Body position is critical
Coaching young players to understand the importance of body position in team sports is critical to them being able to play quickly, and at the highest level. Studies vary on the actual percentage, but it is commonly reported that 65% of the population are visual learners (Mind Tools, 1998) – while some studies suggest that up to 80% are NOT oral learners. Yet 80-90% of instruction is delivered orally.
One of the visual aids at your disposal when coaching young players is the magnetic whiteboard and whiteboard magnets. While there have been massive advances in how we coach young players in all sports, there has been little or no evolution of the humble whiteboard magnet.
We started with coloured discs, added numbers, made bigger discs with bigger numbers, but to date there have been minimal attempts to show orientation or body position.
Until now ...
