I received this book yesterday, I have read/studied most of the drills and they look very good. I'm currently a coach of a soon-to-be under 13's team and the drills will come in very handy for their training sessions. Of course the usual suspects of drills are in there but there's also a lot of good new drills, which I will be going over with them. The book concentrates on all aspects of developing youngsters abilities and rather than boring drills the kids will enjoy the drills in this book. There are also a few pages on goalkeeper training, which I will defiantly being using. Whether your using the book for new ideas or to recap on the basics I highly recommended this book.

Uses a very traditional and out dated form of coaching that is based on results as well as development (he talks a lot about formations, positioning and clearing the ball from certain areas of the pitch as quick as possible). At the younger ages it should be only about development. Also many of the exercises are very linear and repetitive which is has no representation to the variety and richness of the real game. However on a positive note there are a few good dribbling games for ages below 8. I would not recommend this book.

This will not last too long on your shelf. It is very basic which is fine if you know absolutely nothing about training drills. However, if you want a book that covers the basics and then moves on this isn't the book for you. Diagrams are easy to understand and instructions are clear. Very basic info and drills!

What a great guide this is. I am a parent new to football coaching and mini soccer. I found this book an invaluable insight into drills and exercises that will help develop kids footballing skills. One of the problems is that boys and girls get bored quickly doing the same routines over and over again but this book has lots of new ideas to keep the kids interested and involved. I bought the Grassroots Football - Mini Soccer 6-10 years [DVD] [2009] first, which was a great introduction to mini soccer for parents wanting to get involved, but this book covers drills and exercises and advice on general fitness in more detail.

This is a decent coaching book for the price. A lot of the drills will already be familiar to you but its good to see them written down and clearly illustrated. A great buy for anyone just starting out in coaching a young football team. Probably suited to FA Level 1 coaches.
