This study investigated the effects of experience and presentation format on memorization processes in 24 experienced and 24 beginner soccer players, using a 2 × 3 factorial design ‘Expertise’ (Beginner vs. Experienced player) and ‘Presentation Format’ (Static, Dynamic, Combined). Factors were tested at 3 moments (immediate test, study phase and delayed recall accuracy) by asking the subjects to reproduce the positions of players relative to the ball and to each other. The main results confirmed expertise reversal effect for the immediate test and study phase. However the expertise reversal effect disappeared in the delayed recall accuracy test in the dynamic and static formats.
