The purpose of this study is to examine the effect of the knowledge base and skillful memory in handball refereeing error detection tasks between the different actors of the discipline, players and referees, to locate the level of expertise of the first group than the second group. Participants are three groups of 12 referees each one, of three different levels (Expert, Competent and Novice), and other group of 12 Expert players. Their task was to respond correctly, by detecting the presence or absence of faults; justifying this response and administering the appropriate sanction, at the end of the course of each game sequences presented in video twice (priming for repetition), to consider: 1º, the effect of the knowledge base – study phase - and, 2º, the effect of the expert memory – test phase. We hypothesized a lack of differences between the performance of Expert players and referees in the error detection task in terms of Relevance Response and Response Coherence back sequences when the second presentation. Analysis of the data shows the performance for the Expert groups (referees, players) on the referees (Novices, Competent). We infer these results to the knowledge base and skillful memory effect. This agrees partially with the classical results on cognitive expertise in the sporting context or chess (Gobet, 1993).
