What NOT To Say To Your Coach| January 10, 2012
We all want our kids to succeed and do well, in sports and in life. However, many sports require a gradual development and it can be difficult to have the patience when kids are younger to have them do what is best for their long term development. Why? Because it can often result in short term disappointment or losses. Below is an animated video created by a long time soccer coach with some of the conversations he’s had with parents over the years. It can seem over the top at first, but many soccer coaches will tell you that they’ve had the exact same discussions. So the next time your child’s team is struggling, consider that the coach may be doing what is best for the player’s overall development even if it hurts the score or standings.
Right… Stop That! Don’t be surprised to hear a few coaches and officers say that this season. Too Funny! And apologies to those of you who were offensive linemen in high school!
