I am coaching a 3rd and 4th grade co-ed soccer team this fall with a local church in my area. It is a joy to coach the kids with some coming from various backgrounds and no church affiliation. Last night was probably one the hardest nights I've had coaching kids. I know I am not alone in having hard nights or teams. I am the only coach of 9 kids, 4 girls and 5 boys. I am asking a parent to help me during practice but no takers yet. :) I have some challenging personalities and keeping them attentive along with encouraging one another. What are some suggestions for this age group to help them focus especially if you have one that helps rally the troops negatively?
