Volunteer Coaches

first_imgEach sports year schools are more and more dependent on volunteers to fill their coaching positions.  There are several reasons for this.  First of all, what used to be a normal way for a teacher to pick up extra money was to coach something.  Today most teachers don’t have time to do this.  Their teaching load does not allow it.Another reason is the number of sports and extra curricular activities that schools provide.  In the old days, schools offered 5 or 6 sports during a year and now they may have 18 or more sports (this is counting both boys and girls).  Also, the sports must pay their own way and they do not offer stipends for the number of assistant coaches that are needed.  This means volunteers who do not expect pay must fill the positions.Stay tuned for more on this tomorrow.last_img read more

Iwobi: How Mikel influenced my Super Eagles career

first_img Since making his debut for the national team in October 2015, Iwobi has grown to become one of the important players in the new Super Eagles set up. Iwobi who spoke to the Super Eagles media team credited his former skipper for his quick adaptation into the African brand of football. “In training, whilst watching him on the pitch, whilst I’m on the bench watching him, I’ve always learned, the way he’s physically capable to keep the ball in tight situations because playing in African culture there’s a lot more physicality, there are a lot more strong duels, the way he’s able to use his body is something I have picked up and try to add to my game.” Iwobi said.Advertisement Iwobi enjoyed good success with John Mikel Obi in the National before his retirement in 2019. They both helped Nigeria qualify for the 2018 FIFA World Cup in Russia and the pair also helped the team finished third in the 2019 African cup of Nations in Egypt. read also:Iwobi to face title chasing Liverpool on neutral ground Meanwhile, since the departure of the former Chelsea and Trabzonspor’s midfielder from the three-time African champions, Iwobi has stepped up into his role and currently operates as the number 10 for Gernot Rohr’s side.

Clichy: Vieira was never replaced

first_img “He was the guy putting in tackles and training as hard as anybody else so as a young player you have two ways of seeing this. Either you say, ‘Wow this guy is the captain of the club, has won this, won that, if he is training like this I cannot do less. I will not be better than him because quality is quality but in terms of commitment and hard work, I have to match that.’ “Then you have those players who will think, ‘If this guy is behaving like this there’s no way I can catch him up so there’s no point for me to train.’ Unfortunately, I have seen players behave like this and have that attitude. read also:Vieira reveals Arsenal manager’s job admission after Arteta appointment “For me on my side I always thought, ‘If these guys are doing this, I cannot allow myself to do less.’ Again, it is not about quality but it is about commitment in training. I do feel that when Patrick left, we had great players coming in, but that space he had within the team, within the club, was perhaps too big to fill for any player.” FacebookTwitterWhatsAppEmail分享 Former Arsenal fullback, Gael Clichy, has lauded Patrick Vieira for his leadership skills. Vieira was the captain of Arsenal during one of their most successful periods, which included their Invincibles season of 2003/04. “Patrick was someone who, when he was on the pitch in training, I felt pressure,” Clichy told the club’s website. “Not because he was shouting at young players or because he was demanding too much, but just because of his charisma and the way he was.Advertisement Loading… Promoted Content7 Universities In The World Where Education Costs Too MuchCan Playing Too Many Video Games Hurt Your Body?7 Ways To Understand Your Girlfriend BetterLaugh, Cry, Or Just Relax With The Best Series Streaming On HBO6 Ridiculous Health Myths That Are Actually True12 Movies That Almost Ended Their Stars’ Careers6 Amazing Shows From The 90s That Need A Reboot Right NowPortuguese Street Artist Creates Hyper-Realistic 3D Graffiti10 Hyper-Realistic 3D Street Art By OdeithWho Earns More Than Ronaldo?Ever Thought Of Sleeping Next To Celebs?
