Figures I’m late with this post. My parents and players know all about ‘coach time’ because it seems I often can’t tell time. Oh well.

Hard to believe it’s been three years of blogging about youth soccer. My five readers have hung in there through thick and thin (I kid – we’re up to ten, but three of the originals have moved on). My first post was such a page turner!

In all seriousness, thanks to all of you who stop by on a regular basis to read what SoccerDad has to say. I’ve found blogging about youth soccer to be a great way to learn more about the game when researching posts, thinking things through as I write, as well as gaining insights from people around the world. I’ll admit it’s still funny to introduce myself to a coach before one of my travel team’s matches and they know who I am because they read OTP.

For those of you who frequent The SoccerSphere, kind of cool to know that ‘D’ started The DCenters a couple days before I started up OTP. And imagine – there was only one post on SoccerBlogs that day.
