Soccer Alive: The Game is the Best Teacher – Endorsed by the NSCAA – is a quick game that requires the player to be quick not only in movement but also in decision-making. Everyday soccer training focuses on improving technical and tactical abilities and almost completely neglects to practice the ability to read the game and make the right decision quickly. However, the use of all technical and tactical abilities in the game is of little use unless connected to the ability to make decisions. Build a strong and successful soccer team by using a completely new training philosophy that teaches players to think on the field. It presents the new approach of using game situations to improve the particular movements and behaviors, which are used most frequently in these situations. The book is geared toward coaches and parents of recreational level through high school level players and players at the high school level and above.
