Howdy Folks! So something happened. I’m now in charge of a bunch of utes. What had happened was that we signed our 5 year old up for a soccer league. Well, on the entry form it asked if I’d be willing to volunteer coach if needed. I said, “Sure.” Not thinking they would really need me. Well, they did and they do.
All I had to do was pass the background check. Luckily I did…whew!
Luckily I’ve played my entire life, so I should be aight.
And I have coached before. For several years I volunteered with a couple different organizations to help coach people training for half and full marathons.
As for futbol, I have coached kids soccer before, tho it’s been several years. But the orientation I went to last night did get me a bit excited for it.
As for running, a few weeks back I upped my game. I’ve gone from running 5 days a week to 6. I’m digging it – it’s easier to get more mileage this way!
And the more I run, the more tacos I get to eat. I’ve already had several of these bad boys this week.
Tacos, running, soccer. All of that is right up my alley, right there.
How bout you? Ever coached anything? Got any advice/drills for coaching soccer kids? When are you coming to visit so we can get tacos?
Will they call you Coach Pirate Bobcat ? Years ago I coaches U12, U14 and High School soccer and LOVED it…I really miss it but am sure I’ll get into coaching with my girls. Yum…tacos!
My daughter loves this squirrel game (Have four nests in different parts of the field or 18 yard box, divide up the team. The kids become squirrels and their food/nuts (balls) are in the center of the nests. Taking turns, they have to run out and get a ball, dribble it back to their nest, high five their team mate and the next person goes. After all the food/balls are gone, they can then start taking their food/balls from another nest. End the game and count which team of squirrels has the most food/balls).
