Coaching DURING the Game

Learn the 3 Basic Types

 
 
 
 
Coaching DURING the Game
 
Yes, you are allowed to coach your student during the game!  In this short article, I want to outline the 3 basic types of coaching that can and should sometimes be done DURING THE GAME – encouragement, informative, and secretive.
 
Encouragement
Encouragement like “Come on”  “This point”  “Good shot” “Keep fighting”  are very helpful.  The type and amount of encouragement will differ greatly from player to player.
 
Informative

Devastate the Underdog

Learn Proper Preparation

 
 
 
 
 
I estimate that over 50% of upsets could have been avoided!
Let me explain...
 
 
 
 
As soon as the upset happens, there is usually a whirlwind of excusing flying all across the gym.  Some of them are non-sense.  Some of them are legit.
I have often heard excuses like…
“I didn’t warm-up before the match.”
“I thought he was easy; I won 3-0 last time we played.”
“I was just so hungry, that I couldn’t concentrate.”
“I started off the first game just trying out some new fancy shots.”
