Two-Handed and Totally Two-Handed) within the game of tennis is accomplished through the use of a “Sport Scientific Training Methodology” which is comprised of (3) essential pedagogical components: 1) (O.S.) “Optimal Sequencing,” and 2) The “Method of Successive Approximations,” and 3) “The Method of (PP&D) Progressive Pacing and Distancing.” (OS) “Optimal Sequencing” refers to the effective employment of either (BS) “Blocked Sequences” (in which only one shot is “shaped”), or (MS) “Mixed Sequences” (in which at least two “shots” are “shaped”), or (RS) “Random Sequences” (in which numerous shots are “shaped”) and thus brought into the (ROC)—and utilized appropriately in terms of both (B) and (A). The “Method of Successive Approximations” is an “operant conditioning” technique which recognizes and rewards—through verbal feedback—those training “trials” or “repetitions” of a given biomechanical movement sequence entity which come closer and closer to the desired ideal in terms of both the attainment of the (ROC) of a given “shot” and/or it's correct application, thus rendering it (B) Biomechanically Correct, as well as (A) Appropriate Utilized. “The Method of (PP&D) Progressive Pacing and Distancing” refers to both the location from where tennis balls originate in relation to the position of the trainee and the degree of variability (read: difficulty in terms of speed, spin and location) of said balls during ongoing training “trials” or “repetitions” while the trainee strives to attain and then maintain both (B) and (A) for said “shots.” There are (4) “feeding” “drilling” or “playing” positions in (PP&D) beginning with Position A. and proceeding to Position D., with Pos. A. being closer to the trainee and Pos. D. being the furthest away from the trainee at the opposite end of the tennis court, or baseline, as it is properly referred to. As trainees are able to maintain the (ROC), or (B) and continue to demonstrate correct shot selection (A), for a given “shot” or “shots,” then the trainer employing (PP&D) will move progressively further away from the trainee through the aforementioned progression of Positions A-D. Simultaneously, as the (ROC), or (B) and correct shot selection (A) continue to be manifest in the trainee, the trainer will provide the trainee with progressively more challenging training “trial” opportunities in terms of progressively more difficult “trials” in terms of the pace, spin and placement of the tennis ball. The skillful application of (PP&D) can best be summarized by the phrase and practice of (CSFF) which stands for “Closer and Slower to Further and Faster.” In other words, as trainees succeed in maintaining the (ROC), or (B) and the correct “shot” selection (A) for a given “shot” or combination of “shots,” then the trainer must challenge the trainee to develop skills which more closely approximate those which are required to play at the 5.0 N.T.R.P. level. He does so by 1) “forward adjustments” of positioning through the progression of positions A-D as skill levels of trainees rise, and 2) by providing higher variability (read: escalating difficulty levels). (N.T.R.P. stands for National Tennis Rating Program which is a proprietary rating system employed by the U.S.T.A. (United States Tennis Association) and is considered to be in the public domain of usage. In this rating system a 1.0 player is a beginner, and a 7.0 player is a “world class player,” and a 5.0 player is “capable of executing every shot” which is a goal which corresponds directly to the goal of this invention insofar as said invention aspires to bring all trainees to the 100% (O.P.) level in all (3) “styles” of play (One-Handed, Two-Handed or Totally Two-Handed) in the game of tennis.

This invention contains “streaming,” continuous video sequence representations for every “shot” in all (3) “styles” of play in the game of tennis (One-Handed, Two-Handed, and Totally Two-handed), as well as “still frame” video sequence representations for all of the separate (EBP's) and (EUP's) for all of these “shots” in all (3) “styles” of play (One-Handed, Two-Handed or Totally Two-Handed) in the game of tennis. This enables the users of this invention to continually refer to and to study the verbiage contained in all of the (EBP's) and (EUP's) for all of the “shots” in all (3) “styles” of play (One-Handed Two-Handed, and Totally Two-Handed), in the game of tennis while concurrently viewing both aforementioned types of the video representations of said “shots,” and is therefore able to form both a (BG) “Biomechanical Gestalt” and a (UG) “Utilization Gestalt” for all of said “shots” in all (3) “styles” of play (One-Handed, Two-Handed and Totally Two-Handed) in the game of tennis. A (BG) is an internal, mental, visual representation of the (ROC) of said “shot” or “shots” based on an internal mental incorporation of the (EBP's) for said “shot” or “shots.” Similarly, the (UG) is an internal, mental visual representation of the correct utilization (A) of said “shot” or “shots” based on a mental incorporation of the (EUP's) for said “shot” or “shots.” In employing both effective (BG's) and (UG's) a trainer is effectively employing the “3 Modalities of Learning” which have often been identified by educators, experimental psychologists and sport scientists as being necessary to assure the highest degree of skill development on the “neuromuscular” skill development level as well as the appropriate and correct utilization level when all (3) Learning Modalities are employed concurrently. These (3) Modalities are the (1 (V) Visual sense, the 2) (VB) Verbal Sense, and the 3) Kinesthetic sense. By employing all (3) Learning Modalities concurrently, this invention becomes a potent “Learning Teaching Platform” which is capable of both enabling it's users to learn a functional (ROC), or (B) and (A) Appropriate Utilization for each shot in all (3) “styles” of play in the game of tennis (One-Handed, Two-handed and Totally Two-Handed), as well as to be able to teach a correct (ROC) or (B) as well as a functional (A) Appropriate Utilization for each “shot” in all 3 “styles” of play (One-Handed, Two-Handed and Totally Two-Handed) in the game of tennis.

This invention also contains a “drilling” or training section/component that constitutes a regimen whose purpose it is to facilitate the attainment of (P) (B) and (A) for every shot in a given trainees chosen “style” of play in the game of tennis (One-Handed, Two-Handed, or Totally Two-Handed), thus assuring that those trained by this invention will attain the 100% (O.P) level of performance in said chosen “style” of play. The specific Skill Development vehicle (as opposed to an Evaluative, Recordation and Data Reporting Component) which orchestrates the development of the One-Handed game is referred to as 1Ht-PDS, or the “One-Handed Tennis Player Development System.” In addition to the aforementioned (EBP's) and (EUP's) and associated video sequence representations there are also 273 such “DRILLS” for what is also termed “SYSTEM I” which comprises the training regimen for the One-Handed “style” of play. The specific Skill Development vehicle (as opposed to a separate Evaluative, Recordation and Data Reporting Component) which orchestrates the development of the Two-Handed game is referred to as 2Ht-PDS, or “Two-Handed Tennis Player Development System.” In addition to the aforementioned (EBP's) and (EUP's) and associated video sequence representations, there are also 561 such “DRILLS” for what is also termed “SYSTEM 2,” which comprises the training regimen for the Two-Handed “style” of play. The specific Skill Development vehicle (as opposed to an Evaluative, Recordation and Data Reporting Component) which orchestrates the development of the Totally Two-Handed game is referred to as T2Ht-PDS, or “Totally Two-Handed Tennis Player Development System.” In addition to the aforementioned (EBP's) and (EUP's) and associated video sequence representations there are also 789 such “DRILLS” for what is also termed “SYSTEM 3” which comprises the Totally Two-Handed “style” of play. Within each of these (3) “SYSTEMS” there are (SA) Shot Acquisition DRILLS for the incorporation of only one shot at a time on the (B) Biomechanical level. There are (SI) Shot Integration DRILLS for the incorporation of at least (2) shots at a time on the (B) Biomechanical level. And there are (SU) Shot Utilization DRILLS for the incorporation of several shots at a time in terms of both maintaining the previously acquired (B) Biomechanical Correctness as well as concurrently establishing the (A) Appropriate Utilization for every “shot” in a given trainees preferred style of play (One-Handed, Two-Handed, and Totally Two-Handed) in the game of tennis.

This invention also contains a separate Evaluation, Recordation and Data Reporting Component (as opposed to a separate Skill Development Component) that is computer software based and driven. At the onset of training, a baseline level of performance in terms of (P) (B) and (A), as well as the resulting (O.P.) are determined and provided to those being trained by this invention to play tennis in any of the aforementioned (3) “styles” of play. This is termed the (IER) or “Initial Evaluation Report.” Both the number of shots which are (P) (B) A) and (O.P.) as well as the percentage of shots which are (P) (B) (A) and (O.P.) are automatically generated and electronically delivered to those being trained by this invention to play any of the (3) “styles” of the game of tennis. And then at 6 month intervals from 6 months to 48 months (4 years) the same numbers and percentages for (P) (B) (A) and (O.P.) are also automatically generated and electronically delivered to those being trained by this invention to play any of the (3) “styles” of tennis in what is termed a (SER) or “Subsequent Evaluation Report.” At the conclusion of training all of these same numbers and percentages for (P) (B) (A) and (O.P.) are also automatically generated and electronically delivered to those being trained by this invention to play any of the (3) “styles” of the game of tennis in what is termed an (FER) or “Final Evaluation Report.” It is the goal of this invention to elevate all trainees to the 100% (O.P.) level in their given “style” of play (One-Handed, Two-Handed, and Totally Two-handed), indicating that they have no “weaknesses” or deficiencies on either the (B) Biomechanical or (A) Shot Selection levels of performance. They are then, objectively speaking, rather than subjectively speaking, complete and fully developed players with respect to these (2) separate areas of Skill Development (B) and (A). The separate Evaluative, Recordation and Data Reporting vehicle (as opposed to a separate Skill Development Component) which records and electronically delivers said evaluations for the One-Handed game of tennis is referred to as the 1Ht-PES or “One-Handed Tennis Player Evaluation System.” The separate Evaluative, Recordation and Data Reporting vehicle (as opposed to a separate Skill Development Component) which records and electronically delivers said evaluations for the Two-Handed game of tennis is referred to as 2Ht-PES or the “Two-Handed Tennis Player Evaluation System.” The separate Evaluative, Recordation and Data Reporting vehicle (as opposed to a separate Skill Development Component) which records and electronically delivers said evaluations for the Totally Two-Handed game of tennis is referred to as the “Totally Two-Handed Tennis Player Evaluation System.”

This invention also includes automatically generated and electronically delivered (PPI) “Practitioner's Performance Index” “Expert Norms” for both (O.P.) and N.T.R.P. (National Tennis Rating Program). The (PPI) “Expert Norms” refers to the percentages for both (O.P.) and N.T.R.P. that were attained by those trained by the inventor of this invention over a 10 year period in which said inventor trained over 300 trainees while using this invention. This index will allow the users of this invention to better gauge their skill and subsequent progress in using this invention to the preestablished skill of the inventor of this invention as reflected in the “Expert Norms.” Here I am correctly affirming and asserting that the inventor has a very high degree of Skill Development and facility in the usage and application of said invention as a result of acquiring experience and related expertise with said invention over a 35 year period. Those trainer/coaches who are less experienced in the use of this invention can then compare the progress of each of their 1) individual trainees or 2) their entire group of trainees to these preexisting “Expert Norms” previously established by the expert/inventor in the usage of this invention for both the attainment of (O.P.) and with respect to progressively increasing N.T.R.P. levels with the mutually respective goals of attaining the 100% (O.P.) level, and the 5.0 N.T.R.P. level of performance. These reports are automatically generated and delivered electronically to tennis trainees at 6 month intervals beginning at 6 months and terminating at 48 months, or at such time that a given trainee has reached the 100% (O.P.) level. However, it should be noted that when using this invention to train tennis players, it is entirely possible to develop players who exceed the 5.0 N.T.R.P. level while simultaneously attaining the 100% (O.P.) level. The 5.0 N.T.R.P. is a minimally identified level of attainment which is often exceeded by those trained by this invention.

This invention also includes automatically generated and electronically delivered metrics associated with what are termed “Shot Groups,” in what is termed a “t-PES Shot Group Chart.” There are 20 separate Shot Groups in each of the (3) SYSTEMS—SYSTEM 1, SYSTEM 2 and SYSTEM 3. In each case, “shots” are grouped according to 1) the type of spin which they contain (either topspin or underspin) and 2) the part of the tennis court from which they originate (either the baseline, the mid-court or the forecourt). The “t-PES Shot Group Chart” gives the users of this invention a clear and accurate indication at any point in time which “Shots Groups” are more or less developed relative to other “Shots Groups.” Insofar as this invention seeks to develop complete, fully developed and well-balanced tennis players, it is considered optimal and desirable for each of the 20 “Shot Groups” to develop at approximately the same pace and rate, thus indicating that there are few if any discernible weaknesses or shortcomings for a given trainee with respect to the attainment of said complete, balanced and comprehensive game of tennis in terms of the attainment of (P) (B) and (A). This report is also generated automatically and delivered electronically to tennis trainees at 6 month intervals, terminating at 48 months or at such time that said trainee has attained the 100% (O.P.) level which would by default indicate that said trainee 's 20 “Shot Groupings” would not only be exactly the same percentage but would also be at the 100% level as well.

This invention also includes automatically generated and electronically delivered metrics associated with what is termed the “t-PES Offense vs. Defense Balance Chart.” For this index all of the aforementioned “t-PES 20 Shot Groupings” are placed into either an “Offensive Shot Grouping,” or a “Defensive Shot Grouping.” The status of the latter two shot groupings is determined by whether the shots in a particular shot grouping are utilized for primarily “offensive” purposes, or primarily for “defensive” purposes, insofar as all credible experts in this sport must contend that tennis is a proper blending of both of these modalities: offense and defense. The “Offensive Shot Group” consists of t-PES Shot Groups #1, 2, 3, 5, 11, 12, 13, 14, 15, 16, 17, 18, 19, and 20. The “Defensive Shot Grouping” consists of t-PES Shot Groups #'s 4, 6, 7, 8, 9, and 10. Insofar as this invention seeks to develop complete, fully developed and well balanced tennis players, it is considered optimal and desirable for each of these two “t-PES Shot Groupings” to develop at approximately the same pace and rate, thus indicating that there are few if any discernible weaknesses or shortcomings for a given trainee with respect to the attainment of said, complete, fully developed, balanced and comprehensive game of tennis in any of the (3) “styles” of play. This report is also generated automatically and automatically delivered electronically to tennis trainees at 6 month intervals, terminating at 48 months or at such time that said tennis trainee has attained the 100% (O.P.) which would by default indicate that said trainee's “t-PES Offense vs. Defense Balance Chart” would not only be exactly the same percentage in terms of the development of both indices, but would also be at the 100% (O.P.) level as well.

This invention was originally and exclusively a tennis training system. However, it is believed and is now herein asserted that this exact sports training methodological process described above encapsulates a template or paradigm—with each of the foregoing described essential elements and components—that can be logically and methodically extrapolated to and thus applied to any sport of given athletic activity in order to train trainees in said sport or athletic endeavor in a more effective, productive, and less time consuming manner. In sum these essential elements and components are as follows:

1) The establishment of (EBP's) and (EUP's) for every separate and discrete biomechanical movement sequence entity for a given sport or athletic endeavor. 2) a) “streaming” and b) “still frame” video representations accompanied by verbal “voiceovers” of the verbiage contained in said (EBP's) and (EUP's) for each of said biomechanical movement sequence entities for a given sport or athletic endeavor. 3) A “drilling” or training regimen designed to bring all said separate and discrete biomechanical movements into the (ROC), or (B) and to assure that each of said movements sequences are also (A) Appropriately Utilized such that the employment of said movement sequences will result in the greatest likelihood of optimal performance—through “high percentage” utilization choices—in a given sport or athletic endeavor. 4) A sport scientifically based methodology utilizing (OS) Optimal Sequencing, a “3 Mode Methodological Learning Dynamic” and the incorporation of (PP&D) under the umbrella of an “operant conditioning” technical approach featuring the “Method of Successive Approximations.” It should be noted that these (4) aforementioned components when taken together constitute the separate Skill Development Component of this invention, whereas 5) is a separate Evaluative, Recordation and Data Reporting Component that provides those being trained by this invention to play a given sport or athletic endeavor with accurate and objectively derived data concerning the development of the specific skill sets that are necessary to optimize performance in a given sport or athletic endeavor, and which are automatically generated and automatically delivered electronically to those trained by this invention on a semi-annual basis. The elements of this Evaluative, Recordation and Data Delivery Component include but are not limited to objectively derived data for (P) (B) (A) and (O.P.), the “Expert Norms” of a skilled and experienced practitioner/coach to measure specific performance criteria and skill development that are specific to a given sport or athletic endeavor, groupings of related but separate and discrete biomechanical movement sequence entities of a given sport or athletic endeavor that can be measured and compared to one another to assure the overall comprehensiveness of skill development in a given sport or athletic endeavor over a 4 year period, and a grouping of separate and discrete biomechanical movement sequence entities of a given sport or athletic endeavor which when grouped together into (2) sub-groups constitute an “Offensive” grouping and a “Defensive” grouping so that the development of a “balanced,” “well-rounded” set of skills with respect to “offensive” and “defensive” capacities can be facilitated and measure. This multi-faceted objectification of training results and outcomes makes this invention eminently (CUT), that is, “Concrete, Useful and Tangible.” And (6) whereas this invention consists of a) separate Evaluative, Recordation and Data Delivery Component and a b) separate Skill Development Component, these (2) components are designed and intended to function synergistically in order to yield a more productive and efficient training model which also yields objective, concrete and quantifiable data metrics which will thereby validate the greater efficiency and effectiveness of said sport training methodological process.

It is herein held and maintained that the incorporation of said Skill Development Components (as opposed to the Evaluative, Recordation and Data Reporting elements) will (7) result in a higher level of athletic attainment and athletic performance in said sport or athletic endeavor, such that these levels of performance can be accurately and objectively determined and reported electronically at regular 6 month intervals to those being trained by said invention. Said invention then serves to take the evaluation of said performance levels from the realm of the merely speculative and subjective—where it has been for many millenia—to the realm of the concrete and quantifiably objective where it can legitimately and constructively reside in this twenty-first century computer age. Thus, it is “truly an idea whose time has come.”
