Formation of Motor Skills in Athletes in Bullet Shooting at the Initial Stage of Training




bullet shooting, motor skill, technical training


The purpose of the study – to describe the peculiarities of the formation of motor skills in athletes in bullet shooting at the initial stage of training.

Materials and methods. The following research methods were used to solve the tasks: analysis and generalization of scientific and methodological literature, pedagogical observations, processing of results. The analysis of the scientific and methodological literature made it possible to establish that in the technical training of young shooters the available general information is given without specifying the use of tools and methods for learning motor skills. The pedagogical observation was used to study the peculiarities of learning the technique of performing bullet shooting elements, as well as mastering motor skills.

Results. The analysis of educational and training activities allowed to determine that learning to master the technical elements of shooting athletes at the stage of initial training requires the use of modern methods and tools. A number of educational and methodological documents were analyzed: the curriculum for the training of archery for children and youth sports schools, specialized children and youth schools of the Olympic reserve, schools of higher sportsmanship and educational institutions of sports profile; specialized literature on shooter training. In the process of analysis it was determined that the technical training of athletes occupies a significant share of the duration of the training process, and requires the use of an increased arsenal of additional tools for the effective study of shooting techniques.

Conclusions. A detailed analysis of the specialized educational and methodological literature for the training of shooters revealed that in the group of initial training technical training is characterized by studying the basics of elements of shooting techniques, namely: racks for shooting, aiming, breathing, finger pressure on the trigger. Mastering these basics of the elements of shooting technique directly depends on quality and well-formed motor skills, which in the future will allow the athlete to achieve a high sports result.
