The Iceberg Theory of Our Success
The “Iceberg Theory of Success” helps us to realize that every successful person had to invest a lot of effort and work until this person achieved his goals.
One of the first questions most sports coaches will get asked from new students is; “How long is it going to take until I am proficient at this game?”
The 10 Year Rule:
Scientific research in sport has concluded that a minimum of ten years, or 10,000 hours of deliberate training is needed for a talented participant to reach ELITE LEVELS. This translates into an average of more than three hours of training daily for 10 years. There are no shortcuts; participant development is a long-term process. Short- term performance goals must never be allowed to undermine long-term participant development.
