Blaine coached my 9 year old son at Club Football in Beijing China in 2016 for about a year. During that time, he taught the children not only the skills of football but also the skills to manage the given situation by controlling their emotions. Once the team had to play against the team which plays very rough and the children were very upset and lost their control. After the game, he shared how the children can over come and take advantage of such a situation by controlling themselves. I was very impressed by the way Blaine took this opportunity to provide very important lesson to the children. It was exactly what I want my children to learn through sport activities, however, not many coaches are keen or capable to provide this kind of lesson.My son was lucky to have Blaine as a coach so that he could learn the high level skill of football and the thinking skills which can use to improve his everyday life.
