    *Presenter asks the participants to write down one sentence answer to the above question*Four stages of learning 1 Ignorance (we dont know what we dont know) 2 Conscious Ignorance (we realise the mistakes we make) 3 Awareness ( we can do things) 4 Phronesis ( we can do things without thinking about them and under the greatest pressure).

    Tutor Explains these and then starts a discussion on the level of input coaches should have at each stage.

    Thinking is that it is minimal to start with then increases in stage 2 before falling off again**The four stages of sporting development. Most coaches start at the bottom and work up. There needs to be an holistic approach**Tutor explains how skill is a combination of decision making and technique. The two should be trained hand in hand.We now break for a practical session in the hall*Four stages of learning 1 Ignorance (we dont know what we dont know) 2 Conscious Ignorance (we realise the mistakes we make) 3 Awareness ( we can do things) 4 Phronesis ( we can do things without thinking about them and under the greatest pressure).

    Tutor Explains these and then starts a discussion on the level of input coaches should have at each stage.

    Thinking is that it is minimal to start with then increases in stage 2 before falling off again*An example of how each player needs to be treated differently**Section on how the game is the coach

    Tutor asks those who have participated in the game to write down what they did for the practical periodMany people think they need to re-invent the wheel at every training session. Dont be afraid to copy games and use resources. The games can then be adapted to suit your needs.

    The main question to ask is does the game meet my intended learning outcome?. What techniques are required to play the game successfully?*These are just some of the skills used in the game we played in the hall*The tutor explains that once the tutor has their desired ILO then they should consider the following with regard to designing the game.

    Size of pitch Is it appropriate to the skill being taughtNumber of players per teamWhere to place the goals. Or what is the goal/aim?Try to keep as hockey like as possibleHow do you explain game to players? Use of visual aids*Ask people for some of their answers*
