Summary

Having covered the southern section of the Central Wales Line and its  branches in Swansea to Llandovery, this volume traces the line from  Llandovery to Craven Arms, where it met the North & West line, taking its traffic on to Shrewsbury. This takes in the remarkable feats of engineering  the Victorians undertook to forge this line across the Welsh hills, as we  take a nostalgic look at a railway lost; its country stations, signal boxes  and heavy goods and express trains largely replaced by simple request  stops and single-car diesel units.

    How To Coach Youth Football

    We hear the reports and see the video all too often: youth coaches and officials assaulted, fights breaking out at youth sporting events, and parents and coaches losing control over what should be a child’s game. It doesn’t have to be that way. What we don’t see are the thousands of youth football coaches who do it the right way: teaching the game and the ethos of the game to children who love to play. 
    Coaching youth football can be one of the most exciting, exhilarating, and rewarding experiences. It takes a tremendous amount of hard work, and an ability to communicate with other coaches, players, and parents, but there are few things to compare with watching young people compete and win, or learn lessons that will help them for a lifetime. Teaching the game of football goes far beyond the white lines, beyond the techniques of blocking and tackling. Along with learning the fundamentals of the game, young people learn teamwork, sportsmanship, responsible leadership, and the need to work hard and prepare to reach goals. 
    To avoid being one of those trapped in a nightmare, a youth coach must master the ability to relate to both players and parents. Above all, a coach must communicate. It is important that parents trust the coach. After all, parents are submitting their child to a game that is, by its very nature, physically brutal. Parents need to trust that the coach will have the best interests of the team, and their child, in mind at all times. When those interests collide, parents need to know why a coach makes certain decisions, and how that will affect their child. 
    Along with communicating with adults, youth football coaches must be experts in understanding and relating to children. Youth football players have very little concept of the actual fundamentals of the game.
