I Just Agreed to Coach My Daughter’s Soccer Team, What Did I Do?

Does this scenario sound familiar.  Your eight year old daughter says to you, “Dad, I want to play soccer (that’s the good news)… and I want you to coach my team.”  The smile on your face from the excitement of her interest in soccer quickly turns to cold sweats and panic.  I don’t know anything about soccer you say to yourself.  I’ve never played it before, and I have certainly never coached it before.  I’ve never coached anything for that matter.  What am I going to do?  Of course, you say yes.  How can you say no to those innocent eyes?  In her mind, you’re her Dad, you can do anything, but in yours you are thinking - How the heck am I going to pull this one off?

So, you sign up, get the team roster and see that practices start next week.  The inevitable is upon you.  No more procrastinating, its time to figure this out.  How hard can it be, you say to yourself - purely a false sense of security.  The first thing you do is get on-line and search for soccer drills, right?  After sorting through the 616,000 results  (literally) you find yourself more confused than ever.  Plenty of drills, but which ones do I use?  Not to mention, many of the written descriptions of the drills are confusing.  I understand the diagram to set up the drill, but have no idea what it is supposed to look like. 

This sound familiar yet?  Or should I continue with the anxiety that sets in once you step foot on the field for the first practice.  If it makes you feel any better, you are not alone.  There are thousands of coaches in your very same position every season.  That’s why we created CATZCoach (www.catzcoach.com).  The ultimate tool for the volunteer youth soccer coach.  All the tools you need to provide a great experience for your players (and you), including full video practice plans for the entire season developed by experienced coaches, and easy to use team communication tools.  Coaching your child’s team shouldn’t be scary.  It can and should be one of the most rewarding experiences you can have with your son or daughter.  Enjoy, and have fun!

Wow, what a great idea for a website!  I’m so excited I stumbled onto it!  I know we will be in this situation soon, and it will be nice to have your website to refer to!  I am so excited for my daughter to start playing sports, but I’m afraid I don’t know much about them.  And it is so true that if you go and type something into google, you will get way too many results to ever figure out what your doing!

In the last year I’ve experienced this 2 or 3 times. When I wake up in the morning and start to go about my morning routine I suddenly find myself overcome with a cold sweat, dizziness, nausea, and feel faint and lightheaded.
