US Youth Soccer - Responsible Coaching Awards

This seems like a contest that should get some last minute promotion. From Twitter: USYouthSoccer: Final days to nominate a coach you know, Here's the clip from their US Youth Soccer site: Do you know a coach who demonstrates a commitment to excellence on and off the field? US Youth Soccer and Liberty Mutual seek to recognize and honor these important individuals who volunteer their time to help make our children's youth sports experience rewarding. These coaches are often the unsung local heroes – teaching lessons through youth sports that translate into life. That's why we established the Responsible Coaching Awards – to recognize and celebrate these valuable coaches. Tell us about a coach you know that deserves recognition for his or her commitment to responsibility in youth sports. But time is running out! Nominations are only being accepted until February 28!

starting as a goalkeeping coach

this is my second season as a coach, and my first as a goalkeeping coach. i have managed to fall into coaching by accident really. last year i joined a local team with the idea of just keeping fit,but managed to somehow end up taking weekly training with absolutely no clue what i was doing. this year i decided to do things right and to train myself as a coach. as a player i was a goalkeeper, so therefore goalkeeping coaching seems to be the way forward for me(go with what you know and all that).now again this season i have managed to fall in with a junior team (u14s) and i am running a weekly goalkeepers clinic. problem is that every week i am getting more keepers that want to train and learn the crazy gracefull art of a goalkeeper, and i am now struggling to provide new and intertaining ways to help these young guys to be the best that they can be.i have no professional qualifications myself (as yet!), and am building training plans from what i can glean from a number of websites and friends, but i seem to have hit a wall, as there is limited resources on the internet, and i am starting to repeat previous exercises from earlier in the year.So my plea to everyone is for any help that anyone can provide, whether it is training drills or writing session plans, or any little nuggets of wisdom that can passed on.i believe these young boys deserve the chance to reach their full potential and maybe become succesfull footballers in the future, and also for me to become the best that i can be as a coach.I look forward to hearing from you all, and all advice will be gratefully recieved.Thanks Steven.

Red Card from SoccerClub

Earlier we posted our first draft of our Rules for Membership to SoccerClub. The rules come down to show respect and don't screw around with anyone. We get constant notes about some of the "agents" offering to help players and coaches find teams. They are difficult at times to investigate since we don't want to punish and honest person doing honest work. However, what we have learned is that old classic; if it smells rotten, then it probably is.

As a result, we have started to ban some users, and I will keep a running list here in case these situations and pitches come back again, then we can squash them again. I posted their notes "as is" so you can identify if hese cases come up again at SoccerClub, or on another site that you are using. Please note that these are posted as written. If you decide to use these emails, you are doing so at your own risk.
