The key to great coaching is to identify the skill-related problem (area for development) and think creatively about the best way to exaggerate the problem and create high volumes of repetition in a variable, game-like practice – think of it as ‘repetition without repetition’. Ask yourself the following questions: • Are the players enjoying and/ or engaged in the game? • Is the purpose of the game being achieved? • Are all the players being challenged appropriately? (is it too difficult, too easy, one-sided) If the answer to any of the above questions is NO, then CHANGE IT, but remember to retain the integrity of the game. – Insert repetition without repetition video For more support on designing great learning environments, check out the Practice Design Workshop. 17
