Carbajo 1 Katherine Carbajo Dr. Rick Albrecht MOV 201 27 October 2018 Practical Learning Experience I observed a men’s varsity soccer team (age range 15-18 years) practice from the high school I attended, Shrine High School, coached by Mark Soma.

Throughout the soccer practice, Mark used positive reinforcement and mistake- contingent encouragement the most. Many of the drills that are run are designed with positive reinforcement and the players left completely unaware. For example, a 3v3 drill was run using a small space outlined with cones and two PUGG nets at the beginning of practice.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
