    One way a performer could evaluate the effectiveness of their Training Programme is to conduct a re-test of their initial methods of data collection. Such re-testing could take place at the middle and end of training programmes to determine how much progress has been made. Let's consider the Performance Profiling Wheel which could be used across all four factors.

    'One method I used to evaluate my progress in the Emotional factor was the Performance Profiling Wheel (PPW).'
    ‘The PPW collects information on a range of different Emotional sub-factors by comparing my performance to a model performer. It is a wheel containing 6 sections. In each section are 10 segments with 1 (inner) being the worst and 10 (outer) being the best.'
    'I completed this method at home at the end of my training programme. I labelled each section with a sub-factor from the emotional factor and then considered what a model performer from my class would be. If they were 8/10, I coloured in the inner 8 segments in red.

    'Sadness can also impact my training performances. When my coach told us she was leaving, my teammates and I were upset meaning we were not fully focused or motivated during the session meaning we did not carry out approaches correctly and we hardly developed our weaknesses.'
    'Finally, the level of trust I have in my teammates could impact my performance development. When trying to improve my headstand, I did not trust that my partner would not catch my feet when rising up meaning I did not fully commit to the movement and never had enough momentum to carry out the skill correctly and I never improved this skill.'

    KEY:
    Statement
    Point of explanation
    'Co-operation skills can impact performance development. Being co-operative during a feeder practice in tennis can help improve performance because you can provide feeds to your partner and give them feedback on their strengths and areas for development.'
    'Etiquette can also impact performance development. If performers are demonstrating etiquette during conditioned games, it can lead to performers feeling less intimidated playing against teams that are better than them and therefore giving100% effort which can help them improve.'
    'Relationships is another factor that could impact performance development. Having poor relationships with a teammate can mean that you do not respect their opinion and are therefore unwilling to listen to their feedback meaning you could lose one source of improvement.'
    'Finally, team dynamics can impact performance development. Being part of a team that has high team dynamics means they will support and encourage you when you fail to reach a goal to help you bounce back in your next training session.'
