Any coaches out there that can give me some advice going forward, or ones who have recently started coaching?

Thanks
just do it, find a team that needs help and go for it. I have been coaching 7 years now, i was coaching peewee/bantam but now i have kids and i coach my 6 year olds team. its alot of fun, there is a lot of work that goes into it but thinking the game and teaching is rewarding if you have a passion for it.
