Prior studies have examined the influence of sport participation, speed of movement and plane of movement on coincidence anticipation, and found contradictory results for performance on specific laboratory tasks. This study examined the relationship of sport participation, specifically fast-pitch softball and various perceptual manipulations (i.e. speed and plane of movement) on the performance of a laboratory coincidence anticipation task. College-aged (M = 22.4 years) female fast-pitch softball players (N = 12) and non-athletes (N = 12) completed a coincidence anticipation task under two speeds (2.24m/sec and 4.5m/ sec) and two planes of movement (sagittal and frontal). Results indicated that softball participation, speed of movement and plane of movement were significantly associated with performance on the coincidence anticipation task.
