Visual occlusion involves blocking part of the vision of an athlete while they execute a skill. Gaze behaviour involves identifying where an athlete looks during skill execution, otherwise known as fixations. A benefit of developing skill in sport is the capacity to execute a skill without having to look at the skill, enabling the athlete to visually scan the environment around them to inform them of the most appropriate next action. An example of this in sport, is the skill of dribbling a basketball without looking at the ball while engaging with the other players on the court.
