#playingyourpart – what I won’t be taking from England’s DNA

A couple of pieces of coaching technique I won’t be pursuing, from the “England’s DNA: Playing your part” conference last Sunday.

“NO, NO, NO – not like that”

And (repeated several times during a practical session) – “go on, go on, you’re in…oh, you missed that one”

“Trial-and-error” is a perfectly valid coaching methodology, but it has its limits.  If you are going to let your players learn from their mistakes, either let them get on with playing without comment, or keep any comments you do make positive.
