People have many different reasons why they coach or want to try coaching. Maybe it's as simple as I'm going to be there anyway I might as well help. Or maybe you just love being around kids?! Either way, that is a great place to start. Maybe you enjoy seeing kids become better, their growth and development over the season. Maybe you want to be a role model - teach respect, sportsmanship, how to have fun win or lose. Maybe you want to work on your own leadership skills or maybe you just want to give back to the sport or club that you love. Whatever the reason, we appreciate you volunteering your time.
