            speed at which they are operated at. Performance depends on 4 mechanisms (perception,
            decision, action and memory). The newest research advocates decision training as a critical
            part of development in young athletes. This presentation will introduce coaches to methods
            that help to create cognitive skills that will help athletes perform in the chaotic nature of the
