Football is changing. Players are quicker, stronger and more creative. Teams work harder, cover more distance and face more challenges than ever before.

As the game gets quicker, the role of the coach can never be underestimated. Coaches are essential for teaching and developing players at every level of football. To give their players the best advantage, coaches must be aware of the latest techniques and philosophies involved in coaching the game.

101 Youth Soccer Drills: Ages 12-16 Book – Third Edition

Book Summary: The follow-up to the age 7-11 manual, this excellent book is suitable for both new and experienced coaches. Designed specifically for players aged 12 to 16, this manual contains a wide range of progressive practice drills to help young players develop. Fun, educational and challenging, all drills are illustrated and cover the essential technical skills including: • Warming up • Dribbling and running with the ball • Passing • Shooting • Heading • Crossing • Goalkeeping • Warming down. As well as easy-to-use instructions, each drill contains information on the equipment needed, the space required and how to organise the players. Author: Malcolm Cook has been a soccer coach for 30 years and he has spent much of his coaching career with schoolboys and young professional players (though, of course, the recent upsurge of interest in Women’s Football means this is equally useful for young girls and women wishing to develop their skills.) For three years, Cook was the Technical Director (Youth) at Liverpool FC and was responsible for revolutionising the club’s youth scheme at a time when many top-class players, including Robbie Fowler, Steve McManaman and Dominic Matteo, were on the youth books.
