In the lead up to competition ensure that you are building intensity into your sessions, listen back to Episode 6 – Building Intensity
Want to develop your coaching, listen back to Episode 2 – Growth Mindset
“Coach development takes time, a good support network, you need to have someone you can pick up the phone to and discuss things through with, it is important to get feedback from players and other coaches and also important that you don’t always give players the answers, let them work the problems out for themselves sometimes” Click here to hear the whole podcast.
If you are on Twitter…one of our favourite accounts is @YLMSportscience …interesting infographics on so many topics in sports performance; nutrition, psychology, sleep, intensity. Lots of information put simply.
Another amazing website on Growth Mindset is TrainUgly.com
“We’re on an adventure to discover and share the science & art of learning.”
