I started coaching a few years ago and my wife bought this book for me as a father's day present. As I've advanced in my coaching from recreational to club soccer this book as constantly reminded me and guided me in coaching girls soccer. It's been a huge asset that I refer to often.
I coach U12 girls and each season I find myself picking up this book to either remind myself of the psychology of the girls, how to motivate them, how to organize my practice or just how to teach a specific skill. The book has a few suggestions for practice drills but it really is a coaching "manual" that'll guide you on your coaching journey.
John has done an awesome job and I wouldn't be coaching club if it wasn't for the guidance in this book. The foundational skills in this book has enable me to successfully coach my daughter's team well enough to advance them from recreational soccer to club. (We recently won our first tournament and I couldn't be prouder!) A few of my players have even advance into higher level club teams or made their junior high soccer teams
If you're coaching girls buy the book you will NOT be sorry.

Read this book and you will dramatically improve your coaching!
It's been a bible for me for two years and I've recommended it to all my fellow coaches (who all want to know my 'secrets'!!)
