Question here on coaching technique. For reference, DD is 10 years old and training L4. I notice at our gym some coaches are more hands-on for athletes as far as moving their limbs in correct position, or the coach will demonstrate the body position themselves. Other coaches rely more on verbal instruction. Does the hands-on make a difference? I feel like this is an obvious question, but we just lost our HC who was very experienced and was hands-on with the girls, so I'm watching some of the new interim coaches who have a different style. Also, I notice some of the coaches give lot more verbal feedback than others. Guess I'm a little nervous the HC left (she left for personal reasons)--she was someone who I felt like who knew her stuff. Management is currently interviewing for a new JO HC. What are signs of good coaching short of watching the team scores at meets? Right now, most of the girls are performing well in their respective age groups.
