Soccer Playing Power Rangers Leadership Experience Essay Many times in life you learn valuable lessons when you least expect them During the fall of my sophomore year I decided to coach my little brothers recreational soccer team I had already been playing for almost ten years and I thought coaching no big deal But when we had our first practice in early September I realized the true extent of my predicament There I was knee deep in seven year-olds trying to explain a corner-kick but they were too busy screaming and fighting like Pokemon and Power Rangers The hardest part about practice was keeping my temper through the endless I need to pee come catch me and I dont want to play today And the practices were still only part of the problem Two weeks after our first day of practice we were scheduled for a game Yes a game Now I had to let my team an extension of my own knowledge and abilities out onto the field to fend for themselves It was a nightmare I wouldnt really even classify the afternoon as soccer It was closer to an excuse for little kids to romp around in bright yellow shirts and kick each other It didnt matter which team you were on or if you had the ball or not you just needed to be kicked Yet as I ran onto the field after our championship win I realized what a blessing every little boy had been They taught me much more than I taught them I taught corner-kicks They taught patience I taught dribbling They taught self-control I found that after our season I had developed a new appreciation for my parents teachers and coaches My boys were blessings in disguise and Im thankful for every one
