Help, I am a soccer coach!
What do you do when you more or less voluntarily undertake coaching a young soccer team between the ages of 5 and 12 – and have no idea what to do? The former soccer player and elite coach Anders Jacobsen found himself in that exact situation a few years ago. In this book he shares all his tricks and tips.
In a simple and educational way he writes about training tips, skill development, team selection, choice of equipment, parental rules and everything else a children’s soccer coach can come across. Should everyone get equal playtime, or should the best get more? These discussions repeat themselves with each new generation and is something that many soccer parents are concerned about.
Anders Jacobsen shares from his own experiences in the training field, at matches and tournaments, and also share his thoughts about sport, team play and children’s development. The goal is to always take care of both the children and soccer.
