integrated training, skill development, high-performance, holistic approach


This paper discusses integrated coaching, an approach which stems from the theory that expert performance is predicated on the different game aspects (physical, psychological, technical and tactical) being used instinctively and together by the athlete, and that therefore the best way to create expert skills and performance is to train these aspects together. Practical examples and case studies are discussed.
