Education of a Skill

Skill Concepts

These are the types of concepts and skills that the players will use in the fundamental and skill concept portions of the practice. These can be plugged into either depending on whether the players have learned the concept or are seeing it for the first time. Furthermore, the assessments of the games will be plugged into the fundamental concept after a recap with the coaches and Charlie to plug into the practice plan. Skills can be added and addressed after the concepts on this document are achieved and are able to be regularly executed. Finally, any concept that the players are taught can be readdressed in the fundamental portion of practice. Regular conversations are crucial between the coaches and Charlie so we can effectively plan out practices.
