My name is Dalton Grier and I have played soccer ever since I was five years old. I may not be able to play forever; however, the sport will always be a part of me. I hope to one day be a coach for a youth team. This would allow me to pass on my love for the game onto someone else. That is why for my senior project, I have chosen to be an assistant coach for soccer team.
My research paper was on the benefits of youth sports. The role that sports plays in a child’s wellbeing was far greater than I had ever imagined. Some of the benefits are obvious, such as the physical ones like a lower risk of obesity. Others were not as apparent, like the psychological benefits and an increase in social skills. It is a necessity that today’s youth continue to participate in sports as there are many positives that go along.
I worked work with a coach that I know as assistant coach for her soccer team. Soccer is one of the most physical sports that you can play, as there is constant running and hard hits. This is a great way for the players to get in shape as well as participate in team bonding by engaging with other players. I had never worked with a girls’ team before now, and it is far different than a boys’ team. They respond to different coaching styles than what I was used to, but after a few practices I learned to relay my messages in a way that resonated with the girls.
At my local soccer club, there are plenty of opportunities to get a job coaching. They typically give jobs to young, college aged people, so it is a real possibility that I will be able to coach a youth team. In my time coaching, I realized that you need to be assertive or your players will neither listen or respect you. You need to realize that you cannot be nice all the time or nothing will get accomplished. If I choose to go into this profession, I will probably coach a boys’ team as I find them easier to work with.
I really enjoyed coaching and I look forward to possibly doing it in the future. Thank you all for your time.
