So Strikers FC -Whittier will now start using LMSA as a farm system.
Not a bad idea.
If the LMSA BOD has any brains at all they will work with the Strkers to help develop the quality of the rec program. Training, development and such.
They are heads above the little the LMSA coaching a signature staff can offer.

no way. Davis' ego won't let him ask for guidance from the club. and why would the club need to assist LMSA? they just sit back and wait for any athletes who might be interested in improving their game at the club level.

I think if LMSA BOD allowed that the league would be destroyed. Its pretty sad the BOD of LMSA won't allow club players an option to play club in the Fall but its okay for Teams to play State Cup and play club in the Spring.

LMSA BOD serving yours truly.

I have heard of former LMSA coaches who left club truly would come back to help and make the league better.

do you mean that they won't allow rec/sig teams to play club in Fall, when they allow them to play in spring?

they would get crushed in fall, when club kids who also play baseball, other sports return to full time soccer.

Not that I am a Bobby D fan but no one has more experience at club, State Cup level than he does with in our organization. He is constantly looking for ways to improve the coaching skills, organization and comrardery of all those who dare to take the mantle of being called a soccer coach.

I agree Bob coaches, volunteers his time on the board without any kids or anyone. He spends alot of time in helping and has a lot of experience. I dont think LMSA has any great coaches but there are a lot of quality people who help out in the league who coach and referee.

I do not believe he ever played but when you take his age in to account it would be very improbable that there were any local leagues when Moses was walking the planet (just Kidding) I believe he has coached for 25 years, altough some my not consider that a great coach. Truly experience and overlay the volunteering his time. While other will only coach for a paycheck. Speaks volumes for me.

How about we start here-
Definition of a good coach "a coach that makes a player better", a great coach takes them to another level.

A great coach doesn't just train or educate a player. A great coach will be remembered for a long time as the one who motivated and provided the confidence in the young player that they can excel into the great player. Too many don't see that need at a young age. How many young quit because of the bad experience or burn out that they received from the controling trainer or coach holding grudges? Anyone can pull drills off line or from a class or buy them ice cream or cleats.

I defined my success by the number of kids who returned each successive season. By how many approach me with a smile and a "Hi Coach!" even after 10 years. And by how often I took teams with less skill and quietly coached them to wins against "better" teams with coaches who boasted about how good they were. Miss wanted to play for me. They improved each year and now are successful HS, club or college players. One doesn't have to hold a high level license to be a teaching coach.

Total agree about the happy feeling but is that what we are talking about here. Above stated great is next level, what is the highest level you have coached? Most rec coaches get the hi coach just because they took the time and became friends not because they are talented coaches. Saying a high level - although that doesn't make you a great or even a good coach- it does give you a better understanding of what to do isn't that the same thing about college education.

It's not about the level you're at, or your w/L record. if that's the basis then you're only thinking about your own ego. A great coach understands human behavior, nurtures kids, comes along side them and understands how to motivate and encourage them. Big Dog, Tim and Albert I'm glad you're interested in learning. You're all great volunteers but could use a little more depth in your approach. study the pyramid.

Nobody said anything about WINNING it is about what or where you are able to take the kids and show the kids. If you are training at the same level as the kids play then you aren't taking them to the next level IMHO. If you don't have experience or knowledge at higher levels then how do you know where you are going. The point I am trying to make here is learn more -outside the small LMSA world- so that you can take the kids to a higher level, if you haven't or been to a higher levels of play as a coach then you don't know, BTW I have your book.
Still don't think that because you get paid or you played that's makes you a good coach. If you are a dad or haven't played at the highest level that you can't be a great coach non-sense. Get educated learn more go to coaching clinics talk to other coaches that have been there expand your knowledge base be a better coach then the kids are players expose yourself to more knowledge, learn and teach.

Not to be an a@# but please explain "more depth" I am asking so that I can understand better THX

I would contend that having kids remember how you made a positive impact in their life is a benefit of being a good coach. If you are not making some marginal positive impact in the kids lives,then Why coach? That is the payment us volunteers receive. I always have felt that a great coach is one who makes those tough decisions regardless of popularity, financial benefit, or ego.
