By Keith Grabowski | Posted 11/2/2018

This week in the Smart Coaching series, Keith Grabowski, Dr. Gearity and Dr. Kuklick discuss praxis. This part of the season teams start to put up the pads and start to reflect. The doctors define praxis as mixing the technical and tactical with the theoretic in sport. After getting a basic understanding, they explain how this can help in the reflection for coaches and problem solving going forward. They harp at the need to do research in an array of sources to gain knowledge and understanding through integration.
