Abstract

For the first time, this book applies The Spectrum to sports coaching to become a Spectrum of Coaching Styles. The non-versus approach to pedagogy taken by The Spectrum places athletes or players at the centre of their learning and clearly defines who (player or coach) is making pedagogical decisions in each style. This clarity allows players and coaches to have their teaching behaviours and decision-making clearly defined, and it provides a common language for players, coaches and practitioners to talk about coaching styles and the expected outcomes. For coaches interested in the holistic development of the player/athlete, The Spectrum provides a detailed framework for achieving multiple learning outcomes through cognitive, social, physical, ethical, emotional and social development.

Written by coaches for coaches, this book applies Spectrum theory in a coach-specific/friendly way to the following:

Introduction to The Spectrum and the sport coach as educator;

Summary and detailed description of the 11 coaching styles and their suitability to particular types of coaching episodes;

Outlines of the strengths of each style with application examples; and

Explanations of coaching to develop reflective practice, self-analysis and error correction, how to coach players to decide on appropriate practice levels or challenge points, player problem solving and solution generation ability.

The Spectrum of Sport Coaching Styles is important reading for coaches, athletes, students and lecturers of sports coaching across any sport.
