I am not sure if you have seen what has been going on in the world of football but there has been a lot of talk at FA and grassroots level about supporting children through the sport. Quite timely given I decided to get involved in football a few months ago.
Having worked in the past with some great talented and gifted young footballers – I decided I wanted to get involved more in the football arena by using my knowledge about kids. I have no idea what the off-side rule is and to be honest I don’t have a massive interest in the sport but what I am passionate about is that parents, coaches and children all get the support and respect they need and want in grassroots football.
So what am I upto now? Well I have teamed up with www.clubwebsite.co.uk and am writing for them on the emotional and behaviourial side of coaching children in football. I have written two articles – the more recent one on the impact of parents shouting from the sidelines. The two written to date are on their website and in their monthly newsletter.
So now I have no option but to learn a few rules of the game and know what a defender does………..
