Overview

With 14 million children playing organized soccer in the U.S., it’s likely that your child will play at some point—and you may be the coach! While the rules of soccer are simple (though they are explained here), the techniques for coaching young children are not. Robert Koger, who has coached youth soccer for over 25 years, understands what it takes to work with 4- to 8-year-olds, and lays it all out here. He covers everything from the rules and the layout of the field tothe logistics of finding playing space, setting up practices, and even handling pesky parents. Koger also recognizes that 4- to 6-year-old players have different needs from 6- to 8-year-old players, and he provides extensive drill ideas for coaches of both age groups. Don’t coach your team without this book!
