Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Each year, 6.1 million kids aged 6 to 17 play soccer for more than 25 days a year, and each of their teams needs a coach. In many cases, the coach is a parent or adult volunteer who may not have any previous coaching (or even soccer) experience. This book provides these volunteers with a crash course in soccer and coaching fundamentals. It provides an easy-to-understand overview of soccer rules, positions, and strategies as well as imaginative, enjoyable drills to help kids improve their kicking, dribbling, headers, and play-making.
And, there's lots of advice on typical coaching challenges, from handling substitutions and playing time to encouraging good sportsmanship and involving parents.
