Effective Coaching Styles : Discovering Their Impact on Athlete Development
MetadataShow full item record
Coaches across the country aspire to make a difference and change the lives of their players for the better. This Senior Individualized Project (SIP) will analyze the positive and negative effects of multiple coaching practices and how they impact their athlete’s development. Furthermore, specific examples of coaches will be cited to provide additional reinforcement to how each of their respected styles has influenced their teams and overall success. To aid this process of understanding effective coaching styles, this paper will also examine the different ways that athletes learn and receive coaching. The primary visual resource that will be used to further illustrate these learning styles will be the Honey & Mumford: Typology of Learners diagram. Finally, to come full circle, this SIP will offer a bridging of both the coaching and athlete styles that best creates a success formula for winning and player development.
