Physical Education: Stop Listening to Performance Coaches


Jacques Piasenta helped develop world class athletes in France for decades, and his Physical Education background is a huge component of that. Lately we are seeing a lot of powerpoint slides of gurus talking about talking. Cues, magic words, internal and external influences? Don’t believe the hype. Instead of listening to people who are filtering their impression of coaching, listen to those that develop athletes and a good foundation is physical education. Not health education, but getting children to be more educated, not just having them move better with a few drills or skills. When I was in college I went the more adult side with the department of physical education, exercise, and wellness. I was slightly jealous of those on the physical education side because they were getting to work with kids and getting experience I thought was foundational. When getting education, choose wisely and leave the magic word people for others.
