    Absolutely brilliant stuff. Both parts, [1 and 2], should be watched by all coaches, from beginner to established.
    A refreshing and inspiring perspective.

    No coach is above the reflective value of these presentations.

    Agree with Ron. I’ve watched parts 1 and 2 numerous times - they are the most important video set on here.  I’d further recommend looking into Kelvin Giles’s (I think a mentor of Phils) “An Introduction to Athlete Development” - you can find it through the Movement Dynamics website.
