This section is aimed at those who are just kick starting their coaching career.
Things to remember:
* Plan your session - make sure it fits the kids you are coaching and know what you are coaching.
* Get to your session early and set up and be ready to go when your players arrive.
* Always start off by being and saying something positive to your players. Praise them.
* Tell them what will happen during the session ahead.
* Explain your drill, demonstrate the drill. Your players will remember more if you show them.
* Ask questions - see what they have learnt.

The idea is that in learning periods, what you remember most is what you hear at the beginning and the end. you increase retention by 40% by telling people what they've learned.
