What God Wants

It might not be what you think...

Psalm 51:15-17
Oh Lord, open my lips, and my mouth shall show forth your praise.  For You do not desire sacrifice, or else I would give it: you do not delight in burnt offering.  The sacrifices of God are a broken spirit, a broken and a contrite heart – these, Oh God, You will not despise.

Coaching DURING the Game

Learn the 3 Basic Types

 
 
 
 
Coaching DURING the Game
 
The new ITTF rule allows for coaching during the match.  There are 3 basic types – encouragement, informative, and secretive.
 
Encouragement
For the most part, encouragement like “Come on”  “This point”  “Good shot” “Keep fighting”  these were usually allowed under the old rule.  It is good for coaches to continue encouraging the players.  The type and amount of encouragement will differ greatly from player to player.
