Formulating Effective Movement Problems

A big part of effective coaching is formulating appropriate movement problems for you athletes to solve. Here are three things I consider:

  • Learn when to use explicit learning or implicit learning methods – learning to balance the two is a skill.
  • Learn to use constraints that will challenge the athlete and lead them to the solution
  • Develop task appropriate cues – Use action words and clear metaphors

Movement problems for an elite athlete will look and feel different than those for a beginner. Ultimately the goal at any level is to reinforce the basics and instill competence and confidence.
