Alex and his teammates love to play soccer. But why are there more referees at their games this season waving silly flags and stopping them right before they go in to score a goal? Offside? Ugh! explains the reason. A fully illustrated storybook, it is intended to help youth soccer players understand what it means to be in an offside position. Learning the game better through the eyes of Alex, Offside? Ugh! is a fun book that will offer the young soccer players more clarity. Also included are teaching concepts and vocabulary.
iPlaySoccer! Books are instructional stories. Each book is focused on advancing youth player development. These illustrated children’s stories teach foundational concepts and vocabulary in a fun way that allows children, parents and coaches to develop together in the beautiful game. The series is not intended to replace the instruction of a coach or the learning derived from actual play. Rather, the purpose of these books is to assist the player in mastering concepts as the game becomes more complex.
To that end, no matter the level of play, the coach is the teacher, the player is the student, and this series is merely the provider of fun educational tools designed to reinforce what should be learned on the training ground.
