Motor Learning and Volleyball
Motor learning is a relatively permanent change in the ability to execute a motor skill as a result of practice or experience. This is in contrast to performance, the act of executing a motor skill that results in a temporary, nonpermanent change - motor performance is just the ability to perform a motor task. Motor learning is to have a carryover between one movement pattern and other functional movement patterns.
