Socio cultural constraints…not something I ever expected to blog about…

Socio-cultural constraints – how a player’s social and cultural background influences learning behaviour…not something I ever expected to blog about.

However, translating frantically, if we were to say that the coach really should try to understand where the players come from, then this becomes a little easier to put into practice.

Two recent examples:

  • with a 10 year old girl, county age group, lots of advice from different directions, all well intentioned but sometimes contradictory – “smile sweetly, say ‘thank you’, take on board everything you have been told…and find out what works for you
  • with an 11 year old boy…challenge their logic, challenge their pride – “what happened then? did it work? can you do it again? snd what can you do next time to get an even better outcome?”
