Coaching Theories

Back to Coaches

There are some things it’s just good to know as a coach, whether it’s in terms of Sports Science, Psychology or Skill Acquisition. This section includes theories that can be really important for your coaching in general, whatever the sport. Have a look through, have a think, and see if and how they can apply to your coaching.

These are theories, remember, and so may not be wholly practical in terms of a Korfball training session.
