As mentioned in the last post, I got a bit of feedback from parents about last autumn’s U13 season.
Some of the comments were as follows:
-I should be more rah-rah.
-I should be more business-like.
-I should focus more on basic technique work.
-I should focus more on advanced tactical work.
-I should focus more on the stronger players.
-I should focus less on the stronger players and more on the team as a whole.
-I am “a great coach” but here are 27 reasons why I shouldn’t be coaching. (This was in one comment by the same person)
After 12 years of coaching, you wouldn’t think anything would surprise me.
I’m glad I enjoy actually working directly with the kids, because the parents are increasingly becoming a nightmare.
