Abstract

This study investigated the effect of Teaching Games for Understanding (TGfU) in coaching contexts of elite Malaysian school hockey players as they have problems in terms of game play of ball control, decision making, skill execution with players on the ball, as well as supporting player?s role without ball in 5 versus 5 mini game situation as well as cardiovascular fitness, power and speed components among the players. The study was a quasi-experimental equivalent pretest-posttest control groups design whereby sports school players and district level hockey players (14-17 years old) randomly assigned to experimental groups of TGfU, (n= 15), and control group known as SDT (skill drills and technical model), (n=15). The TGfU model was exposed to tactical coaching approach, while the control group of SDT underwent technical model of skill-based coaching in hockey. The effectiveness of these two models was measured by Game Observation Instrument for 5 vs. 5 mini game play, Multi-Stage Fitness Test (MSFT), Standing Broad Jump, 30m flying start were used to measure fitness components of cardiovascular, explosive leg power and 30 m speed.ANOVA was used to analyze the data, followed with analysis of covariance (ANCOVA) if the pretest results yielded significant difference. The results indicated that there were significant difference as TGfU seems to be a better model compared to traditional approach of SDT on players ball control in 5 versus 5 mini game play F(1,28) =4.25, p<0.05 and cardiovascular fitness F(1,28) = 11.72, p<0.05. Whereas SDT, indicated significantly better model for improving leg power among the players. Conclusion: more research has to be done to validate these two models in Malaysia in coaching context in term of game play and fitness components.
