To open up the possibility of plasticity, it is essential to fail many times within the same session and pay attention to the appropriate sensory events. While working with a coach is crucial, it is also important to have a period in each training session where the athlete can solely focus on their errors without being directed to something else. This error recognition signal helps the practitioner know what to focus on. Repetition after repetition is necessary during this period to cue the attentional systems and promote plasticity. It is important to make errors and not constantly rely on external cues. The maximum number of repetitions should be done in each learning session, and errors should be paid attention to for faster and long-lasting skill learning. Neurochemical rewards are generated from successful or proximate successful performance, and after the session, nothing specific needs to be done.
