The latest episode of Cal South’s soccer podcast, “The Bear and the Ball,” is available to stream or download for your listening pleasure today!

Coaching young kids is one of the most rewarding things a coach can do. Their minds are like sponges, and they have a simple desire to learn and, most importantly, have fun. However, sometimes coaches get caught inside the trap of coaching only to win.

On this week’s episode of “The Bear and the Ball,” we speak with Bill Songhurst, a man who has coached at all levels of the game and who now primarily works on teaching the game to young children. His insights are a must for anyone who is working with young soccer players.
