Reducing the learning curve for kids in sports

To help kids reduce the learning curve in sports, they need to master one step at a time, one progression at a time. Today’s parents and youth coaches like to cram in so much instruction in one session, they actually hamper kids learning. Kids develop paralysis thru analysis after just a couple of instructions, they shut down and actually regress than progress. Paid coaches at clinics and ongoing coaching centers fall into this trap as much as the parents. They want to justify to you the amount of money you’re paying them, and they want to show you how much they know about the sport to impress you, that they try and teach kids everything at once, leaving the kids dazed and confused. There’s a reason teachers teach the abc’s before reading and simple addition before calculus. Sports are no different, kids learn faster mastering one step at a time.
