In The Soccer Coach’s Toolkit, soccer coaches will find a wealth of coaching activities to help improve, stimulate, and provide enjoyment for players of all ages and abilities. Drawing on more than 20 years of soccer coaching and PE teaching experience, the author has provided only those activities he has successfully used time and again to engage and inspire his players.
Each activity is graded from beginner to advanced, and they foster fresh ideas to coach the main techniques and tactics of soccer. The more than 250 coaching activities are also accompanied by easy-to-understand descriptions and diagrams; the activities require only basic coaching equipment and can be adapted to challenge players of varying ability levels and needs. Coaches can use the activities to create one-off sessions for their players or use the activities to deliver regular sessions as part of a competitive training program.
