Really enjoying the guests , the subjects covered ... so logical , Fascinating and informative ... please keep them coming ..
Dan, your podcasts are great 👍 easy listening & with some fantastic guest from all sports which is really interesting!
I am a Football coach in the UK & the details from the other sports has been quite interesting I have always been amazed at the influence /impact psychology plays in sport even at youth development phase & I am totally with you when say the psychological/social corners should be the building blocks to any session planning & I start with these moving onto the tech/ Tactical-physical corners as I do really believe if my session is engaging with meaningful challenges then enjoyable the rest will easily be achieved!
I truly find the podcast fascinating & are helping me more & more in the massive field of sports psychology and the approach. I would love to hear some examples of professional sports people that needed your support in sports psychology or any of the guest and the way they helped, most coaches like myself always need advise dealing with young people who are struggling with confidence & what are the best support mechanisms that I could do as a coach to help ! Keep them coming Dan these have been great 👍
