BETTER COACHING FROM BETTER DECISIONS
[ TOOLS TO INCREASE COACHING EFFECTIVENESS ]

Coaching effectiveness is largely affected by the quality of decisions made to accommodate the needs of individuals. Observing individuals within a group to discern important symptoms of training responses and behavioral trends, needs, and variations is usually unreliable, inaccurate, and incomplete. This workshop describes practical and accurate assessment tools that can be used in training and competitive settings without appreciably increasing the workload of the coach. They are designed to provide reliable coach-usable information that should influence program and interactional decisions concerning individual athletes. Employing these devices is proposed as a means of increasing the capability and effectiveness of coaches.

Most of the assessment tools have been developed by Dr. Rushall and his colleagues and cover the following areas.

WHAT TO EXPECT FROM COACHES

Modern coaching theory is becoming increasingly complex. New sport science revelations and practices by elite sporting nations indicate that coaching programs have to be up-to-date to be effective. This workshop describes seven principles for coaching advanced athletes, the features that underlie effective coaching systems, and coaching behaviors that indicate a degradation of coaching effort and effectiveness. Participants should gain an understanding of what needs to be done to produce maximized performances in athletes through coaching effectiveness.
