Most of my coaching experience has been coaching girls, but I've coached both boys and girls from ages U-8 through U-17. I'm a big believer in the need for developing technical players, but it's frustrating that most don't want to spend the time on their own to really excel. I've had a lot of parents ask me questions about many aspects of the game and select soccer in general. So, I decided to start this blog to talk about some of those things and just about anything else I love about the game or the teams and leagues I follow.
Most of my players always have a question about something and they nearly always start with "Hey Coach Doug..." and thus the name of this blog was born.
I would love to connect with you and hear your thoughts, share ideas, suggestions and feedback. Contact me at firstname.lastname@example.org and follow me on Twitter at HeyCoachDoug
I'm migrating my blog from Wordpress. I won't close that blog out, but I don't plan to migrate all of my previous posts. If you would like to check them out, you can find them at http://heycoachdoug.wordpress.com/
