Coaching Science: Theory into Practice bridges the gap between theoretical sport science texts and practical coaching books. It is the first interdisciplinary coaching science textbook to integrate both theory and practice and, most important, to show how theory informs practice. The book examines the interaction between the coach, the performer and the task and provides the reader with the necessary science to conduct practice sessions, get athletes fit and prepare them for competition. The book is divided into six parts covering: philosophy and ethics; socio-psychological factors; the psychology of skill acquisition; physiological factors; developmental factors; and integrated factors. Each chapter provides a summary, a variety of examples and problems together with suggestions for further reading. Written by authors with many years teaching, research and practical coaching experience Coaching Science will prove invaluable to students in sport science, coaching science and physical education taking a first course in coaching science and/or coaching studies. This will be the latest title in the Wiley SportTexts Series
