Developing coaching expertise is a lifelong process that enables coaches to grow personally and professionally. One key approach coaches can utilize as part of this journey is to build a sound pedagogical base and implement effective pedagogical skills. In coaching, extensive subject knowledge, coupled with pedagogical experience, provides the coach with a variety of instructional options to select from to help athletes learn, especially when they fail to grasp an explanation, demonstration or concept. The purpose of this article is to provide coaches with the following six strategies to develop a pedagogical coaching base: 1) seek opportunities to learn, 2) establish a teaching style that fits, 3) adapt to the learner, 4) implement teaching cues, 5) maximize participation opportunities, and 6) give effective feedback.
