One of the things I've learned (21 year old Head/Assistant Coach here for young kids in the States) is that there is a huge 'Old Dogs' club mentality with coaching. If you are an assistant, it's difficult to get involved big time when head coaches are very controlling. Likewise becoming a head coach can be difficult when there are older people also looking to coach
This is very true, a lot of people coach to feel important or to be in a position of power..

My tip, be patient with kids, do something fun at the end of each practice, share some of your pm best and worst playing experiences...(life lessons)

AND ALWAYS KEEP IT POSTIVE EVEN IF YOU HAVE TO MAKE IT UP !

You need a foundation to build on !
