Athlete Centred Coaching for Individual Sports (2017)
Type of ContentChapters
Positive Pedagogy for sport coaching is a relatively recent development but one that offers a way of thinking about coaching individual sports, technique and skill that are athlete-centred. This chapter outlines the Positive Pedagogy approach to coaching individual sport that I have developed by extending the core pedagogical features I suggest underpin Game Sense to a pedagogical approach for coaching individual sports such as swimming, athletics, gymnastics and martial arts. It provides a way of coaching that is both efficient in improving performance yet effective in promoting positive experiences of learning across all ages and abilities. Framed by adapting the core pedagogical features of the Game Sense approach to coaching individual sport it draws on Positive Psychology (and on the PERMA model in particular) and the work of Antonovsky on the origins of health and wellbeing (salutogenic theory and sense of coherence model) to make learning positive.
