As the coach, I was super proud of my Bantam boys in our first game this past Sunday. The important thing to me wasn't the fact that we won 15-5 and every kid except the goalie had a goal. The greatest part of the game for me was watching the whole team spend the last quarter passing the ball to the last kid that still needed to score. It was so great to watch them work to get him the ball. Did I mention they played the whole game with no subs? They really did a great job!
My biggest goal as a coach is to not only teach the game and have each boy do well, but to teach them to be good sports (win or lose), to be good team mates (which often means being unselfish) and to love the game.
I'm looking forward to see how good this group can be this season. It's going to FUN!
