Event description


The new Coach Connect Coordination and Control workshop has been developed by Dr Malcolm Fairweather, the Head of Science and Innovation at sportscotland’s Scottish Institute of Sport. This workshop will introduce how the coaching process and the environment a coach creates can impact upon the following:

• Coordination and Control

• The likelihood for skill exploration

• The number of ‘trials’ and feedback experienced

• Skill retention and transfer

• An understanding of the importance of errors,

• Maintaining a level of skill performance under pressure

• How an athlete adapts and learns given number of trials and their understanding of errors

The workshop will also introduce and explore the two laws of movement (influencing movement time/reaction time) and how these laws impact upon coach and athlete behaviour using practical elements throughout the workshop session.

This classroom based workshop will focus on developing your understanding of principles relating to growth and maturation and how you can use this to inform your coaching practice.

By the end of this workshop coaches will:

  • Understand the key principles of growth & maturation and development
  • Identify how this affects your athletes
  • Identify challenges this brings to you as the coach and potential solutions within your coaching practice
  • Recognise that athletes and players with different impairments may require adaption in coaching practice.
