Serious youth soccer coaches will be glad to finally have in their hands a thorough handbook of playing tactics specifically geared to the capabilities of youth players. Practical Soccer Tactics covers the fundamentals, such as when to pass the ball and when to retain it; these basics are taken for granted in books for older players. At the same time, the book includes the teaching of tactics that will stretch the young players; defensive and offensive build ups, transitioning, set pieces and so forth. These youngsters deserve exposure to the fine art, as well as the common art of soccer.
The author guides youth coaches through the variety of individual, group, and team tactical movements that can provide the winning edge in close matches. Time phased diagrams show clearly how each tact will take shape in the field of play. This book provides a match analysis tool to help coaches isolate and identify tactical problem areas, and practice drills to clear up tactical deficiencies in the shortest possible time. Coaches will find this approach particularly valuable for making their players themselves understand how each tactic works and when to use it. If you're serious about coaching, you'll want to buy this unique and helpful resource.
