The KICK Principle vs. the KISS Principle
Posted on 03/11/2015
When I was a young teacher, I did some football and basketball coaching. An old head football coach preached the KISS Principle to us young coaches: it stood for “Keep It Simple, Stupid.” If players didn’t understand a play or technique, they were even encouraged to raise their hands and shout “KISS!” As coaches, we would then do some teaching to simplify things. The system worked very well for middle and high school teams.
