DECISION MAKING


This blog is taken from an article summary I read by cricket coach Paddy Upton, who lead India to the 2011 World Cup and also the #1 ranking in test cricket around the same time.

It's all about why coaching is about encouraging players to take responsibility and helping them understand what is best for them.

Here's what I took down from it:

- In high pressure moments, DM is more important than skill.

- Create your tram based on strengths, personal preferences learning styles etc so get this info from your players.

- Don't preach fear of failure or fear of repercussion of failure as then players will not try that skill again and it can halt mental/physical development.

- A coach needs to remove a fear of failure

- Don't focus on stopping the opposition because then you're asking your players to do things they might not be very good at in high pressure situations and you're essentially setting them up to fail.

- Instead work to their strengths and find what they are comfortable doing in high pressure situations.

- In high pressure situations it will be the quality of the decision made under that pressure that will get you in trouble rather then actual skill itself as the skills are practiced repeatedly, but high pressure situations might only occur rarely.

- Hypoxic underwater breath holding is one of the most direct feedback mechanisms you can experience because as soon as you feel out of breath the first thing that happens is a natural hiccup like a spasm in the stomach, you panic and then hold your breath for that amount of time repeatedly before panic sets in.

- As soon as you panic, then you worry, then you overthink, you leave the present and your body forces you to lift your head up but if you keep calm and stay in the present then you'll stay under for longer so it's actually a mental thing that makes you lift your head out, not a physical thing.

- Provide all the resources for the players and give them responsibility for preparation, performance and recovery and you as coach get them in the right frame of mind to carry it out
