Autonomous Phase - What to Expect

– In the AUTONOMOUS or ADVANCED PHASE, skill performed at maximum


– Performance is automatic

– Very little conscious thought/attention is required

– Asking performers at this high skill level to consciously focus on movement can

seriously disrupt performance, especially in high-speed activities

– A player’s motor program for generating correct movement is highly developed

and well-established in memory

– Players can now free up focus and concentrate on things other than technique

– The time and practice required to reach this stage depends on ability of

individual, complexity of task, learner’s previous movement experiences, and the

efficiency of the learning environment

– Some say it requires a minimum of 10 years and over 1 million repetitions

produce high-level performance in major sports
