Only motivated coaches can produce motivated learners Csikszentihali (1997). Netball session (see appendix four) this session was planned well and progressed in a steady flow. Not many participants kept an interest in this sport mainly the male participants this is because of their experience they have mainly seen females taking part in this sport.

Most athletes are already highly motivated and therefore the task is to maintain that motivation and make the training sessions exciting and enthusiastic.. Watching a different range of coaching practices help you learn different sessions and different coaching style which can help you with ideas for any future sessions you may what to run. There is no correct way to coach many factors come into what makes a good coach and a competent coach has many qualities and should be able to cater for the individual needs of people in the session 7. ...read more.
