You would have to agree that it is fantastic to see hundreds of kids running around on the park on practise nights. The reason that I got my kids involved in football was to have them active, joining in a team environment and being involved with some great adult role models. From my perspective adults that volunteer and give up their time to coach kids are great people and the type of people I want my kids to be around. Our junior and youth coaches are great people doing a fantastic job - THANK YOU!!!
One problem all coaches are facing is that of more teams needing to fit into our training areas - this has caused a little bit of friction at times but it is nice to see coaches able to work through the issues and share the area available. With a little cooperation and give and take we can all fit in and continue the positive work with the kids. If difficulties do arise shout out to one of the committee members who are often floating around and talk it through, solutions are usually not too hard to find if everyone remembers we are all there to work with kids and be positive role models as coaches and adults.
Pukekohe AFC is going from strength to strength and growing pains are to be expected - lets work through them with a smile.
Good luck to everyone for the rest of the season!
