Deliberate practice refers to a special type of practice that is purposeful and systematic. While regular practice might include mindless repetitions, deliberate practice requires focused attention and is conducted with the specific goal of improving performance.

 

From <https://jamesclear.com/deliberate-practice-theory>

 

In swim lessons:

 

  • Rotation Method
  • Activity, activity, game (resetting interest and play vs. thoughtful time)
  • High volume, constant feedback; always be talking
  • Fun and effective games; approaching practice sideways
    • Games that have a challenge require thought to accomplish task, may be linked to swimming skill, but fun will trick them into trying harder.
  • Standard language
  • Trust
  • Few skills, but deep skills
    • Glides / streamline
    • Crawl, but side breathing

 

Swim team:

  • 3 x SL + something
  • Repetition
  • Focus keys: 3 things for sl, 3 for position 11, 3 for better swimming; goals.
  • Excellence with feedback
  • Looking for thumbs ups.
  • Challenges beyond skill demonstration; question of the day -> engagement
  • Strive for perfection
