Publishers Description: The new edition combines both the art and science of coaching into a practical guide for intermediate and advanced level coaches. It provides updated information on the sport sciences, including anatomy, physiology, psychology, biomechanics and skill acquisition, which are vital for coaches in a range of sports. It features practical guidelines to develop athletes' endurance, speed, strength, power and flexibility, and also uses a range of case studies, examples and anecdotes to de-mystify some of the more technical sports science information. Coaching tips at the ends of each chapter summarize key messages from each chapter.
