Expert advice to make youth soccer more fun for players, parents and coaches.

Robert Koger coached youth soccer for over twenty-five years. For the thousands of new coaches taking over teams every year, the advice he offers will make their lives easier and their teams better. Koger covers everything a new coach needs to know: the rules of the game, the layout of the field, the logistics of finding playing space, setting up practices, and even handling pesky problem parents.

If you want to understand the offsides rule, clarify what goalkeepers can and can’t do inside the penalty box, need advice on conditioning and training players, you’ll find it here. Designed specifically to help coaches work with young players ages four through eight, Koger’s goal is to make the game fun for kids, parents, and coaches. With fourteen million American children playing in organized leagues, and more new coaches needed every year, this book is essential and helpful reading for anyone who chooses to take up the whistle and manage a team.
