This past weekend I attended the C-License course in Waterloo, Ontario.
The course provided by Ontario Soccer was attended by around 50 coaches across Ontario, split into two groups. It took up the whole weekend from 8.30am-5.30pm and I go back again this weekend for the next part.
I always remember playing football in the back garden from a very young age. We had a small garden that had three tiers. The bottom tier was made of concrete patio stones and was probably around 12′ x 20′. Our neighbours fence would provide the goal and my brother and I would play simple games like first to score 5 goals. We’d have lots of fun until the ball went over the fence. It was a great motivator to keep the ball low.
