READER INQUIRY: I thought for something new--on your website, a new category called "Coaches Corner." Everyone likes to give friendly advice, to fellow players, even though we may not understand why we are having trouble with a shot. We all learn watching other players and having another player help us when we ask. This part of the CroquetNation.com site could be an open forum to give advice and ask questions of our fellow players. As one high-priced coach was heard saying, “Whatever works best for you, go with it and enjoy the game.”
ANSWER: I like the idea of more teaching and coaching content. Should be a lot more of this going on. However, I don't think a new category works because you have to divide coaching by croquet type. And that would fall into the categories already set up.
READER FOLLOW-UP: My thought had nothing to do with either the 6 or 9 wicket game but rather how any player approaches the ball, how they stand, how they swing, their style of grip, the follow through swing, and why any of these things are not working. It has nothing to do with the strategy of a game.
ANSWER: Okay, shot technique .... yeah, I like that concept and I think it probably belongs in General. If it dominates the category, we can create a coaching forum for shot technique. I can re-categorize threads later.
