Decision Training

Decision Training is an approach to coaching that increases the opportunities your athletes have to make decisions in training similar to those encountered in competition (i.e. games). The underlying premise to this approach is that coaches create learning environments and employ tasks that develop creativity, attention, anticipation, problem-solving and other mental skills required to perform at a higher level.

HEO's Bill Bowker has developed a 3-on-3 Cross Ice Model designed to emphasise Decision Training. This model is based on the principles of Small Area Game play...reduce the space and increase the speed of decision making. However, a key component of Bill's model is the implementation of rules or decision making requirements that direct the 3-on-3 cross ice game away from "shinny" and toward a decision making environment.

Watch the video below to see an example of the 3-on-3 Cross Ice Model Bill has developed and how the use of rules drive the decision makeing and learning.
