February 21, 2005 -- TAGteach is teaching with acoustical guidance, and is used for fast-track learning in athletes and students. The teacher or coach “tags” correct performance of skill elements with a click sound. The student’s brain does not have to process corrections, emotions or translations while the body is trying to perform complicated movements. The TAG taught athlete learns to react to this "data" with lightning fast speed while building muscle memory and confidence. The all-positive tools of TAGteach create a comfortable and secure learning environment for students and teachers of any discipline.

TAGteach has been used in many disciplines, including artistic gymnastics, Special Olympic rhythmic gymnastics, dance, soccer, volleyball, martial arts, speech pathology and in the academic classroom. “Tagging has taught my students to think for themselves”, said kindergarten teacher Amy Roberts. “We saw an almost immediate improvement in skill execution and confidence in our Special Olympics rhythmic gymnasts”, said Debbie Boycott, head coach of the Oakville Butterflies from Oakville, ON Canada. “The athletes were very quick to understand and appreciate this way of teaching and were even able to teach each other using the TAGteach method”.
“Using TAGteach has been the most important career move I’ve ever made. I truly enjoy coaching again and my TAGtaught athletes have made tremendous strides and brought home a lot of gold medals. They exude confidence and are learning to take responsibility for their own training”, said Theresa McKeon, coach at International Gymnastics in Matthews, NC
