Throughout these 2 clips from two different teams, we see quite similar ways of creating communication within game play. Essentially in the first clip we are focusing on both verbal and non-verbal communication. If we draw our attention to SH (Musk) we see that she primarily uses verbal communication when in game play. She is constantly calling out her team mates names to let them know that she is there and ready to receive the ball. As well she uses this verbal aspect to swap positions with other players as she is attentive to the space that is needed to receive a pass. Additionally, SH within this clip uses her cognition to make the effort to create the space so that the game is able to flow and that her team is at an advantage. On the other end of the spectrum in the first clip, we are observing GT (Jaffa). Unlike SH, she uses non-verbal communication to attract her teammates and not draw to much attention to herself within the game. Within the first freeze frame, you see her raise her arm and gesture to CM (Jaffa) to throw the ball in that direction. As well her teammate TL (Jaffa), identifies her running towards her, therefore they perform an overlap and GT is able to run into the space of which CM has thrown the ball. From this action Jaffa is able to move up the field rather quickly and score. Therefore, if we are comparing the two different techniques between SH and GT, both work as a communication technique but both have their ups and downs in game play.
Again in the second clip with two different teams we are primarily looking at non-verbal actions, very similar to GT actions. In the first freeze frame just before it is frozen, you witness TS (Musk) gain Zac’s attention by clapping her hands to indicate to Zac that she is ready to receive the ball. Again in the second freeze frame HP (Musk) claps her hands before she waves her arms in the air, this non-verbal communication again attracts Zac’s attention to pass the ball. Finally, in the last freeze frame, looking at a different aspect, we are focusing on Zac. Instead of using non-verbal communication to receive the ball, he uses it to be able to pass the ball. He gestures to HP to move forward and try to create space for him to pass it.
In relation to other aspects that interact with communication and attention, one’s cognitive map
is constantly used. When implementing an action related to communication, the player must draw on their past experiences of what has worked previously for the team as a whole, but also what has worked for them individually. Also when looking at attention and communication, one must look at force ratio. All players should constantly being using communication to their advantage and use this to create decisions that help them progress in game play.
