Coaching Girls' Soccer Successfully (Coaching Successfully) Cover

 

Synopses & Reviews

Publisher Comments:

Build a winning girls' soccer program, on the field and off. In Coaching Girls' Soccer Successfully, one of the nation's top high school coaches, Debra LaPrath, shares her expertise on all aspects of coaching. From establishing a coaching philosophy to making decisions during a game, this is the approach that has made her program a perennial powerhouse.

Coaching Girls' Soccer Successfully covers every aspect of the coach's role:

-Developing and perfecting skills

-Evaluating players and defining their roles

-Organizing productive practices

-Scouting and preparing for games

-Adding variety to training

-Developing leadership qualities

-Motivating the team

-Communicating on and off the field Featuring seasonal training plans, drills for developing fundamental to advanced skills, and advice for handling off-the-field challenges, Coaching Girls' Soccer Successfully is the most comprehensive resource available for novice and experienced coaches alike.

Synopsis:

The goals for both boys and girls soccer coaches are the same: develop skilled players, build team unity, and compete successfully. The path to reaching these goals, however, is vastly different, as boys and girls each provide physical, social, and psychological challenges unique to their gender. In Coaching Girls Soccer Successfully, Debra LaPrath uses her experience as a top girls coach for one of the most successful high school programs in the U.S. to provide tailored instruction not found in general soccer coaching manuals. Participation in girls soccer at the middle school, high school, and college levels has grown in the past decade, and female soccer players are on track to outnumber male players in the U.S. within the next few years. This book provides the perfect road map not only for player and team development but also for building and maintaining a successful program, managing your team, working with parents and school administrators, addressing the media, and more.
