The growth of the game in the United States is at all-time high thanks largely to its induction into the Olympic games. Athletes of all shapes and sizes, from a diverse array of competitive backgrounds, are ready to test their abilities in a new sport. Also, the epidemic of obesity among young people has parents, teachers, and administrators eagerly anticipating new and creative options for kids to pick up a ball and run with it. In order to meet this important demand, we need knowledgeable and enthusiastic coaches to help make a difference in the lives of young athletes.
