The role model is very important at this stage. Children begin to identify with famous players and successful teams. They want to learn imaginative skills so skill demonstration is very important – Players learn best by “seeing and doing.” Players move from self-centered to self-critical with a high stimulation level during basic skills training.
This is also a window to teach basic principles of play and establish training ethic and discipline. Repetitions are important to develop technical excellence, but creating a fun and challenging environment is still essential to stimulate learning.
NOTE: All coaches must complete the Making Ethical Decisions (MED) multi-sport module including the online evaluation to complete their program & be considered “Trained”. Find more information about this in the FAQ section.
