Is your club developing the players' communication skills off-pitch? 🗣️
We've enjoyed following Jamie's progress (and many of his teammates who're playing representative rugby) since the tournament and it was great to see the interview with him and coach Roddy Deans on the Rosslyn Park National Schools Sevens website today.
Jamie is certainly one to look out for!
Jamie Dobie is a star of the future but has already written himself into one club’s history books. - In signing a professional contract for [...]
When Merchiston arrived at our Rosslyn Park National Schools Sevens tent in 2019, they told us they had a promising side. At the time, there were rumours Glasgow Warriors had enquired about one of their players. We obviously asked the Merchi coaching staff what they thought and they said he was indeed pretty talented...
"I feel lots of coaches get carried away with new and fangled ways! A coach’s role is to influence change and support the players."
🗣️We spoke with Karl Stagno of Whitgift School & Wimbledon Hockey Club in the third #CLCoachesCorner.
Karl Stagno is Director of Hockey at Whitgift School in Surrey, one of the most successful hockey schools in England, as well as head coach at Wimbledon Hockey Club.
I don’t get cranky anymore. New Zealand and the Crusaders buried all that. I have learned that connecting with people is the cornerstone of good coaching.
Bampouras, Cronin & Miller (2012) discovered that players were sceptical of performance analysis owing to being excluded from having an active role in the process.
If you played on Saturday and your coach hasn't given you access to the video it's almost too late! Get the video up as soon as possible and let everyone get involved.
The research went on to explain that the coach player relationship was important. Players can be sceptical if the coach takes control and spoon feeds them their thoughts.
Coaches in turn don't value player input because the current way they allow players to input is unbalanced (the players are asked for instant thoughts in the changing rooms or on the training pitch without time for consideration) and therefore doesn't work.
In summary, give your whole squad access to the video as quickly as you can. If an individual wants to conduct a thorough piece of analysis, they still can, but at least everyone is given a fair shot at watching the game and therefore not being put on the spot.

"A major factor to emerge from the research was that athletes need time to think about their responses. Asking a player to feedback on performance immediately after a game is likely to elicit a response that is wrought with emotion. Giving players time to reflect is important in the learning process.
A mixture of immediate feedback and delayed feedback allows for reflection and is proven to be the most suitable method for the majority of athletes."
How many times has your learning being more profound when given time to view, consider and feedback in your own time and environment rather than face-to-face at on a Saturday post match, wrought with emotion.

Will these stats about Gen Z influence your coaching?
Feel like you don't have the time for analysis this weekend? There's any solution. Spread the workload! Here's some ideas
Currie Chieftains have taken a new approach to reviewing matches this season. It's time-efficient and the results have been impressive.
🗣️ We have recently updated our tagline to #ConnectTheGame.
Here's the premise behind it the latest iteration that reflects where we, and our users, are now at:
Whether you are coach, player or official, the two major developments in team sports over the past few years have been communication and the use of video.
Sir Alex Ferguson:
"No one likes to be criticized. Few people get better with with criticism; most respond to encouragement instead. For a player - for any human being there is nothing better then hearing 'well done'. Encouragement feeds confidence which helps players grow".
Something to consider when you feedback on performance.
Karen Brown is GB and England’s second most capped hockey player and was assistant coach to the GB women’s hockey squad that won gold at the Rio Olympics. She now works as a coach mentor across a number of sports, working with male and female athletes. When we spoke with her last year she said:
“When it comes to encouraging an athlete to become engaged in the learning process and move the process from being one of ‘telling’ to one of active engagement then I think there are four influential factors.
The maturity and experience of the athlete is a primary factor, but you also have to look at the player’s relationship with the coach, his or her own curiosity and drive to succeed and, also, how others in the group learn. By that, I mean whether that player has seen his or her peers making improvements because of the way they have approached learning.
A coach has to understand each athlete’s own ‘map of the world’. Each player will have a unique view of their learning, their place in the team and their own ambitions. As a coach, you need to know your players well enough to understand their motivations.
A player gives feedback and the coach and athlete then have a robust conversation about that feedback. If the coach then agrees with the athlete’s feedback then yes they should act on it. If however, having fully discussed, they disagree with the issue then I would expect a coach to tell the athlete why they will not be acting on the feedback and give full explanation as to why not.
Any learning should be fun, challenging, engaging and worthwhile. If an athlete can see the benefits in analysis they will become engaged in process and curious to seek more solutions.
Team cohesiveness and team understanding is underpinned by a shared learning space in which athletes are set tasks and challenges, their learning is reviewed, reflected upon and then a new challenge is set. That’s how teams and individuals within those teams understand tactics and game plans.”

A research report prepared in 2016 examining Athlete Learning using Video concluded the points above.
All perfectly possible at your club. Why not try something new this year. A mentor system pairing up young and old? Split into small groups that don't often communicate and task with reviewing one theme from a match?

Birmingham Uni rugby, through their coach Tom Drewett, have a really nice set up for reviewing matches.
Each player has to individually find three positive moments from the match and three moments where they could have done better. The framing of this second part is vastly important - it's not moments from the match they did wrong, it's work-ons or things they may have done differently had they a second chance.
Each player sends their clips to either the full coaching team or one member of the coaches. There's a subsequent discussion, which can be detailed or just a thumbs up acknowledgement.
The coach is thus able to see common themes in the players' heads and from there can feedback in a more team-wide basis. As a coach it means you don't have to go through the whole entire game again as well!
One to try with your squad, especially if you have students who are set for developing themselves and have time on their side.

DISCOVER. DISTIL. DO
3D Learning according to Clive Woodward...
“I call it 3D Learning. Discover. Distil. Do.
Take Scrum Defence as an example. You have a scrum, how are you going to defend the scrum? The discover is we’re going to get all this information in from all 12 clubs and all the players. You’re constantly learning what the information actually means, what it entails. The most important thing in this process is when you’ve got all this discover how do you distil it, the second D?
What’s all the stuff we’ve learnt? What are the keys points? It needs to be three or four bullet points. It’s got to be in simple English, and everyone must be able to understand it. That’s the real art. You never stop discovering or learning and you can change these key points.
The Third D is Do. Once we know our key points so an example could be line speed in defensive scrums. How do we do it better than anybody else? How do we do it, how do we practice it, how do we train it? How does it become a real part of what we do?
The Do is really important and also allows us to become quite creative. How does a player do this off his own back garden when he’s with his kids? How can you still be practicing stuff when you’re away from the training paddock?"
Totally transferable to your match review. Can you locate three or four bullet points on one theme? Anymore and you're probably diluting the core learnings and affecting uptake of the intended learning points.
It doesn't have to be as many as three or four as well! It's something to think about if you've been tasked with looking at an area from the match such as scrum defence.
New Year. New Video Player. New Features to play around with!
What's your favourite?

Listening to @matthewsyedauthor on Success being a Journey.
Here’s what he had to say:
“We see as consumers, as overseers, as spectators, the end performance. We see David Beckham knocking a free-kick into the net from 30 yards. It doesn’t seem like a journey, it just seems like a detonation of genius. The guy’s a natural. Look how fluent and coordinated he is, we could never do that.
Or we see James Dyson’s dual-cyclone vacuum cleaner and we think what a clever device. Dyson must be a creative genius. Or if we see any piece of technology we only see the final product.
What we don’t see is the Beckham as a boy in his back garden only able to do three keepie-uppies as a six year old, but practicing, making mistakes, losing football matches, dusting himself down, learning the lessons, practicing with passion. There was a long, long period where he had setbacks - he was sent-off, he was vilified by the nation. He came through it, part of the journey.
Dyson went through 5,126 prototypes. Every single failure he’s learning more about separation, efficiency, air-flow dynamics. He didn’t see it as a reason to give up. He saw it as 'wow, we’re learning so much more about what we really matters in creating this machine.'
I think young people who see success as a journey navigate their way through life, through education, through sport, through their occupation in a totally different way. They don’t try to avoid difficult experiences, they embrace them. They see them as learning opportunities. If they have a set-back they don’t think ‘my god I’m going to give up’. They think I wonder if someone could help me with that so I can learn faster and better?”
How does this relate to Coach Logic?
Video is, and always will be, an amazing learning opportunity.
What’s your mindset?
Embrace what you can learn or just watch it because Coach says so?

Players & Teammates > Coaches > Business Partners and still going strong.
Another year flown by with Coach Logic!
It was brilliant to be invited to the Rugby World Cup in Japan and present our work alongside England Rugby this year.
We've continued to strengthen partnerships with other Governing Bodies such as Euro Hockey, the FIH and The FA as well.
We couldn't do it however without the 5,000 active users we have each month who use Coach Logic for their club, school, university, or even just on an individual basis.
We've a long list of exciting things coming in the New Year to make the platform better, including a new look.
If you're a Coach Logic user, or follower of what we're trying to achieve, or indeed both, then thank you!

Mark and Andy were the first ever Rex Club journal interviewees!
They spoke about the process of running a business and their unique approach to player development from grassroots all the way up to elite performance.
They also discuss throwing family life and their own coaching into that mix!

Among the most successful sports at Whitgift School, South Croydon are the hockey, rugby and football teams.
We spoke to three coaches, one from each sport, and discovered each had their own way of using technology to develop players.
Whitgift School in Surrey is a renowned sporting school, regularly featuring as winners of national titles. We discuss the use of technology within their sports' programmes.
In the summer we visited Whitgift School and spoke with Eugene Martin and two of the players; Niall McGann and Ben Fitzgerald.
It has been quite a year for Whitgift Rugby and in the video they speak about the role Coach Logic has played in making it happen.
Back in 2013 we ran a competition to send a promising player to New Zealand in association with Inside Running Academy.
The player we ended up choosing and flying across to New Zealand was Ewan Bulger.
Fast forward to the present day and Ewan starts tomorrow for Marr Rugby in a top-of-the-table crunch match against Mark's Currie Chieftains.
Marr must be confident as they have named Andrew Muir on their bench! (https://www.marrrugby.com/news/prematch--chieftains-versus-marr--2495040.html).
We caught up with James Wade, Head Coach of OURFC Blues, ahead of the The Varsity Match tomorrow at Twickenham Stadium.
We wish his team well and hope the whole squad enjoy the day!
