    I hear what your saying. I've also helped with rides, hahded down soccer cleats etc. It's unfortunate you weren't shown appreciation from the family/player. It's a much easier pill to swallow when your are least given a 'thank you'. Every situation is unique. It's just easy to generalize on a few experiences.

    I'm not coaching this year and have noticed lots of time on my hands. I think I'll make more money working this year but it was also a labour of love.

    I think every coach at some point has tried to help. Made sacrifices. Took bad shifts or even missed opportunities at work to be on the field. Spent hours giving other people rides.

    Honestly I love volunteering as a coach, interacting with the kids, even mentoring if you will.

    I never had so many friends and aquaintences as an adult since I started 6 years ago.

    You will miss it. :cool:

    At the same time I love watching my other kids play (who Im not coaching) and being able to focus on them a lot more.
