why are you coaching?



A year ago, I was an assistant with a guy who had been coaching the I-formation and calling the kids idiots when they made a mistake for 30 years. Now that I have my own team, I'm excited about teaching the game I love to kids and making a positive difference in their lives. It's great to have found a forum such as this where everyone here is passionate about coaching and OK with being labeled "over the top." Thanks Clark!

I'm coaching because my son is playing and his first year he had good coaches, then we moved. The second year his HC was great with the kids and he was a RB in college so I thought he knew his stuff. His OL Coach was Coach Dad and treated everyone like crap because they didn't block right. He didn't teach them right. I couldn't take it any more so I got online and started learning as much as possible until the next season. I was the OC and long story short by the end of the season I was running the practices because th HC excollege RB really didn't know what he was doing. Now I have 2 years of online studying, this website, all you Coaches and the DC Wing T. I'm really excited and can't wait to teach the kids more of what I have learned and to share my passion for the game with them. Besides it gets me out of the house and away from the Mrs.:P

I read where Pamela Anderson is a Team Mom for her kid's soccer team out in California. My Team Moms have never been mistaken for Pamela Anderson, and I will leave it at that!

I got into coaching after watching my son from the sidelines his first year. No technique was being taught at all. First night in pads they lined the kids up about 20 yards apart and told them to run into each other "so that we can find out who the soccer players are". Mindless grass drills would eat up 20 minutes of practice. Then an hour and a half of scrimmage every night, first team whacking the second team around.

I figured I had something to offer, so volunteered the following year. Enjoyed it so much that I am still with it 4 years after my son left the program.

Nothing like a little eye candy to smooth over a losing season. LOL

I got started coaching after watching my son's 7/8 yr old team go through a 5-4 season, with lunatic assistant coaches. The HC like my cool demeanor and figured I could help balance out the staff.

After seeing all the shady stuff going on I figured that some one should be in for the kids.

i got a call a week before the season started last year asking if i would coach my sons team because the other guy quit at the last minute. So I took the job thinking it was a good way to spend time with my son. I was given the forms and 3 footballs and pretty much told to have a nice day. My son broke his arm on the monkey bars 2 weeks later of course. It was the most fun I have ever had. Funny as it is i am a very loud and obnoxious person but i was surprised at how much fun i could have without swearing or yelling at anybody. I love coaching and i love to have the opportunity to teach kids the greatest game on earth. There is something very rewarding being able to sit back and watch 15 6-8 year olds who didn't know what a football was, make a great tackle or run a reverse. Unfortunately I did not have ANY hot moms at all. Although in the future i will be using the MILF factor in all recruiting activities. J/K

"Why am I coaching?"

Because I hate the overall dearth of quality youth football coaching and want to work hard to see it improve.

I coach because I want to give back to a sport that gave me so many lessons. I think a lot of coaches don't believe in players and their abilities. I often hear "kids can't do that." I enjoy teaching the game and I want to be apart of it still.

I know I will always have at least one hot mom on my team cause I coach my son...

As far as why I coach, I wanted my sons to have a place to play ball, have fun and develop as young men. When my oldest son started to play ball that place didn't exist so I joined the Football Board, signed on as a Coach and with the help of other like minded parents made one.

I coach becasue I just can't help it....it is an addiction.

Granted my son plays, but I coached before him. I love the game, and I want to teach it. Period.

I am amazed at how I have grown since coaching. This is my eighth year, and I mellow as each year goes by. When I started...I yelled a lot...but as each year has passed, I have much better perspective on why these kids sign up, an dwhy I coach...

Well considering I just came back from Offense-Defense football camp as a father counselor/coach I'd say I do it because I truly love the sport and I want to pass on that passion to the kids. There's nothing better than watching kid's that you coached finally have everything click and get that big run, big block or the big hit and see their eyes light up when they come over to tell you about it. The GLMs are also an added bonus.

I can confirm the above. Also, I can say Coach Jason did the same for the San Antonio Wildcats. It is just amazing what some people can bring to the table with them and on such a large scale.

Hey some of the best teams i have ever had were teams made up of mostly moms.. Newport smoking truck driving three job having waffle hut working kind of moms.

Those kids normally are some good kids. They want to be there.

Colts,

I'm not a real good reader but tell me more about the banging moms part?

Seriously though, I coach because I am very passionate about teaching kids the value of "team". I want to instill a work ethic in each child that can carry them through life despite bad grades, lack of college, etc. I know that if a person learns how to work hard, they will succeed in life no matter what.
