Personal Best: 166, 9 dart finish.

Interesting practice today. The value of the practice session was definitely consolidation rather than challenge. I was surprised to do a personal best today for the 9 dart challenge.

So I’m trying to get better at darts. I’m experimenting with all the concepts that guide me when coaching children in athletics. I’m trying to learn more about practice through my own experimentation, so that I can create better practice for the children I coach in athletics.

Guiding concepts:
– Randomised vs Blocked Practice.
– Implicit Learning.
– Mastery (Growth Mindset – Dweck) – Love Challenge, intrigued by mistakes and enjoy the effort.
– Lots of Practice (Doing)
– Deliberate Practice / Deliberate Play
– Feedback
– Performance before Competence
– Pleasantly Frustrating
– Challenge and Consolidate
– Clearly defined Goals

Did a personal best today: 87, 9-dart finish.

Surrey Youth Games – Fiona’s story.

Surrey Youth Games – Fiona Manning. Listen to Fiona talk about the Surrey Youth Games – “Fun”. (Approx. 6 minutes).

The Surrey Youth Games is an amazing opportunity to learn a new sport for free. Last year I chose to learn squash for Surrey Youth Games. I had 7 lessons and was picked for the team, even though I was a beginner. Going to the tournament was fun but slightly scary! I felt amazing when I won my first match, and it was even better when our team got the bronze medal. I think everyone should sign up for Surrey Youth Games, even if you haven’t done the sport before, because it’s a great opportunity to get active and find a sport that you may enjoy.
