The outline to the coaching process is not complicated, and the more we look at principles, the less complicated it becomes, and having an outline allows one to be able to build a framework and structure for what they do, and the coaching outline consists of 5 basic things, being:
Trial & Error – It is important to realize that all coaching is trial and error, for one must try things to see if they work.
Aim & Picture – The aim is the one basic idea or concept one is working to, and the picture is the puzzle pieces which allows the aim and the concept to come into being.
Base & Growth – The base is the foundation and will comprise of things such as fitness, core skills, discipline and playing structure, and growth is everything else that allows the players to develop and grow into better players.
Framing & Reinforcement – Framing is the initial ideas and concepts that one presents at the first team meeting, and reinforcement is what one says and does during the season to back up what was initially said.
Practice Structure – The basic framework and outline of how one puts their training sessions together.
