Cognitive skill development for tennis
Cognitive abilities allow us to process the sensory information we collect.
These include our ability to analyze, evaluate, retain information, recall experiences, make comparisons, and determine action. Although cognitive skills have an innate component, the bulk of cognitive skills are learned. When this development does not occur naturally, cognitive weaknesses are the result. These weaknesses diminish an individual’s capacity to learn and are difficult to correct without specific and appropriate intervention.
Like sensory and motor skills, cognitive skills can be practiced and improved with the right training.
