Sports Coaches Tell What It's Like To Be ThemBeing a sports coach for kids is a brave endeavor. On the one side, there are the kids who will never listen to a thing you say. Kids who will talk back at any chance they get. Kids who will throw things at your back as soon as you turn around. However, among the bad apples there will always be the kids who do listen, are good team players, and are fun to watch improve. The same thing can be said about coaches. Some coaches know what it takes to be a good role model. They can rally their kids and go on to win championship games. While others may be doing the job for different reasons... Here are some confessions of what it's like to be a sports coach.
1. Kids often focus on being the best, but let's be honest, so do adults.
2. That's what they're there for. If you come out alive, you win!
3. Facebook is more important than watching kids run laps. Right?
4. Something tells me he's not that great of a coach.
5. Something tells me this is a great coach! Even if your kids don't think of you, your lessons are still in their minds.
6. As long as you are doing your best. Just being there for them is often good enough.
7. That's good to hear. Hopefully, this isn't a rare thing.
8. Kids don't look at it that way. You have to show them why it's important.
9. Sense of entitlement on a team will not work.
10. Having fun is what it's all about! And winning... ;)
11. If they do, that's their problem.
12. Not all. Just most. Hehe.
13. I'm glad they have an outlet!
14. The coach is there for the kids while the kids are there for the coach.
15. It's always interesting when you assume a different role.
16. Let's hope you're getting paid for it.
17. Life coaches are a thing.
20. Haha! I
