My name is Joel Stewart and I will be coaching our Tots team this year, very excited to get outside! Quick background on me: My Wife and I live in Worthington Hills, Lincoln is on this team and is our youngest. I have coached a few sessions in the past for our older two children.
At this age, the focus is 1000% on having fun - I typically set up cones and do games like sharks/minnows, red light/greenlight, obstacle course type dribbling activities, etc. We are set up to have about 50 minutes of practice/games each Saturday. For the actual "games", it is 5 X 5 (sometimes 4 X 4), and I take a formulaic approach towards playing time - everyone plays equal amounts.
Practice and games are a blast, but it's a bit like herding cats at this age :) .... so if you are interested/open to helping facilitate please let me know? You can call/text/email anytime with questions and/or to sign up to help out, my contact info is:
We have jerseys/shinguards/soccerballs for each child which I will bring to the first session. Thanks!
