Very well put, Nick. I think we have seen 'yelling and telling' all too often in gymnastics and I am happy to see an open conversation about giving athletes 'freedom to fail, without consequence' as you put it, taking place with young coaches coming through the system.

I am a Uni Lecturer in Coaching and I always tell my students to coach the person first - social coaching - and from that good things should happen be it improved confidence, motivation, skills or just more fun and engagement. I agree that there is too much shouting; my background is rugby and I have seen it only recently with some youth players. It seemed to me that the coach wanted to look impressive in front of the watching parents and to exert his authority....the looks on the players faces told the real story as they were yelled at to run another width of the pitch and do more press ups having dropped the ball....fun? What fun?!

If you are 'yelling and telling' all the time you are taking away from their learning experience. What happens when you do need to yell to emphasis a point or a safety issue? Your important feedback will ‘fall on deaf ears’. I think some times coaches yell just to remind everyone who the ‘leader’ or ‘boss’ is. Little do they know that they are creating performers that will struggle to perform outside of their current environment.

I hate yelling, I was once told years ago if I need yelling at I will go home for that. I find that I many schools I work in I hear teachers yelling no wonder children don't wish to continue there work.

By making Pe sessions fun, exciting you will have no reason to shout, some behaviour is due to boredom, lack of understanding, and lack of respect due to the shouting. If you need to Talk, sit them down and talk quietly and calmly.

You will get better performance from your athletes with a calmer and more controlled approach. Remember you was once a child. Put yourself back in there shoe's.
