I coached both U11 Boys and 16+ Girls FTC groups this year. A LOT of patience required, at all age levels

 bit of a joke with Gings

although it is probably fair to say the drama and issues with high end junior coaching (regardless of sport/discipline) is the parents. 

Nothing stuffs kids sport quite like adults.

Now now Foal - you know how some forum participants feel about in jokes, haha.


Have to say a large percentage of the drama associated with coaching any kid, be it at club or rep level is the parents.


Their poor attitudes, directing their kids against their coaches game plan etc - it does my head in. And *generally* as you move up to the elite players the parents are worse.


To steer this back on track - the 4 modules of in L2 junior and youth are great - but how about a module before you even start "Dealing with parents"

In my experience  2 schools of thought generally apply:

1) communicate and regularly remind all of  the intended goals for the season (development over results etc; or 2) just don't deal with it for better or worse (I know a club/rep coach who never addresses the parents at all simply because it's not his job to coach them).

 like #2.


Yes Gings the Y2 course was quite good. Overall I think anyone considering it should have a go.

 #1 is my usual school of thought...sometimes followed by #3 if 1 & 2 havent worked "I'm sorry sir/miss but you are no longer welcome at my teams games due to your conduct and attitude". Usually the player has ripped into mum and/or dad by this stage.

the L2 courses are good, defo looking forward to L3

NZF's Level 1 and 2 youth and junior courses were a complete waste of my time.

They still won't tell you how to plan and deliver a proper session. There is still no mention of what the playing philosophy they refer to in the WOFP is, and with no player profile, what exactly are we supposed to be coaching towards?

I learned more from reading Horst Wein's 'Developing Youth Footballers'm, which cost me $25 on Fishpond (and I'm not even paid to say that). He also has a book called 'Developing Game Intelligence'. 

I won't be wasting my time at any more NZF courses.

Have to agree although I wouldn't say they were a complete waste of time.  I know many starting coaches who have no idea of what to do, and these courses are invaluable for them.  As you progress with your coaching, the L1 and 2 become less relevant as, I believe, they are more focused on 'how to coach' rather than 'what to coach'.
