Coaching kids footy: well that didn't suck

This time last year the b principal of our school (also the footy coach) asked if I'd coach the older kids in a yea r 4/5 team.


So I did. And we had a season.  Itried to teach them what I think about footy:
Footy is all about being there for your mates.  The things to do:

Ignore the pain
Talk to each other on the field
Run hard and be first at the ball
Mark up a player when you're defending
Get loose and lead when you're attacking

Here's a photo.  On the day it just happened that the five boys hung around, but I'm very proud of 
Daniella, Sophia, Charlotte, Paige and Zara too.
