Shannon's coaching lesson this week is teaching the game using the “Whole, Part, Whole” method. We present the game as a whole, break it down into pieces to teach, and then put it all together as a whole again for competition. We do that over and over again, week by week teaching “pieces” within the game. Shannon explains that individual work must be done specific to every position: FW, DEF, G and that it’s important to work “specialty sessions” into some of your practices on a regular basis. The sidebar is 5 Tips for Being a Great Mentor: Helping positively shape someone’s development is one of the most rewarding things we can do. As mentors we don’t always have the right answers, but we can act as a sounding board and guide for the mentees, and encourage them to find their own answers.
