They would rather be coached by the arrogant imbecile than the modest genius. (more to come later)

There is a fundamental human need for certainty - especially in times of increased anxiety.

20 odd years of coaching/refereeing school sport and one of the consistent conversations I’ve had with others is whether children have changed in that time. I’ve come to the judgement that it’s the adults who have changed.

I'm going to work on 1 at a time & thought I'd start with Commitment. I wanted to use the first 5 mins of our first session to introduce it & what it will mean to us. Here's audio of that - bit clumsy from me but a reasonable starting point I feel

43% regret not playing other sports, but equally, over half don't regret it. The driving factor for the kids I coach is the 'fun factor'. Specialization (in my lowly humble opinion) is a parental choice.

We talk about but add in daily homework on top of 3-4 sports per week and you have a very tired kid (and parent).

I fear it is not so simple. Those kids I know who play multiple sports are 'thrashed' by 3-4 coaches during the week. No communication between coaches about TL&ML. My son has athletics pre-school, & rugby/swimming after school. I keep an eye on load but not many parents do.

Yes, a good read. I was particularly interested in his comments on the "Cult of the Coach". If I remember correctly Simon Strachan outlines how they measure cohesion here - time playing together etc.

“The mafia is cohesive but their culture isn’t great,” Ben Darwin. This is a really interesting article. Leads me to two questions. (1) Is the importance of Culture all it’s cracked up to be? (2) How do we measure cohesion?

Commitment - We'll look at Rewards & Consequences next & implement an "Every Time" approach & see how our behaviour develops. Also need to discuss their expectations of me - plus consequences. Keen to hear how other people are using PCDE's & what glaring errors I'm making!

Underpinning the framework I am using are PCDE's (Psychological Characteristics of Developing Excellence). I used these implicitly & lightly last year but want to become more explicit with them this year & use them as a basis of our behaviour standards

Any clubs in Cardiff on this Tuesday evening want some coaching support, whatever level, please drop me a line. Got a bunch of new drills/activities/games to introduce too!

He's had the victim nicked for biting the attacker? I probably shouldn't even joke about that...
