Coaches tips

Occasionally, we'll post coaching tips to help provide for a great experience for coaches, kids and parents on each team.  Below is tip #2:

Choose a captain for each game and rotate captains so that each child has the chance to be captain at least once.  Captains lead your teams after huddles ("1, 2, 3... Go Blue Eagles"), can lead your team in the post-game high-five line, introduce them to refs before each game as your captain, lead your team in pre-practice stretches and anything else you can think of!  Since we're already past the half-way point of this season, elect multiple captains for each game.  Reward kids who "go above and beyond," show great sportsmanship, hustle in practice regardless of skill level and the kids who simply work hardest for the week.  If you'd like, reward each kid with a small prize or gift for being the captain for the week.  Make sure you reward kids for hustle and hard work - not just for the most points scored or certain stats.
