A resource for soccer coaches who are looking to plan an active, interesting and fun practice for children. Ron Quinn is a NCAA Division 1 coach and a member of the United States Soccer Federation National Teaching Staff, and Tom Fleck is a senior member of the United States Soccer National Coach Staff. Here they arm coaches with advice on creating the right blend of drills, and then offer the keys to holding the attention of six- to 12-year-old players. The volume offers 125 simple games that teach passing, movement, dribbling and shooting. There is a troubleshooting chart that shows how to isolate specific problem areas and choose drills to correct them. A comprehensive index allows coaches to access drills to improve specific areas (dribbling, fitness, or passing, for example) or find drills that will best match a player's age.
