What would you rather: A) A coach who is friendly, the kids have a good time, but they don't really learn anything technical. Just laid back practices. Your child has lot's of friends. Over a year no real progress was made. B) A coach that teaches the all of basic skills, but is not laid back. Maybe even loud. Soccer is the priority. Pushes the kids to be better, repeat drills until they are correct. Your kid can make new friends.
