What is more important, how you coach children or what you coach them?

It is imperative that a coach manufactures an environment where players become responsible for their own learning. Introducing games and constraints is an effective way of achieving learning outcomes. It encourages participants to search and find solutions to problems, thereby aiding the development of new skills. While this approach requires minimal hands-on involvement from the coach, their input is nonetheless critical in ensuring its success says Content Champion Dan Cottrell.
