K, my son (8 yrs) decided to take up his first sport. And guess who volunteered ... Me!

Now here's the kicker. I've never played or know the rules. I need some advice on things I should and shouldn't do! First practice is set to May 19 and first game is set to may 23.

I'm going for it- I just don't want to be eaten alive by 10 yr olds. I want to teach something worth while. Make it enjoyable.

First game under my belt. Lots of yelling, running, swarming, but all-in-all I made it alive. Parents were supportive and they enjoyed the game as well. Final score: 3 - 5 (we lost) but it was a gooood game to watch, lots of fun!

Just thought I'd share!

Just a quick update. I have had multiple patents help with coaching ... I have not faced a 'Soccer Mom' rage yet! The teams record 2-1. We won our first game this past Wednesday 5-1.

Very true- but you can imagine how many people can change that mentality when loading becomes a reality. Our last game was awesome. We won 5-1. We are 2L-1W for the season.
