ABOUT SOCCER COACHING
Soccer coaching and practice plans are probably the most complex coaching assignment in all of sports. Soccer coaching involves an understanding of soccer specific skills, soccer specific fitness training, and soccer specific nutrition.
But that's not all. In coaching soccer, a coach also needs psychological skills to deal with all aspects of individual and team mental preparations. Soccer coaching involves a tremendous amount of data analysis and problem solving during games and practices. Soccer coaching requires visionary, strategic and tactical thinking skills.
And all of the above requirements change with age groups and gender being coached. It is impossible for a novice or experienced soccer coach to develop all the knowledge and skills from scratch. That is why there are soccer coaching schools and seminars.
Not all aspiring or established soccer coaches can afford time or money for that training. Our site, soccerpracticebooks.com has been developed to provide you with key resources to become a better soccer coach!
The idea for Print & Go Practices came from the recognition that something was missing for soccer coaches amongst all the training materials and resources available.
Most soccer coaching resources have lots of soccer practice drills but do not to put them into an effective and entertaining practice plan. We've done that for you and ensured that our soccer practices work by testing them with real teams.
What about the next soccer practice? What about a season plan? What about the team need and focus? Fitness training: yes or no? During soccer practice or separate sessions? Scrimmages? Speed and mental training? Where are the soccer specific drills for that? How about flexibility and stretching exercises? Any difference between age groups?
You will find these questions answered comprehensively only in our soccer practice plans.
We have a tool to develop hundreds of additional soccer practice plans. You decide on a focus for the season and a theme for the practice and combine the drills to make it happen. If you want to run a practice involving more passing, use exercises with passing themes. Or sequence warm-up-technical-technical-tactical-scrimmage.
The printed material is supplemented by pictures of soccer specific stretches and soccer moves and by the soccer tips published
