S11 Episode 01: Coaching Kids Sports

Volunteer coach Bryan Duncan gives tips for youth sports coaches and explains why he has loved coaching multiple teams over the past 13 years.

This episode is part of Series 11: Volunteers. For a list of ParkTalk episodes and series visit  

Quote from the episode:

“One of the lessons I’ve learned is that in soccer in particular, the coaching happens really on the sideline and sitting down. So my wife bought me a bench, and I use it to this day, it’s kind of beat up, and the kids all know what it is. The idea is that you sit there and if a kid made a good or bad play, you wait until they are subbed out or at halftime and then encourage them the best you can.” - Bryan
