Coaching Youth Fooball - Football Plays

When I was a coach for track & cross-country, I felt my college education and experience was setting a good foundation of knowledge I needed to coach the kids the best I could. My degree is in exercise science, I am a CSCS (certified strength & conditioning specialist), and have been around sports performance since high school, first on the rehab side of things, then on the strength & conditoning level of it. My first coaching job paid very little ($1000 for the season, the T&F was a volunteer job!). It added to my salary as a personal trainer/fitness center manager in the club I was working in. My flexible training schedule made it easy for me to coach in the afternoons/evenings for a short time frame.

I now am employed full-time for a fitness center that houses a sports training franchise, and make a decent living at it. I also do online training as a 'part time job/hobby' in my spare time now, and do 'coaching' online to athletes and fitness clients.

I didn't take any School courses to become a Coach. I loved Sports so much the window of opportunity just open 1 day @ a Junior High and I've been doing it now for 6 years. Sure I took ASEP which you have to be certified at here in Illinois. Also took the American Coaching Academy online which opened my eyes about all kinds of situations that occur with your student/athletes to what to do with rowdy parents. Really helped me to understand in more broad terms how have things have changed throughout the Coaching spectrum. But in all honesty trial and error have helped me the 1st few years in getting my feet wet ad helping me become the Coach I am today. It's a rewarding profession or in my case part time job which pay's a bit. To help mold,mentor young kid and putting them in a position to succeed is gratifying to say the least.
