Very basic - a book for managers, not coaches,
Verified Purchase(What is this?)
This review is from: Coaching Junior Football Teams For Dummies (Paperback)
This book is aimed at someone who is about to take over a kids' football/soccer team, who (1) has never played or seen football (2) has never been around children or the parents of children (3) is a newcomer to Planet Earth.
Ok, it is not that bad, and clearly a lot of thought has gone into it. There is some useful guidance. It is not unhelpful, by any means. My quibble with the book is that it is really a book for managers rather than for coaches. There are few drills, and the focus of the book is not on coaching at all. It is not a book that will help you to plan a season of training sessions. It tells you little about how you can try to improve and develop players. If I had browsed through this in a shop, I doubt I would have bought it.
