The proof is always in the results.
Yes! Understanding application important. To add to that without communicating with said playerA drill is only as good as the intent of the drill do-er.
Meaning the “drill” works on whatever the do-er is intending it to work on (what their mental focus is on).
Or knowing the individuals development stage and their own individual ability to understand what they're doing...
Leaves a gap between the person watching (or on this forum could be it's interpreting the unknown)
SO... Discerning drills ability to form/function, to be helpful, might just be a guess at best.
This is a good point however there are some players that have really good ability to think and apply even at Young ages.In my experience a lot of kids, especially younger kids, have no focus whatsoever when they are doing the wrist snaps or t-drills. They are just going through the motions.
So for that I would not throw all players into the same basket.
Good coaches, instructors and parents can interpret the finer abilities of the player and be able to teach players with specific communications/drills toward their individual needs.
( Not cookie cutter approach)
