I always try to acknowledge achievements and success. It could be a junior golfer that connects perfectly for the first time. I just love the reaction and look of surprise on their wee faces. You just know that’s the time to celebrate. Other smaller seemingly less significant achievements are when they swing beautifully but miss hit the ball. A set of dejected shoulders can suddenly be transformed when you acknowledge it. No celebration but worthy of a comment to maintain focus and encourage. Identifying a struggling student and stepping in to give advice and spend time reinforcing coaching points is equally beneficial. If success is achieved a thumbs up, low key positive comment or praise can work wonders. The article is so correct to point out that despite wanting them all to succeed at every session it’s just not possible. If praise is given willy nilly it makes all of the special significance of achievements seem undervalued

Celebrating the small successes, even with just a high five or a that's looks great or that looks better can be organic. It can happen as you go. Remembering the 80/20 rule is important. Most of what you tell an athlete needs to be encouragement the other can be correction. I highlight correction and instruction over criticism. There is a difference. Telling someone you know your approach to that ball was great. You need to follow through and the ball will go exactly where you want it. This is very different from criticism. That looks more like, " you didn't' follow through and that is why you can't get the ball on target." You are giving the same correction but the person or child receiving the information is likely hearing two different things. Make sure to notice the success first give the instruction/correction next. Move on and encourage.
