Coaching is Rewarding

Coaching 2 Comments »

I have been coaching my youngest daughter's soccer team ever since she was in 1st grade.  It has been a great time and I've learned a lot about the game, myself and my daughter. 

My father seemed to generally have a skeptical view of coaches.  They were "Jocks" and their main goal was to win, sometimes at all costs so it was a bit of a surprise for me and my father when I realized I wanted to give it a go.  The reality is that coaches are humans and humans make mistakes but the vast majority of encounters I've had have been good.  Most coaches seem to be there for the right reasons.

I'm looking forward to jotting down some of my thoughts about our practices and games in the coming weeks.  I have to face the fact that next year may be my last year of coaching since my daughter will then be playing in middle school and they have their own coaching staff.  I'm a bit sad about that.
