Evolving, it’s something everything does at some stage or another, and even for the chocolate fish challenge I run for the junior teams I take.
For the whole coaching process is trial and error as one builds towards the picture that they’ve created in their mind.
The reason why things keep evolving is that what may have worked one year, the next year, for some reason, doesn’t.
And hence with the chocolate fish challenge, I’ve thrown out 3 of the skills and replaced them with specific core body techniques that are specific for the sport.
And the reason why it will keep evolving over time, is that when one makes adjustments or brings in new things, one has to see and observe what effect it has on the players development and the effect it has on their game, and whether it is advancing or hindering their progress.
