Saw about 15 minutes of a CUSA team as I was packing up and talking to people and they were surprisingly decent.
Also, don't know why but it really bothered me that the OE staff was eating a pizza on the bench during the U15 game. Not that big of a deal in the grand scheme of things but it just seemed very unprofessional.
A few years back i was at a U-18 women's game and the 2 Coach's weren't happy with their team so they decided to order a pizza and pop and pretended that the game didn't mean anything since the players weren't playing up to par.
I've also seen the same 2 Coach's hold up newspaper as if they were they weren't interested in Coaching the game since the play wasn't any good.
One Coach went as far as bringing his kids little bench and showing his player(s) where he wanted them to sit on the field since they weren't moving.
Every Coach has their own style and these to Coach's were very successful getting their players attention and teaching them a few lessons along the way. The parents loved it!
Sarcasm goes a long way.....!
