So this is the second season I am coaching. I have my little cousins and daughter on my team this year. But all I hear is my uncle saying that I'm not doing it right. He screams about everything.. But the thing is I am teaching them what they are supposed to know. Last season we only lost one game. Then this season we're one down from first game after losing the kids decided to start listening and we won 4 to 2 this past Saturday. I'm at a stand still bc idk if I should even continue to coach. What do y'all think I should do?

Billie, I coach both of my boys in soccer, basketball and baseball for a total of 12 years. The same thing happened to me when a father felt that I was doing something wrong. My response to him was if you feel that way then why don't you take a team and coach it your way. Well he and for one season he coach his son, the following season the boy was back on my team at the boy's request.

Hi Billie! Do what you love doing and try not to pay attention to the noise of what someone or other may be saying. If you're doing the best you can, are enjoying it, and most importantly the kids are having fun then keep at it!

I do enjoy coaching them.. this is the most important part of them learning is in k1 bc it sets them up for what they will learn ever year after. Were working on goal/side kicks throw ins passing/ sharing ball as a team and were working on goalies and making goals. Only 4 kids on my team have ever played before so its a big deal for them to get everything learned. But I dont know how long I can bite my tongue and just listen to him he can't coach bc he has assaults on his record and I honestly think that he's just mad bc I could pass the backround check and he can't. My son will be in k1 soccer in a year and I was really looking forward to teaching him and his team.

Continue coaching and don't let your uncle distract you. Everyone has a different method of doing things, but remember you are the coach and not him. If the team is winning, then you are doing something right and the kids are listening.

If it's something you enjoy doing, then keep doing it! Don't listen to your uncle.
