Basic is the very foundation of which something built upon, and the basic idea of what’s been worked on over the years is to provide a foundation for anyone wanting to get into coaching, for what ever reason.
For the basic excuse used most about not coaching are generally two, with them being:
“I don’t know anything about the sport”
“I don’t know anything about coaching”
I never knew anything about writing a blog when I started, and I never knew anything about coaching either when I began coaching back in 1988.
And not knowing anything about a sport is redundant too, for everyone is a sideline critic and an analysis expert.
Ultimately at the end of the day, people don’t want to be responsible if things don’t work out, though that is one of the challenges of coaching, working out why things didn’t work out and then improving upon it.
So as one explores this website, especially the posters, by the time one has gone through them all, one should begin to have built a basic foundation to build upon.
For always remember the Ninety Ninety Rule of Coaching, because I wish I had known it back 30 odd years ago when I first started, because it forms the whole basic foundation of coaching, in that:
