Reviewing research into what keeps good young players in the game
Dan Cottrell caught up with Jonny McMurtry of coachingthecoaches.net to talk about his current research.
Having been involved in high-performance age-grade rugby programs across Australia for nearly 10 years, he is currently completing research in conjunction with the University of Queensland and Rugby Australia, looking at age-grade player’s engagement and understanding what motivates, engages and drives players’ participation.
In the podcast, they explore some of his findings and align it to coaching. They pick out how individuals can sit within a team structure, what makes for a happy player in a high-pressured environment and why conversations have different outcomes depending on which position is played.
Drawing on their own lived experiences, Dan and Jonny delve into motivation and coaching styles.
Jonny is an experienced rugby coach and NLP practitioner. He has worked extensively with the ARU to develop coaching and player experiences.
