The NECONN Soccer Club is a volunteer organization, and coaching is a great way to contribute. Now we know some of you think you don't have the time, or don't know enough about soccer, but NECONN will gladly help you with tips and drills. (OK, we won't help you manage your time so the lawn gets mowed, you're on your own in that one.) You can also find lots of drills online, right on our web site.
But the primary function of coaching, is to show the kids the basics of soccer and let them have fun. You provide a little bit of organization and a good amount of motivation, and the kids will surprise you with how much they'll pick up. And if you want you can wear a whistle. How cool is that? You may even want to wear it at home to keep the whole house on it's toes!!
With our new web site, coaching a team for NECONN is now easier and more organized than ever. As a coach, you'll have a password for the site that gives you access to your team's roster and schedule, which you can print, and you'll be able to email your team parents with news and updates, and even post game synopses and pictures of your players on the site (with approval from the player's parents).
So please volunteer to coach. Is it easy? No. Is it rewarding? Actually, it is. It really is.
