Interested in coaching soccer?
Many people often say, I would like to do that, but I just don't know enough about soccer to coach. While a background in soccer is helpful, it is not a requirement to have. It can be a learning process for you and your team. There are many coaching tools and information available at libraries or on the web for you to learn.
You can start out with U-4 or U-6, where the children are just learning how to dribble the ball, or if you do know all about soccer, you can go all the way up to U12-U14 where the kids already know the fundamentals and they are working together as a team on the field strategizing plays and foreseeing moves.
