Abstract: Peripheral perception in sport is a theoretical and methodological challenge. Previous research suggests three functionalities: the monitoring of multiple moving objects, the detection of motion changes, and the peripheral preview function that is involved in the planning of saccades. However, empirical evidence supporting these functionalities was missing. In a series of studies using the multiple-object tracking paradigm, the first two functionalities were empirically supported. Furthermore, visual and attentional factors influencing these functionalities were determined. In the next step, the terms anchor, pivot, and spot were defined and specific predictions were derived for each of the functionalities that can be empirically tested in sport-specific investigations. The findings from these investigations show the transferability of fundamental results into the field of sports. Sports practice could benefit from science-based gaze and attention training that can be integrated in training routines to exploit the full potential of peripheral perception. Keywords: decision-making, gaze behavior, pivot, anchor, spot
