Title: The observation of gender differences in handball
Author: Pic Aguilar, Miguel
Abstract: Superar una mirada superficial en relación al género en balonmano, mediante la identificación de diferencias entre chicas y chicos en competiciones de alto nivel es objetivo del presente trabajo. Sobre qué variables o criterios (lanzamientos, efectividad, espacio y señalizaciones arbitrales) y categorías observacionales descansan estas diferencias resulta esencial para poder identificar comportamientos estratégicos. Se recurrió a una metodología observacional para registrar los eventos del juego. Fueron seleccionados dos partidos de balonmano femenino y dos partidos masculinos, pertenecientes a las fases finales de los juegos olímpicos de Londres 2012. El diseño observacional fue nomotético, puntual y multidimensional. Se diseñó una herramienta ‘ad hoc’, puesta en práctica por dos evaluadores. Una vez fueron registrados los datos mediante el software Lince, fueron analizados mediante la técnica de reducción de datos Theme. Los resultados evidenciaron la existencia T-patterns en función del género.Overcoming a superficial view regarding the gender in handball, through the identification of differences between women and men in high level competitions is the objective of this work. Knowing on which observational variables or criteria (throwing, effectiveness, zone and referee signs) and categories these differences rely is essential for identifying strategic behaviors. An observational methodology was used to record the events of the game. Two women's and two men's handball matches were selected, belonging to the final phases of the London 2012 Olympic Games. The observational design was nomothetic, punctual and multidimensional. An ‘ad hoc’ tool was designed, and it was implemented by two evaluators. Once the data were recorded using the Lince software, they were analyzed through the data reduction technique Theme. The results evidenced the existence of T-patterns based on gender.
