Boutcher & Rotella (1987) however asserted that future research needs to measure the efficacy of the subcomponents and intervention techniques. ONE MORE STUDY The research into PST principally focuses on imagery and athletes almost invariably see imagery as being an imperative part of PST and some want imagery used more often. However a problem with PST is that coaches have no formal training, so it can be difficult to exploit the effectiveness of PST (Bolles & Chatfield,
Although some people say kids shouldn’t play youth competitive sports because they can get injured, the pros like teaching life skills outweigh the cons by a lot. The first example that shows youth competitive sports are good is they teach important
When the reality that change is needed so too is the ability to tap the individual and team innovation and creativity is also needed”. (J M. , 2005) According to Cabral in the book “The Successful Coach”, “coaching is not easy to define”. (1996). The International Sports Coaching Framework states that; “coaching is a process of guided improvement and development in a single sport at identifiable stages of athlete development” (ICCE, 2012). In the book “What is Sports Coaching”, they have a similar way of defining a coach by saying; “a coach is someone who uses sport as a vehicle for the development of individuals both as performers and as people” (Miles, What is Sports Coaching?, 2003).
The sport education model for teaching is an effective way to not only to get students involved and active but also to teach the many different factors and benefits sports can offer. One of main ideas behind sport education is to teach new and different sports to the students. If this is done efficiently they can be shown dozens of new sports throughout their school career. A lot of physically, unhealthy, and inactive people do not have a favorite sport or are not very good at the one’s they have been introduced to before. Hopefully after learning and playing so many different ones they can find one they can enjoy and/or excel at.
Also you need to possess certain personality traits (“How” para. 18). P.E. teachers instruct students how to play sports and teach them about the benefits of physical activity (“How” para. 4).
Our youth are becoming increasingly involved in a more advanced level of competition with the hopes of obtaining their dreams of being the best at their chosen sport. It takes discipline to complete endurance and agility building exercises; thus you create a more disciplined athlete. Because speed, endurance, and agility are not sport specific, they have benefits in all athletic endeavors. Teaching good nutritional habits can benefit the young athlete by preparing the body for physical exertion and aid in prevention and faster recovery from the least to most serious injuries. From injury prevention to elite athlete status, youth training can be beneficial to recreational athletes as well as professional athletes, both male and female.
Some of them are short term effects, and if lack of sleep continues, it will lead to chronic diseases and will have negative impact on your health. Among those health issues are, impaired brain activity, cognitive dysfunction, moodiness, depression, yawning, memory problems, hallucinations, accident prone, cold and flu, weekend immune system, weight gain, high blood pressure, type 2 diabetes, heart problems and accidental death (Pietrangelo, 2014). When we don’t get enough sleep, our brain can’t function properly. It affects our cognitive and emotions. If it continues for a longer period of time, it will result in chronic illnesses.
He cannot work well as one nor can he work well as a team player because he needs to have self confidence. Self confidence is very essential. Many sports psychologists help athletes to realize that if you are less confident about yourself, the tendency is for that someone not to take the challenge and the risks. On the other hand, if one has over-confidence, you could end up losing a game for taking things for granted and not trying hard enough. With having self confidence, anything seems possible, and without it, you will conquer nothing.
This is because S&C is important for improving the athlete in the following areas, injury prevention, and improved performance of the athletes through: improved strength, speed, power, confidence and lastly through the fitness systems according to (Smith, (20... ... middle of paper ... ...description posted by the Essex Cricket (2013) they would have to cover many different roles, Essex Cricket specified they wanted S&C during in-season and off-season sessional periods looking at field and weight based training methods that would have to reflect the specific needs of their athlete’s, while also working with the England S&C coach producing monthly reports highlighting there performance about squad players. Furthermore the roles also include major components prehabilition, injury preventions and also looking at the recovery process. In addition the job role for an S&C coach also involves looking into the nutrition needs to provide appropriate nutrition for players on both match days and during periods, looking at the athlete’s workload monitoring of training and time played in matches, fitness testing to cover all aspect of their athlete’s performance.
No matter the task at hand it will require the combined use of speed, agility and strength in order for them to be competitive. I have taken some creative liberties for this discussion considering the detailed description for this discussion is “High school track athlete”. I am considering the time of year we are currently in now and configuring a HIIT program designed for preseason. The program will be designed with the thought in mind that the athlete has been working on their conditioning prior to this session following the end of the previous season. This session is designed to jolt the body into reacting to the stresses it will be place in over the next few months as well as prepare it for the events it will eventually be participating in.
