Resources for the Successfull Coach
"A coach is someone who makes you do what you don't want to do, so you can be what you always wanted to be."
Youth sports programs can only exist when a group of people selflessly volunteer their time and effort to teach, encourage and promote the sport. Youth soccer in Tamaqua is especially difficult as most coaches in our organization have not played much competitive soccer. This page is dedicated to that group of people who have agreed to give their time to bring the sport of soccer to our children.
