The Relationship Between Match Flow, Momentum and Performance

When you watch a competitive game you often see the game move from a finely balanced contest to one team becoming dominant, or a shift from one performer winning to another taking advantage. In this guide, Alistair Higham introduces the benefits of introducing and coaching momentum into your coaching practice

Many terms are used to describe participants who recognise, respond and react to changing situations within a competition or game. It’s often put down to experience or a natural sense, yet these skills can and should be developed within a coaching programme.

The benefits to participants are that:

  • they develop an appreciation of the demands of the game
  • they learn to make decisions in matches based on the state of the game
  • they can develop their tactical and mental skills.
