Coaching Knowledges

Too often coaching is seen by sports science students as mechanistic and prescriptive. What a coach does in training and on the sidelines, however, is far more complex and involved than simply setting exercises and drills. Effective coaching requires a range of ‘knowledges’, from the pedagogical to the sociological, physiological and psychological. In this book teachers, lecturers and coaches from Bath University’s ‘Team Bath’ coaching and teaching faculty look at how various ‘knowledges’ influence every coach’s daily practices.
