Non-descriptive terms abound in this world, and nowhere is this more obvious than with the term climate change, for what does the term climate change actually mean?
So searching the web, watched a few you tube videos, managed to come across this official description of what climate change is:
“Climate change refers to significant changes in global temperature, precipitation, wind patterns and other measures of climate that occur over several decades or longer”
Well with that phrase one could just about put to anything that they want:
It’s getting hotter – That’s Climate Change
It’s getting colder – That’s Climate Change
It’s getting wetter – That’s Climate Change
It’s getting dryer – That’s Climate Change
And we see the use of this in sport, where unintentionally the biggest non-descriptive term is The Basics, but what are they?
Push, Hit, Pass, Catch, Dribble
Are normally typical examples of the use of the non-descriptive term the basics, which doesn’t really help anyone getting into a sport.
Instead, try using a term such as core skills to see how one’s approach changes in about teaching skills to the players.
For the more specific that one can be, the better results one can begin to get, otherwise the terms used just clouds the issue for all concerned
