Training Intelligence: Course Review

Every coach seeks intelligent players. But how do we develop them? Traditional training has fallen short. Emphasis on the physical maturity of our players has missed the mark and intelligence has been banished to the sidelines. It may be time to rethink and redesign talent development.

If we are to nurture our player’s capacity to play this game well, we should design our trainings to develop cognition, competence, and character. We will examine the limitations of traditional training and introduce a new paradigm for talent development.

By exploring the material presented here, we hope that you are inspired to question assumptions. We also hope that you may wrestle with alternative ideas as to how we may approach holistic talent development with an emphasis on training intelligence.
