Great practice tonight!
Over the past few weeks, I have been getting to know each of your children and learning what makes them tick. Every child is different and one of the toughest jobs of the coach is finding that connection to each child that makes the sport come alive.
Today we talked a little about how having athletic ability is an important “skill” but sometimes that skill will only take you so far. Great players who take their game to the next level have the team mindset and lead by example for all to see and emulate. Our goal as coaches is to build our young leaders up and give them an opportunity on the field to mentor the younger kids as they develop their skills. This is always fun to see and I enjoy watching the kids take on the challenge.
To wrap things up, I can honestly say that this is a great group of kids and all the coaches are looking forward to getting to know each of them. Thanks again to the coaches and parents who have chipped in to help out so far. Trust me, the more coaches and parent we have involved the better the overall experience will be for the kids.
