Youth team coaches
by: Chris

This is a good question? I think that depends on the experience of the coach and his or her philosophy. If he or she has played and coached for a long period of time, just one coach will be fine. The coach has to be able to handle practice and games.

If the coach is new to soccer, he or she might require some help with practice set up and ideas, as well as games i.e. subs, time management and warm ups - one takes team and other gets the goalkeeper?

Regardless, if there are two coaches you must be on the same page and agree on how the team will be handled. Last thing you want to see is confused kids because they are getting mixed messages.
