, and there will be other coaches who participate and create worlds of their own.
First steps into Coach Carroll's world take you through character creation. Then you are quickly off to explore and there is a lot to explore. I was actually happy with how large the map was. Every location has something that you can interact with, if you can locate it. Moving around the map can be bittersweet. You can click on the map and warp to any section on the map. You were supposed to be able to move from one area to the next as well, but sometimes you would be in buildings that did not have their exits well defined, and frustration would ensue.
Besides moving around the world playing mini-games and exploring, you will find areas that will give you factoids about basic football terminology. Coaching drills will help you understand and learn the game of football. Watching these coaching videos and playing the mini-games will earn tokens you can use to buy in-game items. Items can be used to decorate your personal spaces.
The social aspect of the game comes from the ability to speak to other players in the world. Safe chatting features help ensure that the interactions your children have with other players are as benign as possible. Just like any persistent world where players interact, there is always the possibility of people trying to circumvent the precautions, but I never saw any evidence of this. Players can also quickly report other players who abuse the system.
