Your post may be a wee bit over the top, particularly in the % it applies to,  though I have seen all the behaviors you point out frequently demonstrated by many 'coaches'.  Probably a good list of things to be on the lookout for and avoid when doing due diligence on a coach.

Have also seen a fair number of coaches who are honest and straight forward vilified because they just have poor communication/social skills or parents don't like the message.

Your advice on how to proceed sounds unrealistic for most.  Seems like a better option is to do your due diligence and find a coach who is relatively honest and straight forward and fits your DD's needs at a particular point in time.


Very good advice. Thing is. You can look throughout the season, when you have time (who has that? Wink. And stupid NTX soccer only gives you six weeks or so to practice (and hopefully) guest play with a team to see if there's chemistry with the team and your DD.

We kind of looked at doing coaching due diligence as part of everyday soccer activity.

Listen to people, watch coaches at games, practices, tournaments, HS etc.  

Listen to what coaches say about other coaches.

You are the only one looking out for your DD's best interest.  If you are realistic about your DD's skill level, level of commitment and best coaching style for her, the list for good fits narrows down pretty quickly.

Over the years we saw the biggest blowups and bad fits happen when parents ignored the above and went with the winningest team that they could find for their DD disregarding all other factors.

A wise coach told us early on.  Have your DD go where she is wanted, valued and fits.  She will perform the best, develop the best, otherwise you are going to drain all the fun out of the game for her.  

Actually not bad advice for a number of other things besides soccer.

Good sound advice...I'm sure these dual games in LH are making the loopy coaches extra loopy.  You can spot them a mile away....heard one from the parking lot the other day, got closer and he looked like a little troll with a strawberry sitting on his shoulders and a mole on it.... cherry Evil or Very Mad Mad Twisted Evil

There's nothing like a good topic to draw me out of the hibernation cave.

Really good points being made here.  I raise my glass and tip my cap to...

- the coach who is a "professional" youth soccer coach and has no other trade is generally an immature fraud and has found a way to line his or her pockets the easy way

- the development point is a good one.  As the kids age is the coach turning over and replacing the players that have been with him or her a long time?
