Attention to Detail

 What is Attention to Detail?

The TAP's Attention to Detail scale measures one’s natural desire to pay attention to details and generally complete tasks properly.  Attention to Detail is tied to how prepared the athlete is for competition. It is also related to the tendency to plan ahead instead of just winging it.

 Why is it important?

Attention to Detail is important in helping to avoid unnecessary mistakes. Sometimes a small change can make a big difference. Any technique that requires finesse or precision benefits the person who has intense attention to detail. Attention to Detail can discriminate between the athlete who simply tries to get it done, versus the athlete who tries to get it done right.

 A higher score means...

Those with elite levels of Attention to Detail tend to be organized and can be relied upon to regularly execute on performance requirements and daily tasks. A high Attention to Detail is a common denominator in the makeup of many present and past great athletes.

 A lower score means...

Those with modest levels of Attention to Detail will need more support and cues/tools to help them better perform and complete tasks.  These athletes can benefit from reminders from others as well as using self-reminder techniques.
