How can you alter your styles of teaching to meet the demands of different practises and competitive situations for individual, racket, and team activities? Each teaching style is essential in relation with its sport as it provides the competitors with the right knowledge of skills, gives the correct feedback within the games as well as training; racket, individual and team activities need specific types of support and motivation as its essential for a good performance. Discovery This involves the teacher setting a task and getting the learners to create or discover the solutions; this approach links closely with Gestalt and whole approach to learning where the learners will develop a solution through insight and understanding. This type of teaching style lets the group to 'get on' by themselves and generally plays a passive role like laissez-faire. They do not interfere, either by directing or co-ordinating. They are generally unsure of the task they tend not to give any positive or negative feedback or evaluations. This type of teacher would be related to a relationship orientated leader as they focus more on developing and maintaining good interpersonal relationships rather than the task in question. ...read more.


This teaching style would suit a democratic leader as the whole group is involved and everyone feels they have made an impact within the team by providing feedback and introducing different techniques to help others. Reciprocal style is there to help, explain, and give appropriate feedback and encouragement by making sure the individuals understands the game in play so they can provide appropriate feedback to each other. The weakness of this teaching style is that the feedback given back from the students may be incorrect and unreliable, also that not everyone in the group gets individual attention and may not fix their faults during training until, a competition comes up and their faults are acknowledge but, its too late. This type of style suits a team sport such as football or netball; this is because a team has to be co-operative with each other and get along, in order to do so everyone must have their say on how to improve performance in training or within a game. It helps the players relationships grow and encourages feedback to each other during training and motivation within the game. ...read more.


During competitions, of course in racket sports they are not allowed to shout out during the performance so, they have limited time during the breaks, which is where the command style works best as they are able to give lots of correct, precise information in a short amount of time. In conclusion each style has their own weaknesses and advantages against each other, and its very important that the right teaching style is selected to get the best possible outcome from the performers because if the wrong teaching style is corrected it could have serious consequences on the performer, for example if a selection of beginners has a discovery style teacher then they may provide each other with the wrong feedback and solutions so, when the competition comes up then they will under perform or another example is if elite football players has a command style coach, that may be suited for beginners; they might start to under perform as they are given basic skills and knowledge rather than each giving their elite knowledge of tactics, skills and feedback.
