Coaching Matters: Around the web December 2016 Week 1


Coaching Matters goes weekly now, a round-up of the articles I have found interesting in the past week relating to coaching, sport science, physical preparation and skill acquisition. 

Of note this week is that Rob Pacey of Pacey Performance has revamped his website and content under the banner of Strength of Science.  Rob has been producing very high quality podcasts with excellent standard of guests for just under 3 years and has now brought in some new features to his offering. Of particular interest is Audio Abstracts where he discusses research papers with the authors giving context and their own words to the scientific papers.  I think this is a great idea and helps bring research to life so definitely worth checking out –

The whole point of this blog is sharing and interaction so if you have written or know of similar content that would be good for future posts then please let me know via Twitter @SiNainby.

Don’t forget to check out the Coaching Matters Live Round Up Tool, all the previous Coaching Matters blogs, my Notes From blogs of various lectures/CPD I have attended and various random thoughts on coaching.
