Human evolution has taught us how human beings have developed in general. In particular, the human brain has evolved based on certain evolutionary principles. Recently, Raymond Verheijen has translated these principles to the football context which resulted in the Football Coach Evolution Model. During this course coaches will learn about the six underlying football evolutionary principles. This understanding will allow the coach to develop the following abilities:
- Reference Thinking: how to develop objective knowledge references on and off the pitch;
- Situation Coaching: how to design situations to trigger the desired unconscious player behavior on and off the pitch;
- Reference Coaching: how to transfer objective references from the coach brain to the player brain to develop self-regulating players and teams.
During the course these abilities will be illustrated with practical examples using clips of specific situations.
