Based on his newly released book, The Language of Coaching, Nick Winkelman takes you on a practical journey through the world of coaching science and the intersection between a coach's words and their client's movement. If you agree that how you coach is as important as what you coach, then you're not going to want to miss this. Attendees will learn:

  • the intersection between attention and learning,
  • the impact of coaching language and cueing on motor skills learning, and
  • an evidence-based model for crafting cues that support movement performance and coordination.
