Event description

Description

Good decision-making is essential for performance in hurling but can be difficult to coach, particularly when trying to use direct coaching and explaining to players what to do. Players in hurling games constantly have to make decisions that depend upon a range of factors such as the team strategy, the stage of the game and the specific nature of the precise moment when the decision has to be made. Good decision making in Games often involves being aware of and adapting to a changing and dynamic environment. This means that developing and improving decision-making requires some replication of match conditions in training.

The aim of the course is to use games as a teaching medium:

  • Introduce games for promoting decision making, anticipation, attention, and perception. to develop creative and intelligent performers
  • Encourage different forms of communication amongst team members (e.g. visual as well as verbal).
  • Understanding games for learning with the emphasis shifting from the technical to the tactical & better team play
  • Activities to develop critical thinking and problem solving.
