Dsc 01 Discus COACHING with images

Coaches have to talk to their athletes, but it is not always that easy. You may think that you have explained an idea very clearly, but for some reason, the athlete has not understood and gets it wrong. So, like in many other situations: A GOOD IMAGE IS BETTER THAN A LONG EXPLANATION . An image can often ‘talk’ to the athlete better than the coach if it is well chosen. Nearly all coaches have their own ‘talking images’. Here are some which have proved to be quite effective. Some I have found myself but, more often, have ‘stolen’ from other coaches! The following set of images (”Crush the cigarette butt”, ”open the door” , ”jump the creek” , ”do the pissing dog” etc…) cover nearly all phases of the throw and should be of great help for both coaches and athletes and not only the beginners.
