Let's assume that anyone who is given the title 'soccer coach' by the local soccer association is qualified to work with children. But, is he/she good enough to work with your child?
You will not know that answer unless you have a one-on-one meeting with the prospective coach. I urge you to insist that the coach meet with you before the season begins.
- Get to know each other on a personal basis
- Freely and fully discuss your mutual needs, concerns and expectations
Your child's coach, if you are not aware, is a very influential person in your child's playing future. The stimulation and support he/she provides can instill a desire to play soccer for years to come. Conversely your child's interest in playing may decline and playing for its own sake can be sacrificed. Therefore, it is extremely important that you find out, before the season begins, if the coach will be able to create a learning environment that is also FUN for your child.
