about

This coaching manual has been written for youth coaches developing players from 5 to 18 years.The manual will be found to be of great benefit not only to football coaches and players but also school teachers, parents and football administrators participating in the organising and educating of youth footballers. The 130 structured coaching sessions, 517 photographs, 15 static exercises for flexibility, 24 active exercises for flexibility, 22 introductory helpful tactical games, 191 technical-tactical coaching drills, 20 shooting exercises, 19 conditioned tactical games, 4 technical-tactical playing patterns, 7 set play combinations, 18 basic elements in gymnastics, 24 diagrams and 11 goalkeeping elements provides a comprehensive aid to football coaching. This coaching manual is divided into 6 levels, covering the ages of 5 to 18 years. Level 1 (5 to 8 years) presents the fun phase of development where the players are involved in gymnastics, helpful tactical fun games, shooting and playing small pitch football without the competitive technical tactical and physical pressures of being an instant success. Levels 2 and 3 ( 9 to 12 years) represent the start of the systematic controlled technical development period where technical and basic tactical elements are taught for the sole purpose of creating a solid basis for tactical development. Tactical development should not be taught at this level at the expense of technique. Levels 4, 5 and 6 (13 to 18 years) represent the tactical and physical development period.The successful transition to tactical elements is now made possible by a solid technical basis from the previous levels of development.At these levels we have an increasing demand on player performance in typical match situations.The questions that usually puzzle coaches are: at what age should controlled systematic coaching start? What technical-tactical elements and at what age should these elements be taught? What are the most common faults and corrections? and how should a youth coaching session be structured? The answers to these questions will be found in this classic coaching companion, providing coaches with the knowledge and practices in the 130 designed coaching sessions. If you’re coaching a squad of young people, whether it’s for your local community club, as a school teacher, or even with a professional team, this book will be invaluable.
