The Intelligent Soccer Coach : Player-Centered Sessions to Develop Confident, Creative Players
With this book, coaches are given the necessary knowledge to plan and deliver player-centred practices that are both relevant and realistic to the game.
These practices will challenge players as well as encourage them to be creative, independent decisionmakers. A range of different practices are provided, which can be used as given or easily adapted to meet players' needs.
These practices can be used to develop a range of playing skills and can even be combined to create sessions for a complete training curriculum for the season.
Finally, with this book, coaches will gain a better understanding of the crucial role that they play in the players' long-term development, helping them to appreciate the skills they already have while identifying other areas in which to improve. The Intelligent Soccer Coach is a book that coaches will return to time and again for inspiration and ideas that will ensure both the coach and the players continue to develop.
