5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent drills for coaches of level 1 or higher, 8 Mar 2012
This review is from: The Soccer Academy: 140 Overload Games and Finishing Practices (Paperback)
The drills in this book, like those in all of Michael Beale's books, are well laid out and easy to understand. I feel they are a bit complex for under-7 & 8 age groups, or for coaches that have not yet obtained their level 1 badge, but I recommend this book to any coach of level 1 or higher, who is coaching players of under-9 or older.

A great partner to this book which I also recommend is Michael Beale's "Soccer Academy: 100 Defending Practices and Small Sided Games"

Want to know a book to avoid ? - "101 Great Youth Soccer Drills: Skills and Drills for Better Fundamental Play" by Robert Koger. The drills are really confusing, even to more experienced coaches than myself that I've shown them to.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent book with modern training methods, 10 Dec 2010

This review is from: The Soccer Academy: 140 Overload Games and Finishing Practices (Paperback)
This is a superbly written and laid out book from a coach for whom I have the greatest of respect. Michael Beale has backed up his Defending book with a better book for Finishing and overloads. I use this book with all my sessions, from under 7s to under 15s and they work very very well.

This is a great book if you are looking for more modern drills, rather than stand in a line an shoot. The games give you a good balance and are designed to coach in a match situation style. The author knows his stuff and I would recommend this highly!

If you are looking for coaching books then Michael Beale and Wayne Harrison are 2 guys who can do no wrong.

There are good progressive games, and coaching points for each game. Kids will love it and they make your sessions more enjoyable
