  • "I can't coach losers..."

    Bound For Glory coming up on ESPN...

    Does this sound like it could possibly suck more?

        My 6/7 yo girls soccer team is horrific. Daughter included.


        Last saturday had double header. During the second game, only had 4 players on the field (we play 6v6) The other 5 decided it was more fun to sit on the sidelines reading books.

        So I sat and read with them

          I have half a team that wants to do nothing but talk about the OC, and the other half that wants to kick ass.

          How the hell do you handle that?

            My daughter's volleyball team is terrible. Last night they lost to Eisenhower Park, who only had 4 girls. It's gotta be about fun when they're in an 8-10 year old league, though, and the girls are having fun.

              Does your league do rally scoring?

              It's a stupid rule in non-tournament settings.

                They must not, because I don't know the terminology. It's a public park league, and not super competitive. Two years ago we had a pair of twins- Jenny and Jeffery (Jeffrey's a girl)- who I think I'll see at Stanford someday, though. They were undefeated that year.

                  Rally scoring is where a point is awarded at the end of each rally, rather than on a successful rally by the serving team. It cuts the game time in half, easily. It's great when you play 6 games or so a day. Terrible when you play 1.

                    Oh. That is the way they score it. The girls play three games against whoever the opponent is even if one team wins the first two. They're on a clock, too. Twelve minutes, so the whole thing is over in 45 minutes or less.

                        ... as funny as that sounds, when I started coaching young kids I'd give into the distraction. It would get over quickly.

                        For instance, when we were having soccer practice, if a large plane flew over and made noise, we'd stop and wave at it.

                        If someone found a frog, we'd go take a look.

                        Etc.

                        Now, when you're talking 7th and 8th grade boys, it's easier to make them less distracted. lol

                          We just switched to it this year. It's probably a really good thing for younger kids too, otherwise the games would last forever.

                          It hasn't really affected my team too much. I've got every single one of my girls overhand serving pretty damn well this year, even the ones who've never played before. Most of the teams we play have a one to two overhand servers, if any.

                          Now, if they could learn how to properly recieve a serve, we'd own. [img]style_emoticons/<#EMO_DIR#>/dry.gif[/img]

                              bombay mentioned earlier, at 6/7 it is more than fun for them just to get together. I mean they really have fun. I have a couple that don't speak real good English, and one that just lost her Mother, so we have some other challenges besides soccer skills.
