About this product
- DescriptionThis book is about helping coaches coach. Applying Educational Psychology in Coaching Athletes discusses how to improve coaching success and athletic performance through the application of teaching principles and theories. Delving deeper than simply offering an explanation of what athletes learn and what coaches teach, it provides insight into the principles of psychology that drive the emotions, motivation, expectations, self-worth and relationships of athletes. It also looks at how those same psychological principles can be applied to the motor learning process and the improvement of sport expertise and coaching success. By considering the theories that drive success, developing coaches gain focus, motivation and guidance as they learn how a thoughtful coach provides the structure and discipline to make athletes more successful on the field of play.
