Kelvin Giles (Movement Dynamics): Who's developing the Coaches?

Kelvin Giles is a legend in Strength and Conditioning. A former UK National and Olympic Track and Field Coach, he spent 30 years in Australia’s High Performance Sport environment across organisations including the Australian Institute of Sport, Queensland Academy of Sport, the Canberra Raiders and the Brisbane Broncos. He also led the Australian Rugby Union Elite Player Development program. He’s coached 14 Olympic and World Champions athletes over a 40 year career in coaching. He is the CEO of Movement Dynamics UK Ltd and consults for a range of National Governing Bodies and Federations. He also authored the Physical Competency Assessment resources.

In this episode, Kelvin discusses:

  • His incredible 40 year career in coaching in the UK/Australia and the influence of mentors.

  • Why training should be athlete-appropriate before sport-appropriate.

  • Quality vs Quantity and "Flirting" with the progression ceiling.

  • Why we should train the physical, technical, tactical in that order.

  • Why coach development is the limitation to athlete development.

  • Why coach mentoring should start the day you get your coaching award.

  • Explicit and Implicit coaching

  • Why patience is so important in coaching.
