Not being a soccer guy, I was encouraged to check out this book. It does a great job of showing a new soccer coach the ropes by providing relevant drills for all positions, breaking down footwork so that one can better explain it to young learners, and providing organization for practice and game play. I would highly recommend this to any parent or new coach to the game.

The truth is, I returned this book after I bought it. So why do I still give it 3 stars???

As you can see from my other reviews, I spend a good deal of money on soccer coaching books. Perhaps as a result, I was already familiar with pretty much all the information contained in the book. This is not to say that the books is bad. The information contained in the book is actually very good. It's just that I am personally at a more advanced level.

I highly recommend this book to new coaches and coaches of teams U10 or lower (or perhaps even recreational U12 teams). It does a great job of compiling loads of useful information on many topics and a handful of good practice games in one place. Big print and simple graphics make it easily readable. However, if you already have a coaching foundation and are looking for "new" information, this is probably not the book for you.

Survival Guide for Coaching Youth Soccer is an excellent book for any new coach at all levels of play. This book takes you step by step through the essential technical concepts associated with the basic youth players as well as tactical components of some higher levels of play. Every new coach will benefit from this book. Go Eagles!!!

This is a great guide for parents who didn't take a step backwards when everyone was asked who would volunteer to coach the youth soccer team! I worked with youth and high school soccer teams for over 25 years and bought this guide for my daughter in law to help with her U-8 team in another state. It contains useful info in an easy to understand format and has excellent beginning drills for youth soccer players.

This was a really good book. Well written and full or good practical detail. I have coached soccer for about 5 years and the book highlighted all the important things that I have been told to do as a coach. It also gave me some really good tips on how to keep the kids engaged and excited about practice and the game.

The only thing that may be missing is some more info on game strategy. Not a big deal because at the level of 5 to 10 year olds strategy is basic and building individual skills is much more critical.

Get this book - if you are a beginner to intermediate coach. If you are just looking for drills there are other books that are a bit better. For drills I got "Great Soccer Drills : The Baffled Parent's Guide (Paperback)" which I like quite a bit too because it is well organized.
