Make it fun
It’s no secret that youth sports continue to become more competitive. But at the end of the game, every kid wants the same thing: to have fun. There might be moments during your season where some players (or quite frankly, parents) lose sight of this. And as their coach, you can be the role model who always keeps flag football fun.
For example, you can pick a “special assistant coach” every game to help you develop plays. Or you can create a signup chart for parents to bring a snack at the end of every game, giving families a chance to socialize. During your practices, you can play a silly game with your players. The list goes on and on. As long as you keep fun at the foundation, both you and your players will have a positive, meaningful experience.
