Coach Development Day (Loughborough)
Host: Owen McNally and Jonas Dodoo
Date: 25th March 2022
Venue: Loughborough University
Coach Development Day focuses on combining the Art and Science of coaching explosive movements, with communication being the centrepiece.
While the modern coach must of course be able to understand and interpret the evidence that underpins coaching/physical development, there is an additional need to be able to summarise it simply and communicate “what matters” clearly to their athletes.
Coach Development Day is a fully inclusive experience in which Jonas Dodoo will take coaches through the fundamentals of coaching acceleration and max velocity. In addition, he will cover how exactly to use gym/field-based drills to develop coordination and conditioning for speed, to really maximise transfer of training.
Within these session’s Jonas will share his framework for exercise selection and cueing, describing in depth, when and what to use to encourage technical change; but most importantly the “why” .
Coaches will initially be coached by Jonas and the Speedworks Team, before coaching one another; with plenty of opportunities to get feedback and guidance.
This is a fully practical event but those unable to take part are welcome to get involved observing, and will have increased opportunities in the coaching breakouts.
