YOUTH COACHING WORKSHOP
“The science of developing an athlete is centered in the particular technical information associated with prescribed exercises”.“The artof developing an athlete is based on the coaches ability to teach”.Brian Grasso – International Youth Conditioning Association
… is a philosophy to unleash the potential of New Zealand athletes by a style of coaching that promotes learning through ownership, awareness and responsibility
Coach knowledge, Instructional, autocratic approach
Athlete knowledge, Questioning, empowered approach
Coach Owns Process (It’s all about the Coach)
Coach takes responsibility – athlete not aware
Little accountability lies with athlete
Focus is on TELLING
Athlete reliant on coach?
Game Sense approach
Players become more tactically aware and therefore able to make better decisions during the game
Players start to develop skills in a realistic context rather than practising them in isolation
Tactics before Technique! (WHY before HOW)
Key is that we have games/activities that challenge and involve, and that we have produced coach independent learners.
Practice and game design that reduces the amount of verbal input from the coach
Make sure the game design is reflective of key learning goals
All key information sources available so learners can become attuned to them
Use questions to develop awareness.
