Will I need to coach more, or less from the sideline during a game?
Question 5:
Will I need to coach more, or less from the sideline during a game?
SUE RYAN, Region I Head Coach, College Coach, National US Youth Soccer Girls Coach of the Year.

In terms of coaching from the sidelines, I have always felt that the more coaches talk from the sidelines the less players will listen because they simply tune the coach out. Changing the number of players on the field will not affect the amount of talking from the sideline. If it does, the talking will probably be decreased since the players will have a clearer picture of the game and be less confused. At higher levels of play coaches who have not done their job well in training must make up for it during the game.
