4 Types of Players:
- Unconscious & Incompetent: These types of players “don’t know that they don’t know.” They aren’t even aware that they don’t have a feel for the game. These players aren’t going to contribute on a winning team.
- Conscious & Incompetent: These players now realize that “they know they don’t have it.” These players still don’t have a feel for the game and are lacking in the skill department but they realize where their weaknesses are and can now begin to improve Awareness is the beginning of correction.
- Conscious & Competent: At this level of development, the player is able to perform various skills (competent), but he / she must think about everything that he is doing before performing the skill; i.e. catch the ball, go into triple threat, direct drive, etc. You know, but you don’t flow. Very robotic.
- Unconscious & Competent: The most difficult level to reach, this player can perform the skills without having to think about them. For this type of player, the game naturally “flows.”
