Welcome to The Expert Advantage!

Thank you for visiting The Expert Advantage – the official blog of the Pathways to the Podium Research Project.

Throughout the course of the Pathways to the Podium Research Project, brief insights into the secrets and science of sport expertise will be posted here to keep you updated and educated on the latest information relating to skill acquisition, motor learning, and the development of sport expertise.

Many of The Expert Advantage blog posts will focus on the information that is driving the Pathways to the Podium Research Project. In particular, we will be discussing what we do know and what we don’t know about the typical progression from sport introduction to sport expertise, as well as the factors that may influence this pathway.

On occasion, The Expert Advantage will also discuss recent research relating to coaching and practice techniques targeted towards maximising learning and enhancing sport performance, and will offer insights and reflections from conferences and workshops attended by the Pathways to the Podium Research Team.

We hope you enjoy reading The Expert Advantage. Please feel free to post comments, questions, and feedback on any of our pages, and be sure to subscribe using the link in the menu bar on the right hand side of the page.

We are looking forward to sharing the secrets and science of sport expertise with you!
