The First Soccer Tournament: Nobody Told Them It Would Be Like This!
(Sep 2nd, 2014)
This U8 team was formed a few months ago after a lengthy tryout process. A few practices were held during the summer to help the players get familiar with each other. Coaches even had a trainer work with them a couple times per week for the past three weeks in preparation for their first tournament. Coaches, parents and players were eager to participate in their first tournament as the “A” team from the club.
The Good Side of the Field
(Jun 3rd, 2014)
By Tyler Isaacson, founder of youthsoccer101.com.
I occasionally hear comments made behind my back while I am coaching. I almost never turn around and try to keep my eyes on the field. My wife hears things more often than I do because she is generally on the other side of the field, with the parents, many of whom don’t know who she is. Believe it or not, I even receive emails and text messages with “ideas” about who should be playing where and who should be on the bench. Do they understand I am a volunteer and I am doing this for the kids? I decided to write a little note to the parents to give them my side of the story.
