Coaching Youth Soccer is Coaching

I was helping coach Rik this spring with the kids and it was fun. Now I’ve taken on a summer 5×5 team and most of the team doesn’t know each other.

Team forming always seems to be the same. Focus on getting people to trust and know each other is key. I spent our first practice just having the kids call out names of other players and passing. Obviously I have more to go but let’s see what happens.
