Summary

Summary

Filled with full-color action photos and instructive diagrams, Junior Soccer is designed specifically as a guide to help instructors teach the game to boys and girls. From goal-keeping practices to team tactics, the authors cover every aspect of the game, emphasizing teaching methods that work best for kids, ages 6 through 16. They focus on proper technique, beginning with warm-up routines, then showing and discussing positional practices and developing individual skills. Consecutive action photos show correct kicking techniques, including driving, chipping, volleying, juggling, and many other maneuvers. The authors also give advice on suitable equipment, offer tips on keeping junior players interested and motivated, and pass on suggestions to help kids develop coordination, speed, agility, and ball control. Parents, physical education teachers, and kids themselves will be fascinated by the instruction, advice, and handsome illustrations that fill this book.
