Will you coach again next year?

We know of many frustrated volunteer baseball, softball, basketball and soccer coaches who have something in common. They don’t feel like they’re doing a very good job with the teams they’ve been assigned to coach. They believe the kids are not getting better, not improving from game to practice to game, and that the parents are not supportive. Some of these coaches don’t think they are being given enough assistance from the league either.

Please, don’t give up! It will get better! You’ll get better! You may feel you are doing the kids a disservice but if  your heart is in the right place, you are not. This is not the time for kids to turn into superstars. This is the time for them to have fun and want to come back and play again next year. Just focus on that and everything else will fall into place. Eventually, the more talented players will receive the professional coaching they need to significantly improve but for right now all they need is a safe, fun environment to play. The league, and your community needs people like you this year, and next.
