Abstract [en]

It is hypothesized that nonverbal behaviors of team sport athletes have an important impact on the course of the game. However, quantitative research on this topic is rare, partly due to a lack of scientifically sound coding schemes developed to assess nonverbal behavior in team sports. The aim of the present study is to develop a coding scheme that measures nonverbal behaviors displayed by female handball players in the post-shot period. A preliminary coding scheme was based on existing literature and an expert panel. This coding scheme was tested during eighteen matches in Sweden’s highest handball league. Based on the results of inter- and intra-agreement analyses, further adaptations were made. The final version, the Handball Post-Shot Behavior Coding Scheme (H-PSB-CS), included the categories post-shot behavior gesture (PSB-G) with six behaviors and post-shot behavior touch (PSB-T) with five behaviors. The development of the H-PSB-CS is discussed in light of the results and provides a resource to advance behavior-focused research. In addition, it may apply to sport psychology practitioners working with nonverbal behavior in their teams.
