What It Really Means To ‘Think Outside The Box’: Why Foucault Matters For Coach Development

Jim Denison

writing that melds expression and theory can become a method for learning and a means for change ( Denison, 2016 ); this is how writing can become a coach development strategy, particularly when Foucault’s ( 1995 ) analysis of discipline services the theory.

Transformational Coaching Workshop: Applying a Person-Centred Approach to Coach Development Programs

Jennifer Turnnidge and Jean Côté

It is well established that coach learning and athlete outcomes can be enhanced through participation in Coach Development Programs (CDPs). Researchers advocate that the quality of CDPs can be improved by: (a) placing a greater emphasis on facilitating coaches’ interpersonal behaviours (Lefebvre, Evans, et al., 2016), (b) using appropriate and systematic evaluation frameworks to guide the evaluation of interpersonally-focused CDPs (Evans et al., 2015), and (c) incorporating behaviour change theories into the design and implementation of these CDPs (Allan et al., 2017). In doing so, the relevance of CDP content and the uptake of this content among coaching practitioners may be enhanced. Transformational leadership theory provides a valuable guiding framework for designing CDPs that aim to promote positive development in youth sport. Thus, the goal of the present paper is to outline the development of a novel, evidence-informed CDP: The Transformational Coaching Workshop and to provide practical strategies for the implementation of this workshop.

Athlete and Coach Development in the Sevilla Club de Fútbol Youth Academy: A Values-Based Proposition

Antonio Solana-Sánchez, Sergio Lara-Bercial, and David Solana-Sánchez

Professional youth football (soccer) academies face a number of challenges related to the contrasting and at times competing nature of their goals. Marrying long-term development of players with success in youth competitions and combining the development of young people as athletes with their growth as human beings are some examples. Professional football clubs and those tasked with leading their academies have to make key decisions as to how these challenges will be addressed. In this paper we argue that those decisions must be made based on a clearly shared philosophy and accompanying set of values. We present some of the key principles governing the work of the Sevilla Club de Fútbol Youth Academy and the rationale behind them. These principles span from developmental, methodological and pedagogical choices to the building of an internal long-term approach to coach development.
