A major tennant of being a great coach is continuing education. Those who believe they know it all are truly lost.

good comments Timmi J. I might have underestimated you. If so I apologize. Your coaching style and philosophy might have evolved since my experiences with you a few years ago. I sure hope so and I wish you continued growth.

As do I apologize, all I ever want is for the kids to have a love for the sport and to have them play at the highest level possible. There are many pressures on a coach and to remember that we are all human, and we all suffer from the frailties of being human.

I am 24 years old and played soccer at the heart of the ayso days. I was on all stars for many years and played with amazing athletes. I also had many amazing coaches throughout the years, only some of which I think about today. Some of those include rich mason, mr Nima, Terry heatherly, John savino, and Bob Davis. I adored each and every one of these men and they taught me more than just soccer skills. Although some of the above are no longer with us, they left an ever lasting impact on my life.
I'll focus on bob since he seems to get a lot of crap on this blog. He is a great coach who not only cares about the game and all aspects of it, but he genuinely cares about the players in which hen has coached in the past. I think he is an amazing person and it shows. You need to remember his children are grown, his youngest is 22-23 years old and he has still been part of the soccer association throughout all the changes. That should show everyone he wants to make the community better in the way he knows how, and that's to focus on teaching the youth the game of sccer. I'm sure he has made mistakes as a coach and person, but everyone does that and when you compare other coaches and people involved, it could be a lot worse.
I think the board is doing a good job volunteering their time and putting their input on trying tonmakenthe league great. I have been going back after years of being away because my niece now plays and when I see people like bob Davis still
Out there it makes me smile. I still to this day call him coach bob and I think more people need to focus on the good of people instead of a couple of things they do wrong.
Some other coaches and volunteers in the league are not leading the league like my former coaches did and I wish lmsa had more people like rich mason, mr Nima, Terry heatherly, John savino and bob Davis to make sure la mirada remains what it always have been.

That's just my two cents as someone who lived through it and shaped me into what kind of person I am today, not only as an athlete but as a person.

And because of those individuals you will one day be a great coach because even if you do not know it you are already on the path to coach and make a difference in the lives of many adult and youths.

funny isn't it? you are the ONLY one who ever comes on this blog and toots your horn.

beach soccer is a novelty. like saying the guy who wins the home run contest at the all-star game is the best hitter in the game.

what is the turnover rate among players on your team? since you left lmsa to play at Xplosion until today? how many have stuck with you since the beginning? be honest.

its simple, see for yourself go to xplosionsc.com . They have a nice picture. Since you are on the subject of recruiting & taking players: why do you attempt to push La habra onto La Mirada because its known that LH takes the players. Beach Soccer a novelty- you don't have a clue- what Cardio is all about. Real Football is not played with your hands. so if you want to learn which is the Real sport comeout to XplosionSC fields and try to keep up with our Futbol/Footbal/Soccer Players by the way the warmup is 2 miles

cardio? you think cardio is relevant only to beach soccer? who is clueless?

i didn't mention anything about "recruiting" dingbat. i asked - and you failed to answer - a question regarding retention on your team. after one or two seasons, how many kids/families stayed to put up with your daddy ball BS? is your boy still center forward or not? you can't coach him forever, and reality will one day hit home.

try a little humility.

pssh. 2 miles. and do you do anything while they all cut corners, lag, and horse around? clueless is right, daddy. Its time to cut the cord so those talented boys can actually listen and respect a legitimate coach.

Hope that 2 miles is with a soccer ball working proper tech, you know proper training, keeping up isn't a problem. To many people think that running makes soccer players skills make soccer players

like the warmup responses; fact: being obese takes away 10 years of your life. see MD journal for whole story. Back to Soccer: a good indicator of you doing things positively for your Soccer Team is when: 80% or more attend practices inbetween summer activities and when the Team attends Summer tournaments without having to borrow players. I am sure that those being negative nags.., don't have this level of Team partcipation; however, positive training with positive results will get you there..

slow down... decaf is recommended. if you truely know this Team, then your comment is "out of line,". We know this is a blog, but the other ball sports have enough drama. If you are unable to be more specific then change blogs to the other sports, Soccer doesn't need drama papas..... have a nice day

Really that is the best you got.
Again you keep patting yourself on the back but for what, running 2 miles without a soccer ball that is so baseball sorry baseball guys, get a clue and learn how to train not the way you were taught but with new and better methods thjat have been learned, running makes athletes not soccer players. Running is a part of soccer just like all the other skills but learning how - when and why is much more important. If you only have a small amount of time with he kids why waste it on just running use economical training you know the stuff that you went to class to learn.

Why r u surprised ? Every year since forever the Benton or Los C has been closed in August for reseeding or just to let the grass grow unhindered.

The field looks horrible. I know the carnival did that but still we need to let the fields heal. Would you rather our kids play on dirt ?

This is the problem with the LMSA BOD's. They try to blame others for their ignorance and inability to understand long range planning and direction.
