The Official American Youth Soccer Organization Handbook by John Ouelette, Vincent Fortanasce

The first book endorsed by AYSO — the organization that soccer moms and dads trust most — that presents all the basics of youth soccer
If you are a soccer parent, coach, or referee, or just a youth soccer enthusiast, The Official American Youth Soccer Organization Handbook is for you. Dr. Vincent Fortanasce, Lawrence Robinson, and John Ouellette, the National AYSO coach, have written the book that will help everyone to better understand the rules, regulations, and skills that are essential to the game and a rewarding soccer experience for the children who play. In a straightforward, easy-to-follow style, The Official AYSO Handbook covers:

  • the five philosophies of AYSO: everyone plays, balanced teams, open registration, positive coaching, and good sportsmanship
  • the responsibilities of each position
  • the complete rules of youth soccer, including offside, throw-ins, and penalty kicks
  • skills such as ball control, goalkeeping, heading, and shooting
  • short-sided soccer rules for children between the ages of six and twelve
  • information for the prevention and treatment of the most common soccer injuries

AYSO is the best and most trusted youth soccer authority. And now, Fortanasce, Robinson, and Ouellette have collected AYSO's expertise in this indispensable book — a must-have for anyone who embraces the important role that youth soccer can play in a child's life.

If you have had the pleasure of being taught by John Ouelette, this book certainly reinforces the program. If you have not had the pleasure, this is the next best thing to being there. A great expaination to a great program.
