Last night I officially started my role as my son's soccer coach for this coming fall season. I went to our first coaches meeting. I felt like I had to sign my life away with all the paperwork. We got our official coaches shirts, picked up our team roster as well as all the uniforms. It was exciting.
I play soccer myself but have never ventured into the world of coaching. I will say that I am a little nervous. Anytime I work with children I tend to get a little uneasy. Working with children is a big responsibility. I take it very seriously.
I will say that there are "pluses" to being the coach. You get to pick the practice days, the practice locations, the position that your child wants to play, and the number that your child wants to wear on his uniform... as well as many others.
I am sure that it will be a fun season!
