How to Handle a Bad Coach

Soccer tips on how to handle a bad or mean coach.  The reality is not all coaches are great, just like not all coaches are bad. Occasionally you will have to deal with a bad coach or a coach that is mean to you. 

For example, a coach doesn't seem to pay attention to you but he talks to the starters a lot. Or she doesn't play players in the right position. Or she yells at you. 


Key Points to Handling a Bad Coach:
1. Control what you can control which is playing great, being positive and working hard for yourself and your teammates. Don't stress and waste your time complaining about the coach and what they are doing. You can't control them or their actions, so don't try to. 

2. Write a letter or email to the coach! If after a few weeks the coach still is being mean to you or not showing you attention write them a letter expressing your feelings. In this letter be positive, say something nice about the coach, then express your feelings and concerns, offer a suggestion on how you or the team would play better if something was different, then finish with something nice again. 

I recommend you a write a letter versus speaking your concerns in person because this will allow you to clearly communicate what you want to say and it doesn't give the coach a chance to cut you off while you are talking if they aren't a good listener. 

3. Find a new team! If after a season the coach has not changed their opinions towards you and things have not gotten better it is time for a new team. You don't want to be a quitter, but if you give it a season, you've been positive, worked hard, written a letter and nothing has changed, it's time to move on. 

4. Before you do key points 2 and 3 make sure you have done key point number 1 for a few weeks. The coach may come around to you quicker then you think if they see how hard you are working! 


Bonus Tips!
