Up bright and early 4am.. I have my coach info training session this morning. 4 hours of learning to coach in-house soccer for boys 6th grade to 9th.
Here is our schedule.. with a thunder storm thrown in there. Not sure how the outdoor part will work in the rain/thunderstorm?
Class room with coaches - 2 hours
Field with kids - 1 hour
field with only coaches - 1 hourI am all packed for the day and ready to go. While I'm happy there is coaching help for the first time this year, did I want to spend 4 hours on this task? I'm just not sure? The only thing I really want to know is the number of kids on the field and some drills to keep the kids busy. Maybe some advice on sub in's. That's about it and I'm good to go.
I think Evan will be the next soccer player. I'll have more opportunities to use this coaching experience in a few years when Evan starts playing.
I also received a shirt plus a large bag of all the soccer equipment I'll need to coach. Over all it was a good but long learning experience. The best part was the last hour of training which covered games to play/demo of them with the ages I'll have to coach.
Starting the 2nd week of July, I'll be out on the field being the soccer coach for the first time. How fun and a ton of work but I'm up for the challenge.
I made some Chocolate Chip cookies and have left over dough to bake up another batch. I love hot right out of the oven cookies.
