Following on from last post there I cant help myself now!
While I take over the world and save us all from mediocrity in sport. I do not want to hear about Relative Age Effect in sport still happening! We need to be better than this. If you are a coach and I find this out when I am king of the world, you will be sent somewhere sh*t and will have to do sh*t things!
I have just endured another review of RAE and the physiological implications on talent identification, if you only pick the big kids, I will not have you in my kingdom. What we must do is give the coaches the confidence, skills, and scope to work with all athletes for long term rewards.
on another note, a little more intellectual, just read this article, good read and good challenge of Balyi's LTAD without going overboard. Enjoy.
