Instructional Concepts

- Don't use Hot Words, or certain words that people react to (ie 'Don't you know what you're doing?' or 'Stupid', etc)  This causes the listener to concentrate on the emotion of the word and will chip away at trust in their coach.

- Consider your own biases - such as in the form of personal prejudice or distractions.  It can affect how well a coach listens or how they "think" the players are doing in the game.  Try to leave the outside world at the parking lot.  Soccer should be fun - especially at this age.
