This morning I completed my certification to coach U6 soccer in GA; at least according to the Georgia State Soccer Association. The course was only 4 hours, but it was actually entertaining, informative, and educational.
I played soccer for several years growing up, so I know the rules, theory, and all, but I had no idea how to “teach” soccer. I think this course will go a long ways towards helping. All of the drills should help the kids develop a sense of the game, and develop their skills in a fun, practical way. Hopefully.
Interesting enough, we ran drills for about 90 minutes, and surely enough I am bitterly out of shape. Man that sucks. I celebrated on the way home by picking up a chocolate malt from Sonic. I mean, why fight the power?
Wish me luck with the kids!
