Docheff, Dennis
Strategies: A Journal for Physical and Sport Educators, v23 n6 p34-35 Jul-Aug 2010
It is clear that feedback is critical to effective teaching and learning. In fact, it might be said that without feedback, learning does not occur. Coaches must deliver instruction and then provide feedback for the athlete to receive, retain, comprehend and show their learning through proper execution. Coaches must incorporate the use of effective feedback into their daily interactions with athletes. This article shares ideas relative to effective feedback for coaches. Five specific concepts related to feedback are proposed for coaches, although they also could be helpful for teachers to use with their students.
