I went to the soccer league meeting on Saturday and they gave some interesting advice to the coaches.
If your team is winning 5-0 at half time, it’s your responsibility, as the coach, to stop making goals and try to lose. Put yourself in the other team’s place. You wouldn’t like it if you went home defeated 15-0. It’s no fun for the kids or their parents.
I get it. I’m on board with their reasoning. I just think it’s interesting.
What planet are we preparing our children to live on?
