You’ve been on the sidelines, watching your child play for the softball, baseball, soccer, football, or any other team. You’d like to get involved, but you don’t know enough about the sport or about coaching.
Donate Your Time – I know that you are very busy and might have a hard time finding a way to donate your time, but it doesn’t have to be a major commitment.

So, as a soccer coach, your job is to help build self-esteem and confidence to win soccer games and the best way to do that is to let them know that they are great soccer players and without each and every one of them, the team will not win. When they feel valuable, they become valuable. And you as a coach will have the greatest of times right along with those kids on the pitch. How do you think I know that?
