ALARCON LOPEZ, Francisco; URENA ORTIN, Nuria  and  CARDENAS VELEZ, David. Learning complex basketball rules discriminative through instruction intentional. CPD [online]. 2014, vol.14, n.3, pp.109-116. ISSN 1989-5879.

The aim of this paper is to present a case study to see if a group of players get improve their decision -making through intentional learning of complex rules, with little perceptual salience. They included 10 basketball players male aged between 18 and 24 years (M = 21.47) . A within pre -experimental design was used , in which the group considered is the experimental group. In the study the effect of individual responses from each player in the intervention were examined with a cross comparison analyzing the pre and post exposure changes to the intervention, and other longitudinal, to assess the changes occurring throughout the season, selecting 8 games for it randomly . Decision making were measured during blocking actions that occurred during games. The intervention was based on the presentation of the keys using a reflective feedback The results show that after the process of training the players made better decisions for the actions of blocks. Furthermore a correlation between decision making and effectiveness found in the game. The results obtained in this study lead us to believe that the training of decision-making based on an explicit learning with a reflective intentionality may be suitable for highly complex actions such as those that occur in crashes in basketball.

Keywords : training; decisions making.
