Coaching Clinic Handout

Former Head Coach Paul LaBarbera ran a coaching clinic and these were the classroom notes.  Lots of great info here for new coaches.  Most importatnt rules: No Laps (around the field), Lectures (with you talking to them and them not doing), or Lines (with them waiting to get touches on the ball).  Keep the kids with a ball for each kid at thier feet every minute of the practice and they will get fit, get more skills, and learn the game fast.
