Curious Coaches' Club: Coaching Using Games

Jack Rolfe from the Coaching Lab and Darren Lamon from Sale Sharks Academy discuss the use of games principles in coaching

It’s the question we possibly get asked most as coaches and leaders of sport & physical activity: but really, when are we going to play a game?

In this session, Jack Rolfe from the Coaching Lab and Darren Lamon from Sale Sharks Academy navigate the use of games principles in coaching.

They explore:

  • supporting players to explore and learn
  • encouraging creative thinking and problem-solving
  • creating environments for players to grow individually.

What is the Curious Coaches' Club?

Each week, the Curious Coaches Club brings experts together for a weekly coaching conversation
