Mike Ashford – Show Notes

In this episode I am joined by Mike Ashford. Mike is a PhD student at Leed Beckett University investigating Decision Making in Team Sports, is a Rugby Coach for Harrowgate RFC and Leeds University. Mike talks us through some key theories in decision making and helps us simplify the varied terminoogy and differences of opinion found throughout the area. Mike applies these different theories to practice and outlines his unified conceptual framework for player decision-making in invasion team sports.
