Summary

Summary

Without proper all-round skills, no soccer player can reach his or her potential, and without skilled players, no team can play on championship level. Players and coaches need more than just a routine collection of offensive drills to be successful. In addition to goal scoring, players need instruction in ball or field control, perhaps the most important skill that needs to be mastered. This handbook is designed to help the soccer coach, amateur or expert, to instruct players in, first, the most elementary skills, and then building up to the drills for sophisticated ""plays"" common in higher levels of game play. This book illustrates the exact method for teaching each individual skill, showing correct body positions and the various progressive stages of each drill.
