Given the challenges in increasing activity levels of the population, an important factor in enhancing lifelong adherence to sport and physical activity are the early sporting experiences of children. To this end, coaching practice needs to be based on a principled application of motor learning theory. Current research using interceptive cricket actions as the task vehicle has demonstrated that movements are tightly coupled to information. These findings provide support for the constraint-led model proposed by Newell (1986) and highlight the need to develop learning approaches that adopt a more hand-off approach than traditional coaching.
