Coaching, Competition, Caterpillars & Cats - A random conversation on youth sport with Nick Leve

A slight change of pace in this episode. I am joined by regular contributor, Nick Levett who unloads his brain with me on all manner of topics related to the youth port experience.

In this episode we cover:

  • What is the point of coaching for kids? Is it actually doing them any good?

  • Is adult risk aversion ruining play for children.

  • Why formal competition for youngsters should be banned.

  • Why adult conceptions of what should feature in a child's sport experience may be destroying their enjoyment and harming their chances of progression.

  • Practical methods to enable children to develop skills through games using an approach called 'Playperation'

And so much more....

Hope you enjoy
