Abstract

This research project focuses on the benefits of Quiet Eye (QE) to help free throw shooters out of slumps. The purpose of this thesis is to investigate what slumps are, why they occur, what QE is, why it is a useful tool in athletics, and why it can be used to help an athlete improve free throw shooting. Literature review is the main source of information collecting, and builds off research that Joan Vickers has completed on QE. As a future coach, this research is very important to me. QE has usefulness beyond free throw shooting/sports and delves into more serious areas such as law enforcement. The goal of this project is to highlight an unfamiliar, yet useful, skill in athletics.
