Von Sonntag zu Sonntag😄. „Mini-Ballschule für Kindergarten“ in Tübingen (Württembergischer Tennisbund, Weiterbildung für Trainer*innen mit DTB-Lizenz) zu „Neue Wege im Tennistraining“ in Regensburg (Bayerischer Tennisverband, Weiterbildung für Trainer*innen mit DTB-Lizenz). So spannend!
Nick hat Sportwissenschaft in Mainz studiert und macht Parkour. Er beschreibt übersichtlich und einfach, warum differentielles Lernen Vorteile gegenüber den traditionellen methodischen Reihen hat, Nicht nur im Parkour, sondern auch in allen anderen Sportarten.
This is a slide from the presentation „New ways in coaching tennis and other sports“ by Frercks Hartwig.
Aus der Präsentation „Neue Wege im Training….“ von Frercks Hartwig, TMS Coaching
Following the principles of differential learning and the constraints led approach, we can change the constraints without repeating them the next practice. Regular variation without repetition and the trust in new studies about motor learning gives the coaches and the players more than a handful of various drills. This one is about changing constraints by starting from unusual points in the tennis field. This requires adaptation to all players and opens doors to new solutions of game situations.
Interview in der Südwest-Presse mit TMS Coach Frercks Hartwig über Neue Wege im Tennistraining.
This is from Nick Jacques Tennis. Nice ideas for a constraints led approach (CLA). This already shows the difference between CLA and differential learning (DL). In the CLA the intention and the plan for the development of the skills is an idea of the coach („avoiding backswing“). In a DL approach the coach also offers different situations (like those in this video). But the solution is in the responsibility of the player, not in the responsibility of the coach!
Both approaches are implicit, but there is an important difference in the attitude to the learning athlet. While the coach in the CLA drill has a goal (backswing), the DL coach knows and intends nothing. The system „player“ is a black box and there is no expectation in the long term development of individual skills. The examples in Nicks CLA are in DL only one possible solution for the motion and will not be repeated.
Thx to Nick for the nice ideas 😀. I love his quote: „I have no influence over this as I am still with very little noise from me.“
“ 3 constraint led approach drills that have helped reduce the size of my students take back. Lillian has previously been taught a large loop on her take back which has isolated her upper body from her lower body, making it very hard for her to adapt to the many different balls she would need to cope with in a match situation. Lillian has made great improvements on her coordination, here are a few key exercises that have helped her progress. Note how Lillian is intrinsically motivated as the exercises engages her and draws out the effort, you can see I have no influence over this as I am still with very little noise from me 🤗 „
„If a child gets told what to look for when playing, then his attention is narrowed. It then only looks at a smaller situation and becomes blind to the rest of the game.“ (Klaus Roth, etc. in Mini Ball School, The ABC of playing)
