Then what about cueing and how often it should be done? I probably cue 2-3x more than I give verbal performance feedback which is what Dr. Wu is talking about. There are other types of feedback present at all times and they are inescapable. Basically for me if I don’t have anything positive to say I usually keep my mouth shut about performances, my body language is going to give it away regardless. In competition, I always find ways to give positive feedback, in practice I just keep performance feedback in check until they do or are doing something correctly. Use cues to setup the athletes for a greater likelihood of success in task completion.
