Disciplines in Coaching Part II
This course has lessons that focus on the initial evaluation of a new student. The video lessons will show Rick as he steps through a first lesson with a new student. Some very important messages come out in the lessons in this course: Have a lesson plan; Get to know your student and her parents; Look at her mechanics throughout all her warm ups, including full motion pitching before you formulate your assessment; The assessment is best done with backward chaining techniques; find something positive she is doing and point that out; have her demonstrate the suggested corrective movements. Corrective movements/drills arising out of the assessment need to be prioritized…..a young student should not be asked to correct more than one or two things before her next lesson.
