Youth Sports Coach Tip - Creating Fun

Youth sports coaching tips of the day
Know the things that create fun for kids:
 
1. Be sure to make every team member feel like they are an important part of the team, not just the big contributors.
2. Give as equal amounts of attention to every player.
3. Be fair - It is difficult for players to have fun if their teammates are unfairly treated in their estimation.
4. Make all feel like they are progressing. Fun is having a feeling of success. Point out every ounce of improvement and to their parents too.
5. Encourage social interaction among teammates. Strict rules and practices when kids do not have time to socialize are a big turnoff for most young players.
6. Embrace each player's personality and encourage all to do the same.
