If you’re like a lot of parent-coaches, stepping onto the field for the first time can be a daunting prospect. I mean you probably got roped into the assignment because someone called you and said they wouldn’t be able to have a team unless you stepped up to coach.

For starters, you’re not alone. US Lacrosse has a number of resources available for beginning coaches through its Coach Development Program (listed at the end of this blog), and I highly recommend that you take advantage of them.
