Assistant coach

Hey my name is Oliver, I love soccer and I love coaching it to kids. If there is any team U5-U12 looking for an assistant coach i would like to be that guy (I can't be a head coach yet). I don't have a lot of experience coaching but my first job as  a coach I trained a U9 team in Haiti and they ended winning their league three times in a row. I really know the sports because I was a soccer player myself (I played for this club called AJSB U13 and U15). so if there is any team in Indiana (that's where I'm located right now) looking for an assistant coach I'm you guy.

Handling a Disruptive Parent

If you are a coach or administrator of a youth soccer team, you may have to deal with a disruptive parent. This can be a difficult situation, but there are some things you can do to try to resolve the issue.

If a parent yells at a player during a game, it can be very disruptive and distracting. It can also be confusing for the player, who may not know how to react. In some cases, it may even make the player angry or upset. If this happens, it is important to try to remain calm and focused on the game. It is also important to remember that the parent is probably just trying to support their child and that they are not trying to hurt or disrupt the game.

First, try to talk to the parent privately and explain your concerns. It may be that the parent is unaware of their behavior and will be willing to change it. If the parent is uncooperative or belligerent, you may need to involve other parents or even the league.

It is important to remember that the child's well-being is always the top priority. If a parent is being truly disruptive and is not willing to change their behavior, it may be in the child's best interest to be removed from the team.

Serie A Strike Over, But Troubles Remain

The Serie A strike is finally over—at least for now. The players’ union (AIC) and the league (Serie A) agreed upon a short-term deal that will allow the season to begin this Friday, with only a week’s worth of games being missed. 
One of the points of contention—the rights of players to participate in first team trainings—is still somewhat unresolved, and a stipulation was added to the deal requiring some sort of closure to the issue within the next 30 days. 
The second component of the strike revolved around a new solidarity tax that the Italian government would have applied to the league’s highest salaried players, but that has now been dropped. 
The strike was a long time coming, and even though it appears to be temporarily over, both sides could renew their conflict in the future once the current one-year contract ends. It was a similar short-term agreement that was enacted after the main collective agreement expired in June of 2010, and the resulting quick-fix didn’t provide much stability, resulting in the strike.  
Both sides also talked about other league-related issues. Specifically, plans that would initiate development programs and add financial assistance towards building new stadiums was postponed. Many of the league’s stadiums are in dire need of updates, and recent financial data has shown that Serie A is losing out on important revenue that could be gained through increased seating capacity, stadium ownership, and facility upgrades. 
Counterfeit problems related to sponsorship were also discussed. Since counterfeiting is so prevalent in Italy, both sponsors and teams are losing out on valuable income due to illegal merchandising
Additionally, clubs now want players to be classified under law as self-employed instead of employees of the organization. Once again, this is an issue that would ultimately help the bottom line and save teams from a few additional expenses. 
Although a complete catastrophe has been avoided, the averted strike just adds more bad press to a Serie A league struggling with image problems. 
Besides the match-fixing scandal that rocked the soccer world back in 2006, the league’s best teams have recently fared poorly in European club competitions, resulting in the loss of a Champion’s League spot that will be transferred to the Bundesliga beginning in the 12/13 season. 
To make matters worse, Udinese recently got booted during the qualifying stages of the Champions League by a decrepit Arsenal side that recently got destroyed 8-2 by Manchester United. Also, Napoli, a surprise entrant into the tournament this year, will struggle to overcome their unlucky group stage, being paired with the newly empowered Manchester City and the longtime German power Bayern Munich—and La Liga’s Villareal. The future hope of Serie A remain firmly in two of their most prestigious teams: Internazionale and AC Milan. 
Cesare Prandelli, Italy’s head coach, is worried that the recent strike and lack of playing time may adversely impact the national team. The team just narrowly defeated the Faroe Islands by a score of 1-0, and the match showed that Italy has a long way to go before regaining their usual stellar form. 
Overall, Italians can breathe a sigh of relief that their national pastime is back on, but they have every right to be worried about what direction the sport is headed.

Girls playing soccer

Over the past few years, girls soccer has become one of the most popular sports in the world. Millions of girls and young women play the sport, and its popularity is only increasing. There are a number of reasons for this popularity. First, girls soccer is a great way to stay fit and active. It requires a lot of running and coordination, and it's a lot of fun. Second, girls soccer is a great way to meet new people and make friends. It's a team sport, so it encourages teamwork and cooperation. Finally, girls soccer is a great way to learn about other cultures. Because it's so popular around the world, girls who play soccer have the opportunity to meet and play with girls from all sorts of different cultures. This can be a great way to learn about new customs and traditions. Girls soccer is a sport that has something for everyone, and it's no wonder that it's so popular.

Since the early 1990s, girls soccer has grown tremendously in the United States. From 1990 to 2009, the number of girls playing soccer in high school increased by nearly 50 percent. The number of girls playing soccer in college has also increased significantly. In 2010, there were over 34,000 women playing college soccer, up from just over 21,000 in 1990.

Investment in girls soccer has also increased significantly in recent years. In 2010, Major League Soccer (MLS) launched the Girls' Development Academy, a nationwide program designed to identify and develop the best young female soccer players in the country. MLS has also invested in the Women's United Soccer Association (WUSA), a professional women's soccer league that launched in 2001.
