Sunday Setting Sights on Success Tip of the Day – Effective Ways to Instill the Right Way of Doing Things to Young Players
How to Be an Effective Sports Coach
Did you know? Just telling kids how to do sports’ skills rarely, if ever, changes how they are doing it. Muscle memory takes enormous amounts of repetition to perfect – especially skills like hitting, throwing, and fielding. Of course, you did, point is – continually yelling things like, “Keep your eye on the ball” or “Throw strikes,” hardly ever solves the problem. Coaches must show them the correct way with video, pictures, and demonstration – then give them drills that will better their mechanics and help them prevent pulling their head.
