Hello, I'm new here.
« on: July 26, 2018, 11:56:56 AM »
Hello, Im a youth coach from NJ.  I coach a 11-12 y/o 11 on 11 full contact.  I have kids ranging from 18 to 3 to.  I have been coaching football at various capacities for 20 years.    Oddly enough, I knew a heck of a lot more 20 years ago.  As time passes I'm realizing how little I actually know which is one of the reasons I am here.

There is so much to take in and learn here.   I'm glad a place like this exists.  Wish I would have known about it years ago.

I stumbled across this site in search of used single man sleds for blocking and overall strength and conditioning training.   I'm also on the board of my organization  and one of my duties is equipment management.  We have very little money to work with so the search for equipment can be time consuming.   

Its a pleasure to be here.  Look forward to learning as much as I possibly can!

Welcome! New guy buys the beer.

Take a while and poke around some. Find things that you like and things that you are unsure of. I would highly recommend reading through this thread, this thread and this thread just to get a feel for the place. Then ask questions as you see fit.

But this place, much like your team, is going to be as good as you make it. So chip in.

Well, it is actually a good representation of what can go on here. Something starts out fine and dandy and we talk about kids being eaten by lions or whatever.
