Why Do You Coach?
- For the love of the game! Being around the sport in any capacity – player, coach, fan, referee – is so much fun.
- Based on my background in The Beautiful Game, I have something to offer kids who want to learn and develop as soccer players. Seeing players develop skills and understanding over time, and knowing you contributed to that growth, is personally rewarding.
