Review

""""As Chairman of the Ethics Committee with the NSCAA/ISAA, I found Coach Hargreaves' approach to coaching refreshing. He devoted a significant amount of space in developing his personal philosophy and a personal code of ethics. This is something that all soccer coaches should read and heed. . . . A quality piece of work. . . ."""Joseph W. Bean, Soccer Coach, Wheaton College """Skills and Strategies for Coaching Soccer is the most comprehensive book on soccer that I have read. It is complete, advising the coach or potential coach on everything from philosophy to set plays. . . . a very useful coaching tool."""John A. Reeves, Professor and Director of the Division of Physical Education and Athletics, State University of New York at Stony Brook "

Format: Paperback
I have a library of many football coaching books, but this is the one book I refer to the most. Not only does it give good clear descriptions of exercises, but it covers everything from basic techniques right through to coaching attacking & defending and positional play.
Coaches that are new to the game and have no basic training will also find some great help in dealing with parents, setting up coaching sessions, handling difficult players and also ethical values.
I would advise any budding coach to get some formal training through their football association, but if that is not possible then this book is definitely the next best thing and covers many topics that you'll find on coaching courses.

I have coached youth rec. soccer for 4 years and own several books on this subject . Alan Hargreaves Skills and Stategies for Coaching Soccer is by far the best book I have , and use the most .It is very clear and concise and unlike several books I've purchased , most all the info and drills are useable .I would not recommend this book for a first time coach . But for a coach that wants to bring their soccer knowlege to the next level . Great book !

Format: Paperback
This is a decently written book for beginner to intermediate youth soccer coaching. It probably
would be found somewhat lacking in details for advanced coaches. The author was a former
defensive player in England, and this is reflected in the structured nature of the coaching style
that he advocates, as well as in the solid chapter on defensive play. He has a lot of good advice
on how to handle players and parents as well. Offensive schemes described in the book are
fairly conventional, which is probably where this book could be improved the most.

Hargreaves gives us coaches insight we can all use. As a post college player I began coaching U-9 two years ago. The book didn't tell me much that I didn't already know, it just told me how to tell my players how to do the things I did know. Lots of fun drills, coaching philosophy and insight into different player's mindsets. Every coach should have it in his/her library.
