There’s something remarkably satisfying about giving back to the community… but finding an area to give back in can be the hardest part.
If you love sport, which, let’s be honest, you should, then perhaps coaching a junior sporting team is the way to go. Sure it takes up a lot of time but it’s better than sinking beers or watching brain numbing television for hours.
If you haven’t got the skills or experience, there are plenty of coaching courses that you can enrol in and the club for which you intend to coach will usually fork out the bill. Not only will you attain new skills that you can impart to young minds, you’ll find great satisfaction in watching them improve and having fun along the way. Who knows, you might even become a bit of a mentor to some.
You’d be surprised what coaching kids can actually teach you about yourself too.
Go on, do it!
