The 90+ Project believes in an ATHLETE CENTERED Coaching Approach. Everything is oriented toward developing the child as a player and a person and the coaching philosophy has the training and learning centered on them.
A key to this approach is coaches having a set of well developed questions to ask the athlete. Asking open and probing questions leads to growth.
As a model the GROW approach to question asking can provide a sequence that coaches can use to develop the types of questions to ask:
G - What is your Goal? (what are you wanting to achieve etc)
R - Reality – what is happening now?
O - Options – what options do you have?
W- What Will you do now? – What are you going to do? (then loop around to the goal again)
Coacjhes, center your training on your athletes and ask good open ended questions for them to process and learn.
