Nick Winkelman Coaching Science – Workout Coaching Cues – Nick Winkelman Cueing
This lecture, Science of Coaching: Theory Applied, looks at the concept of coaching science — a skills acquisition presentation. Nick Winkelman presents a framework for coaching to optimize the environment and the delivery of information, which allows athletes to retain and learn at a higher rate that ideally transfers to the field of play. This material is also helpful for trainers who work with individuals, because how you present your material affects how your clients and athletes learn.
“If we understand how someone controls movement, we have a better understanding of how someone learns to move. If we understand how someone learns to move, we can optimize those pieces within our practice design, our instruction and our feedback.
“When we look at the whole framework for coaching, we have to take a look at motor control and learning. Motor control and learning really create the foundation for practice and the development of an environment that optimizes learning.” ~Nick Winkelman
