Are you looking to take your kids’ soccer game (under 15 years) to the next level?

Note: The author has coached teams to finals of national competitions – his teams have played at St George’s Park, the home of English soccer, twice. He was invited to be a part of the expert panel when the Government re-wrote the curriculum for sport in school in 2010. He has coached across wide ages, but his main experience is ages 8-13, and within that 9-11. All of the drills are ones he has used; his teams were not selective, just normal school sides. All these drills can be adapted by a good coach for any age.

Soccer is the most popular team sport in the world. It is perfect for kids to play. It is safe, simple and the skills required can be easily acquired. Becoming an expert player requires high levels of dedication, natural athleticism and innate skills. Any girl or boy can take to the sport and find enjoyment at their own level.

It is for this reason that the game is escalating to such a rapid extent in the US. And it is why the need for coaches and players is growing continuously and rapidly. After all, who would not turn down the chance for their kids to keep physically fit, to allow their natural competitiveness to be channelled in an organized way, to be kept busy in a manner that is both productive and worthwhile? In addition to this, soccer develops dexterity, problem solving, collaboration, friendship, respect, self-discipline, team spirit and sportsmanship. All of which are life skills that are best acquired young.

But there is so much to learn for youngsters who wish to become soccer players at a good club level. Shooting, defending, pressing, passing, controlling the ball, the laws of the game (even professionals struggle at times with the offside law as do, it sometimes seems, the referees themselves). And more important than all of these, children must learn about the spirit of soccer. Fair play and the sportsmanship mentioned above. This is especially so for today’s youngsters facing all the pressures of growing up in a challenging world driven by the twin pressures of consumerism and social media.

Here’s What’s Included In This Book:


  • The 7 different kinds of skills that kids need to learn in soccer
  • How Ball Control Skills escalate the level of your kids soccer game

  1. George Pain

    This is a great book for kids u-15 who are looking to improve their game; and also for youth coaches.
    I learnt a lot from this book.

  2. Alex Frank

    I recently started as a youth coach and this gave me an idea on what to work on.
    It’s a good start to learning about soccer, covering all the basics. For coaches, kids and parents. Most skills are covered.
    The author cleverly combines effective drills for training each skill as modern-day football isn’t all about the hard work, tricks are the key factor to become a modern-day soccer player but great players master all the basics emphasized in this book.

  3. Chris Brown

    In my opinion, This is must-have literature for new coaches a perfect soccer coaching guide for those who are supposed to coach U-15.
    Everything is nicely described with the help of images.
    It helped me out to figure out the positioning of my players while planning the strategy for each scenario.

  4. Michael

    A perfect kids coaching book in every aspect.
    But the chapter of mental exercise is I like the most because so many talented players just fail because they can’t handle the pressure of the match.
    A great book.

  5. Michael

    As a father, I think it’s a must-read book for the parents of kids who love to play soccer.
    As soccer can be a career or a profession for your child.
    As I want to be a supportive dad so I will do anything to support my kids.
    After reading this book I can talk to my son about his practice sessions.
    Great job by the author I would recommend this book for parents.

  6. David

    An excellent book for U15 coaches.
    Every bit of the book is worth reading.
    Can’t name the best chapter because the book will be incomplete even if one word is missing from the book.
