#56558 mwichmann : I'd say the sad truth is if you aren't a former player of some repute, it's a hard profession to break into (and I do speak from some experience). This in spite of most places claiming they have a coaching shortage, which comes from the fact there's a very high attrition rate early on, people can't take it. The general path is do take some courses if you have access to good ones, do some volunteering, see if you can build a bit of a reputation or at least some coaches who will speak up for you. When I pursued it (it wasn't a bid to become a full-time professional, mind), I volunteered, and always took time to do little things... I'd make sure I welcomed the referees to our field when they arrived, I would have a chat with opposing coaches, I'd make sure if some opposing players had a particularly good game that I sought them out and told them so (you should see what that does for a 16-17 year old!). I built a lot of respect for our program this way, which I think it still benefits a bit from. Pretty much, I had the impression I could have had a job anywhere else in the district if I could have moved for it, but since that wasn't in the cards, and I had no luck becoming an "insider" in our small community, it went nowhere in the end. But I loved it.

So, I'm going to Seattle this year, where I'm going to pick up... well... a few U20 coaching licenses. Not all of them, but I think I'll be licensed for U16 or U17 teams by the end of the year. Although, I will be playing simultaneously, so we'll see what's going to happen. I'm still 19... perhaps someone's going to be crazy enough to give me a shot, eh?

I'll let EVERYONE know if I'm a youth coach in FM 13 ;), and you're ALL going to hire me
