The Constraints-Led Approach is not a magic bullet: principles for effective practice design in Sport & Physical Education


The Environment Design Principles are provided as a potential solution to this problem, a bridge which practitioners can use to link the complex theoretical concepts in successful practical applications. Just like a bridge, the EDP is designed to support the practitioner’s journey, providing a clear route between what would otherwise be two disconnected and distant locations (i.e., theory and practice). We hope that, through engagement with the four Environment Design Principles, coaches will feel more confident in exploring and adopting a constraints-led approach into his or her practice.
