The method is described in four books. Book 1: Build-up play. On the basis of a number of typical weaknesses in the build-up play of young soccer players, this book builds up to an extensive collection of drills. Book 2: Attacking play down the flank. Wing play gives soccer players lots of opportunities to make individual runs. This aspect of play is integrated in drills for the whole team. Book 3: Attacking play down the center. The themes dealt with in this book include the creation of goal-scoring opportunities, the final pass, individual runs, and finishing. Lots of drills. Book 4: Defending. The team defends with the aim of scoring (by exerting pressure), or attacking (in midfield), or building up a move (in its own half). This is developed in lots of practical drills.
Together, the four books form a complete soccer course. The method enables the coach to focus on the typical age-related aspects of the players' soccer development within the framework of a given playing system. A distinction is made between 10 to 14-year-olds and 14 to 18-year-olds. Players should be asked to do the things they are capable of doing at each stage of their physical and mental development. The books include a large number of drills, which coaches can use to take a structured approach to working onspecific soccer problems with their players. Dozens of current and former amateur and professional soccer players and youth and chief coaches from a variety of countries have been involved in the creation of these books.
