To me coaching is all about connections. In training my goal is always to facilitate connections of the various parts of the body. Connecting the foot to the knee, the knee to the hip, the hip to the shoulder the shoulder to the elbow and the wrist. Help the athlete to make these connections consciously at first and subconsciously as skills are automated. These connections are there, they need to be exploited. In assessment and evaluation look for connections, identify them and in remedial exercise facilitate the connections. Connect exercises and drills in training with the competition. Without connections it is just work, mindless movement without purpose. Movement is connecting, teaching and coaching is connecting and reconnecting.
