2: Coaches Corner By jack mcpherson | T= E= A= M= | tOGETHER EVERYONE ACHIEVES MORE | “From working a job in everyday life, to coaching youth soccer, when you find yourself in that particular leadership role, the most important characteristic of the job you hold will be finding a way to get a team of individuals to work together.” Taking 13 talented soccer players with individual personalities, interests, grades, separate goals in life and creating a thought process of one to comprehend the meaning, understanding and importance of teamwork creates its own personal sense of confidence. There hasn’t been a full soccer match, second half, half time, first half, opening game whistle, team cheer, pre-game warm up, arrival to a match, drive to a game, clock out at work, wake in the morning that I would not feel optimistic of the outcome of what 13 of the best combined youth soccer players I have had the privilege to head coach would achieve.
