The Quiet eye is as a key predictor is from the efficient implementation in the inhibitory tasks and targeting. This research aims to Study the effect of quiet eye training on improving the Function of pistol shooters.
The research was semi-experimental study with pre-test-post-test design. The participants were 20 male and female shooters with an average age of 22 years and a record between 545 and 555. Among the 60 male and female shooters who participated in the 10-meter pistol race, who were participated in the country's competitions Targeted. After completing the consent form, were purposely and available selected and based on rated scores of pre-test, who were placed in two groups (10 quiet eye training and 10 technical training). Participants performed 10 attempts at each of the pre-test, post-test, and retention tests. The training protocol of the quiet eye group was in accordance with the pattern obtained from the elite shooter pattern along with the verbal instruction for 8 sessions and in 6 blocks of 10 consecutive shoots. Data was analyzed through the independent t-test, analysis of variance with repeated and follow-up Bonfroni measurement and using SPSS software version 20 at the level p<0.05.
The results of analysis of variance with repeated measurement of research groups (from pre-test to retention) showed that these changes were significant for the quiet eye training group (p=0.001). According to the results of the Bonferroni test: quiet eye training group had a better shooting. Function in the post- test (p=0.01) and retention (p=0.02) than the pre-test. The results of independent t-test showed that there was a significant difference between quiet training groups and technical group in the post-test (p=0.007) and retention phase (p=0.004).
The results showed that quiet eye training can improve the learning of pistol shooting skills through external guidance of visual.
