'A method I used to monitor my progress was coach feedback.'
'My coach gave me verbal feedback during and immediately after each session. They told me what I was doing well and areas I needed to improve. Feedback they gave me during the session tended to be given in short and sharp bursts. At the end of the session, we had a more detailed conversation where I was told why something was good and how I could improve an error. We then used this to help me set my next steps and short-term goal for the next session.'

'It is important that your coach gives you positive feedback before negative feedback. This is because you will initially get a confidence boost when hearing the things you did well which can lead to you feeling better and more inclined to listen to your coaches suggestions on how to improve your performance meaning you can then make these changes in your next session.'

'It is also important that your coach tells you how to improve an area of development. This is because it will help you see how you can improve your performance which can then lead to you setting specific short-term goals in your next session and really focusing on certain areas in your approaches to help you progress.'

'Moreover, it is important that your coach gives you feedback in short and sharp bursts during sessions. This is because it will be easy for you to understand and you can then make immediate changes during training to stop you developing bad habits.'

'Finally, it is important that your coach provides you with various forms of feedback. This is because visual feedback in the form of a video can help support the verbal feedback they give you meaning you can clearly understand what they mean and see the areas you need to correct in your performance which can then help you in your next session as you will know at what points you need to make the changes.'
