If my kid/s decide tennis is the sport for them, then great. But I doubt they'll be coached by me. I'll happily drive them around to training and tournaments and hit with them (if that's what they want to do), but I want my relationship to "dad" not "coach-dad"!

That said, I can only think of maybe 3 or 4 coaches I would trust to do a really high quality job (out of the maybe hundreds of coaches I know and have met!) - could be hard for the coach as well, knowing that dad is national coach (no pressure there then!)

Think I'd like my son/daughter to play rugby, but anything they enjoy will do as long as it's not football!

Don't be upset by the results you didn't get from the work you didn't do...
