It is almost 4:30pm and the first session of the day is about to begin here at the Academy.
Walking over to the printer to pick up the lesson plan that has been planned and printed earlier in the day a coach may revisit the messages soon to be shared and images they desire to see from the players.
The determination to lead the session from a selfless position in hopes that there will be another step forward in the process of learning both for the players and coach.
Now exiting the building and taking the first few steps on the field to notice some of the players have already arrived and began to share a ball with their teammate.
Being 40 yards from the designated location for training and seeing two players running towards you almost in a competition of who is going to say hello first is a feeling that makes all of the efforts worth it!
The littlest actions can have the biggest impacts.
Yours in soccer,
