Coaches: What is your role?
Your role is very important! You are the enthusiastic teacher, patient counselor, and everlasting cheerleader.
Come to practice with plans ready to implement. Have a Plan B in case Plan A isn't working. Tell your players a few things you are going to work on (dribbling, kicking from out-of-bounds, etc.). Give water breaks. Keep players active with their ball; standing in line won't give them experience. The coaches leave after the last player has been picked up from practice and games. Do not ever leave a child alone at a field!
Have an idea which players will begin on the field during games, and rotate who plays together.
Don't count the score! Give praise to each player for their contributions. Kids love to hear what they did well!!
Ask your players come 15-20 minutes early prior to games starting so you can see who is in attendance.
