iCoachKids: Innovative Education & Training for a Specialist Children & Youth Coaching Workforce.

How Children Learn

You Have Not Coached Until They Have Learned

This quote, normally attributed to legendary basketball coach John Wooden, summarises the purpose of this section of iCoachKids. Coaching is not about delivering drills, games and sessions. Coaching is about kids learning something. If they are not learning, you are not coaching. If they don't get it, we have to coach better. Period.

Pedagogy, the art and science of teaching (and coaching) provides the foundation for high quality teaching. Here we will LEARN the latest in pedagogy so whatever bunch of kids we find ourselves in front of we can try our best to make sure they get something from our sessions.

As the old adage goes 'if they cannot learn they way we teach, we will have to teach the way they learn'.
