........ so the time has arrived for which ive been waiting for.......... a week of just coaching football....... i thought that im going to enjoy this camp...... and loved it even more wen i checked out my facilities because i found out i was going to be coaching on a realy nice looking 3G pitch!!......... this was short lived wen i turned up to camp thinking ill have 12 kids to coach but actualy 18 turn up to my camp.......... but the coaching ratios are 10:1 but 12:1 maximum......... so i knew im guna hav my hands full for the week and its realy guna b a test of my coaching abilities..........

...... so the first day was a decent day because i had all the kids under control and they were all pretty good at listening.... and a high school PE teacher gave a compliment to my supervisor asking if we were teachers back home because of how organised we were and also about how much control we had over the kids.......... and he wasnt even near my camp cos he was on the field next to mine with my fellow coaches camp......... but all this would be short lived as the rest of the week was a knightmare as the kids got to know each other and mess about and jus talk over me........... so for the first time ever i start having to be much more firmer and even stick kids in timeout which over here they see as a serious thing and it realy get them thinkin about their actions............ but im making them sound bad but luckily they wasnt like this all of the time.... jus ocassionaly but this is understandable because i did have them for 4 hours a day in ridiculous heats and also it was very humid......... but this doesnt help wen ur on 3G grass because it absorbs the heat even more and make it feel even hotter.......... my coaches on the next field sed that every time they looked over, all they could see from my waist down was them heat waves u normally see on the roads......... which jus shows how how it was wen i was coaching....... it was so hot that before my kids even arrived i was sweating so much it was untrue......... but it all part of the experience so i jus cracked on n tried to deliver a gd professional session as always.... :D!!!

......... but in the end all the kids went away saying they enjoyed their week of soccer, so thats all i care about :)..............


........... so after i finished my soccer camp 9-1 i had time to pack up and head home to relax for afew hours before i had to head to my tennis camp at 4:30.... luckily i was with max who is an actual tennis coach bk home....... so i felt alot happily that this aint guna b an epic fail......... but the thing that got is that in the morning i have 18 kids and im on my own coaching but in the evening we had 3 kids but 2 coaches!!!........ sumtimes u have to question what this company is about lol ahah onli jokin............ but the three kids were lots of fun, n they jus enjoyed all the games we decided to play....... but wierdly they seemed to love the not tennis related sport more than actual tennis...... wen tennis is the programme that they had signed up for hahah............. im glad i did this tennis camp because i was rubbish at tennis but after on afew hours of actualy doin and coaching tennis, my skill greatly improved and i actualy enjoyed it!! good times...... another reason why im happy im in america........ im actualy learning new things all the time, getting paid and seeing all the sights :)!....... boom cmon....... this week also marks the halfway mark for my time in america....... so mean my time in america is running out but im guna make sure i still love every minute .......
