The Skills of Teaching Skill:
There is a skill to teaching skills, in this opening section of the Workshop, I want to dig into the best skills and specific strategies that I learned about teaching skill that may improve your skill set
Practice Design Strategies to Improve Organic Skill Development
Team practices reveal opportunities to create dual development team and individual skill development, what are the specific ways we can be intentional about building both? In this module, I’ll explore different drill design, drill rule formats and how to use undercurrents to build massive rep counts to organically provide your team with a dual development opportunity.
Talent, Skill and our Role in Influencing the Achievement Gap
The achievement gap is something I never hear anything about, but it is a critical element to skill development. In this section, I’ll detail my thoughts on how we can avoid perpetuating the achievement gap in small area games. I’ll also dive into where talent and skill intersect and where are sweet spot is for development.
For the on-ice demonstration, I’ll go though examples of all three of the modules we revealed so far in the workshop, with a practical illustration of each.
- Day 2
Skill Analysis and On-Ice Feedback
To open Day 2, I want to explore the personal side of skill development in both individual skill analysis and an outline of how I use on-ice feedback to build a development relationship with each of the athletes
Connecting the 3 Skill Speeds
The iconic Anatoli Tarasov detailed the 3 Skill Speeds of Hockey (skating, hand speed and speed of mind), the interdependence on each skill speed in terms of skill projection has been a 20 year focus of mine. I’ll detail how these skills speeds can be developed in unison and why if they aren’t we create skill gaps. My goal is to affect your attitude towards skill isolation.
Training to Game Transfer Process
In the last module, I’ll detail how training to game transfer works and practical strategies to reduce the time it takes for players to transfer.
The on-ice demonstration will be a practical exploration of all three Day 2 modules
