A father of 2 sports centric boys I had no choice but to learn to coach.  Even in an unofficial capacity, when I see my children struggle with a sport or any activity, I want to go out there and offer up some pointers.  Unfortunately for me, I never played many sports as a child.   It's not that I'm nonathletic, I just lack the hands-on experience in team sports. But I can learn, that I've always been able to do.        

So now its laid out, the task at hand - coach my children to become talented athletes without having played a down of football, inning of baseball, period of soccer etc...  

As I undertake this journey I will write about my experiences and thoughts so others who may find themselves in similar situations can benefit.  Hopefully this may encourage other parents to take that leap into coaching their kids.
