The more and more one coaches, and the longer that one coaches for, one realises that you don’t have to teach the players everything, what you realise is that the real trick of coaching is in building into the players the cores and a few key points and develop the players from there.
Because the real trick of coaching is in finding what those core elements and key points are.
Because for playing a sport, the skills and techniques the players use are going to be very similar, though for the position that they play, there are going to be 3 to 4 things they have to do that are specific to those positions.
In other words, most players should be able to play in most positions though the more they play a position, the more one begins to understand the intricacies of that position
So, in summary:
Give the players 3 – 4 key things to play to about the position that they are playing
Build their development from the cores and a few key skills and techniques
For in doing this, one is not cluttering the players thinking process when out playing the game, and that is the real trick in coaching
The real trick in coaching is not over complicating and over cluttering the players thinking process
