Recreational Corner - Mark Register
RECREATIONAL CORNER: Soccer is fun! U6 Mark Register's "Soccer Rockers"
JFC offers programs for players of all levels of play. JFC's recreational program is open to players ages 4-19 years old. This month, we spoke with U6 recreational "soccer rockers" coach Mark Register.
1. How long have you been a rec coach? Since 2009 when JFC was First Coast Soccer Association. I have a wall of fame in my garage of all of our team pictures. I did go into retirement briefly when my two daughters, Reese and Tatum, made it onto travel teams. I came out of retirement when my son Tillman was old enough to hit the pitch.
2. Why did you become a coach? My oldest daughter first did Pop Warner cheerleading. Fortunately we introduced her to soccer and she has loved it. I wanted to coach her team from the beginning. Even though I knew little about the game, the library, you tube, and JFC coaching clinics helped me figure things out. Coaching helps me to be closer to my kids and puts me in a position to be a positive influence on other kids. I also keep in mind that my assistant coaches may want to go on to coach rec teams themselves. If I can foster an environment of skill development that is age appropriate, then it gives the assistant coach a good foundation for coaching his/her own team. Plus, if people see that Mark Register can coach, they probably figure coaching can't be too complicated and that will give them more confidence to put on the coaching shirt.
3. Why do you like to coach? I had some really great coaches and some really bad coaches when I was growing up. I like to emulate the really great coaches I had. Coaching gives me a first hand opportunity to help kids develop character and unlock their potential. It gives me license to email great sports quotes to parents on the night before the game too. I really embrace the code of conduct; even though the games can become intense (even at u6), it is reassuring to know that parents and players have the same understanding of how to manage themselves and keep sportsmanship as a top priority. Of course, adding to my wardrobe each season with a JFC coaching shirt is an awesome fringe benefit.
JFC is our home away from home. The pitch is a great place to raise kids.
