The Art of Coaching
The Art of Coaching is a book on the principles that underline the Australian game of football. Based on David Wheadon's extensive career as an assistant coach at many AFL clubs, and with a primary focus on AFL, it is also a comparative study of the other sports around the world and the great similarities in the principles inherent to those sports and Australian football.The Art of Coaching draws heavily from Wheadon's personal experience, but is enhanced by conversations with some of the key leaders and coaching models during his time in football. No other book has gone deeper into the game of football to explore and define footy at the highest level. A practitioner's guide peppered with anecdotal evidence, it is also a fantastic resource for all coaches across all sporting codes, and thegeneral public.
