Podcast - Using 'periodised instability' to develop athletes

Danny Newcombe is Senior Lecturer in Sport Coaching and Physical Education at Oxford Brookes University as well as being Assistant Coach to the Wales Men's Hockey Team and coach to Southgate Hockey Club Men's first team in the England National Hockey League.

He is a genuine 'pracademic' in that he has the theory and he puts it into practice as well.

In this episode we discuss...

  • The evolution of practice design from drills to games and everything in between

  • The 'practice design framework' and how you can use it to devise practices that have the optimal amount of chaos and instability to facilitate learning

  • How to ensure that you individualise your coaching by viewing each athlete as a different 'species'
