Youth Coaching Tips #9-12

1 Leave a comment on verse 1 0 #9 – Technique

2 Leave a comment on verse 2 0 They’ll start off playing with their toes,
jump straight to head, their eyes to close.
Try to make the laces kick
and them not seem a pogo stick.

3 Leave a comment on verse 3 0 #10 – Compassion

4 Leave a comment on verse 4 0 Balls in faces, small collisions.
Inattention. Late decisions.
Show concern with each disaster.
These are looks you have to master.

5 Leave a comment on verse 5 0 #11 – Family Ties

6 Leave a comment on verse 6 0 If yours is playing, bless her heart,
it’s usually best she doesn’t start,
addresses you as “Coach”, not “Dad”
You? Use her number. Drive her mad.

7 Leave a comment on verse 7 0 #12 – Misery Loves Company

8 Leave a comment on verse 8 0 The silver lining to the bashings
following the six nil thrashings?
You lose, and gain, some company,
as they track down the referee.
