Coaching what I have learned.

         I have coached girls rec soccer for about 3 years. When I started I was clueless. I started preparing about 3 months before the season. I had never played soccer and knew very little about the game. I immersed myself in book after book and was searching online daily. I found drills and ways to prepare for practices and games. I found a plethora of information helping me to get ready to coach pre-teen girls. That is hard on its own.

  1. Hey Bob, that’s exactly what I’m trying to do. What is one book you recommend I read related to soccer coaching?
    I’ve summarized / synthesized coaching points from 4 books on my blog (I’ll post a link here only if you’re ok with it). There’s a lot out there, so I’m looking for help in selecting books that are useful and practical, not theoretical. Any advice?

    1. Youth Soccer Coaching , Idiots guide to coaching pre teen girls, those are the only 2 I remember off the top of my head. Sorry that is not more helpful. As I said I have packed my notes and drills away to study and get ready for coaching basketball. The books were all older from my local library. I believe one was from the 70’s. They all served a purpose. Wish I was a little more help, I am immersed in preparing for basketball. I spent several hours reading today as well as another hour printing offense, defense, drills and plays. Let me know if I can help in any other way. Thank you.
