Mighty Mites by Chris Castell

Might Mites uses what we know about children and infuses this with soccer. Through stories, we engage young players in soccer. This approach helps coaches accomplish more whilst keeping every player engaged as they all have fun. The book has all you would ever need to run a compete season for a parent volunteer as well as club officials.
