Descrizione articolo

Riassunto:

Playmaker Polo provides both a wonderful introduction for newcomers to the game of polo and an in-depth guide to revision for those who wish to maintain or improve a level already achieved. Many years of coaching experience have taught the author that giving people reasons and explanations for what they do increases the rate of their learning curve enormously. Specific rationales for all aspects of the game of polo are given and developed throughout this book, accompanied by many true anecdotes and factual examples, which confirm the points being made. Hugh Dawnay was the first person ever to put into writing the theories of being "outside the horse" and "making the pony follow the rider" and he has had incredible coaching success with these concepts, which are explored further in these pages. His tactical principle of the rope and the magical mnemonic LATET, which guides the tactical thought process, are also explained in depth, as is the very effective technique of the slow hand being the pivot of the five circles which produce the ten shots required in the game of polo. The multi-dimensional application of playmaking, which permeates all chapters, suggests how players of all levels can take a constructive part both in a game and in the preparation beforehand. The high quality photographs and diagrams will help the reader to enjoy, understand and apply the many lessons that are being taught.

Condizioni di spedizione:

Orders usually ship within 2 business days. Shipping costs are based on books weighing 2.2 LB, or 1 KG. If your book order is heavy or oversized, we may contact you to let you know extra shipping is required. For lighter-weight items, I will refund excess payment for shipment. For overseas customers, this can be quite significant. Standard US shipping is media rate, but books will be shipped by the most economical means, unless otherwise specified by the buyer. Heavy books are generally so noted in item description, and may require additional postage. Insurance is highly recommended for items costing more than $50, but will be sent uninsured at buyer's risk. Items will be well packed; packing may include recycled materials. Outside of the US: Please note, the post office has discontinued the inexpensive 'surface mail' rate. Shipping options are 'First Class' or 'Priority Mail' and rates are dependent upon the destination country. International rates are available at USPS.com for reference purposes. International buyers please note: the financially-troubled United States Postal Service raised its rates in January, 2013, significantly; shipping costs reflect this.
