Coaching Structure & Teaching Model

Always be FUNdamental

Have two or three drills that you use to start each session – do not allow them to be mundane – coach them

Great coaches stress fundamental at all times

Account for individual difference in the team context wherever possible

Stress Situational Awareness – Game Sense

There is no correct or incorrect way to do things – Get er done

The perfect game has never been played

Mistakes are OK as long as you learn from them

Create adaptable athletes who do not have to think – make it reflexive and reactive

Basic Teaching Model (Remember athletes learn things by doing)

Show it (Visual of you doing it)

Chalk it (Diagram)

Talk It (Auditory)

Walk It (Kinesthetic)

Do It!

Start each session with a theme – Maybe even a word they have to use to key into a desired action

Give them homework

Give them the pan for each two weeks – make sure the parents get a copy

Be organized – Everyone responds to that!

Teaching and Coaching is selling

Correct unacceptable behavior and praise good behavior

Vern,
Can you please provide a few specific examples from your own work with athletes? Do you use this strategy with all levels and ages?
