College athlete giving sports (soccer) lessons and leadership skill lessons on how to work together and as a team in order to succeed
I am a former Division I college athlete who played soccer at the Univ. of Florida. in Gainesville, FL. I have been coaching for the last 6 years on/off, as well as working for a kids program that teaches soccer through team building activities, sportsmanship, etc. I have worked for a university, as well as a professional team in Orlando, FL. Some lessons structures I have are creating lesson plans for each session with a theme, health/wellness incorporated into it. Also, engaging with the kids by teaching skills and techniques in a fun, educational environment, all while getting to know them and showing them the importance of teamwork, building self-confidence and how to better others, all while trying to better themselves. I have also started to offer yoga sessions before/after class and it has been very beneficial.
