Abstract

Cognition could be defined as the totality of mental processes related to the intelligent

functions such as perception, comprehension, learning, recognition and remembrance.

In sports sciences it includes specifications such as attention, perception, the

speed of comprehension, transformations in short term visual memory, motoric rationalism

(game concept), creativity, interpretation, forming correct relationships, the skill

to take initiative and tactical skills. These characteristics are extremely valuable in the

exhibition of athletes’ performances for their athletic achievements. Thus, it is inevitable

for the top-tier coaches to implement applications to develop these characteristics in

their athletes. In today’s extreme athletic competition, it is anticipated that the achievements

are only possible through advanced performance awareness in early stages and

systematic training applications
