I have to say I loved game days, but the days that were the most stressful to me were practice days. Prior to being thrown into this coaching position they did a 30-minute clinic to showcase 4 or 5 different skill sets and fun activities that would appeal on the micro level, like red light green light, sharks and minnows and a few others that didn’t make a whole lot of sense to me. On practice days, I’d often find the kids grew bored with these games and while sharks and minnows was the favorite, it would become out of control and soon soccer became a tackle sport. 😉 Anyway, for me, a 30-minute clinic wasn’t enough but that was partially the lack of confidence I had in myself. When it came to game days, my kids killed it on the field and always did their very best.
