A one stop shop book!
Preparatory games 1v1 to 3v3 how to build up kids experience and confidence and apply successfully in small sided games. For new and old coaches there is an underlying philosophy of why the exercises work and how to build a session. Furthermore the psychology of coaching children is also detailed and explained in layman's terms.

I have spent over 15 years searching for best practice for my club and this book is in my top 3!

This is a great book for anyone coaching young players.

Gone are the static line drills and in their place a Model of age appropriate development,suggested small games, exercises and challenges for the very young to early teenage years designed to motivate, challenge and, as it says on the cover, Develop youth football players.

Tips and hints on not just what to coach but more importantly how. It's a top read and you will use it time and again.

Horst Wein's sample activities and suggested presentation methods are excellent for anyone working with youth footballers. He provides a justified, structured pathway from 5 year olds through to 18 year olds.

Really is a quality coaching aid!

Large variety of small sided game drills. Starting with basic 2vs1 through 2 vs 2, 3 vs 3, 7-a-side setups and finally 8 vs 8. Essential tool in my opinion for helping players to discover solutions in the game. Highly recommended

I have been involved in youth football coaching for a number of years and have completed a number of youth coaching courses. This is definitely one of the better books that I have read on the subject. Most books that I have just show drills, this book goes into the philosophy that the coach should be using as well. The emphasis is definitely away from competitive football at an early age and gradually building up skill levels. I would definitely recommend this book to any coach in those early years trying to figure out what they should be trying to do.

Good start for football coaches, handy for reference, good sessions for under 7-11.
I coach under 8's and I thought it was ideal.
