The Soccer Handbook for Players, Coaches and ParentsBook - 1996
Soccer, long the world's most played sport, is now undergoing a phenomenal popularity spurt among youth in North America. This book, the complete amateur soccer handbook for all ages, is indispensable for players, coaches, managers, league officials, referees and parents. Rules of the game, conditioning methods, basic and advanced skills, positional play, team formations, defensive techniques--and much more--are covered. The Laws of the Game, a publication of the F#65533;d#65533;ration Internationale de Football Associations publication is reprinted in full. The modern "short-ball" soccer concept is explained. Ball control skills are stressed for both developing and advanced players, along with self-discipline and a strong defense. With this handbook, championship teams and successful players can be built on these principles. In addition to technical skills, the important principles of leadership, self-control, sportsmanship, team play, fairness, and self-confidence are also promoted.
