Coaching Young Athletes
Do you Teach or Train and deliver great coaching young athletes?
If you are like most coaches and trainers I am familiar with, you likely ‘train’ your athletes as a means to elicit biomotor improvement.
You work on various forms of sprints and jumping in order to develop ‘blazing speed’.
You lift weights or perform bodyweight exercises to increase ‘mammoth strength’.
You set out cones and have your young athletes practice elaborate movement drills as a way of improving their ‘stealth-like agility’.
These types of exercises in themselves are not problematic or bad per say…
But they are only quasi-beneficial and extremely narrow-scoped if you aren’t looking to teach your young athletes the skills they need to perform these drills and set them up to improve on the next level.
