Hosting a soccer coach for our family turned into a great cultural experience and lasting camaraderie. My two boys learned about another country, language and improved on their soccer skills at the same time. Out of personal choice, our guest coach became part of the family activity, meals, travel and certainly family jokes. It was fun opening up the world of America to our Brit, while we were trying to master an ear for his English and the catchy phrases that came with it. Our dog even become attached to the mate! A worthwhile experience for all.
