The Youth Coaching Series Raffaele Tomarchio When I started coaching over 20 years ago, the available soccer information for a new, or experienced youth coach, was somehow limited to the material and information received from the local Soccer Association, at the various coaching courses. For those coaches that wanted more, you could buy some books, or order some videotapes on general soccer topics, all very interesting, but nothing in comparison to what coaches are able to access today. When it comes to get soccer information for youth coaches, the internet has definitely become a game changer. Now, it is all at our finger tips: there are specialized soccer websites, YouTube videos, e-books, blogs, online sessions, and much more. The digital information has definitely contributed to the development of soccer coaches, especially for those who are highly motivated, thirsty for knowledge and self-improvement, and willing to spend hours upon hours sifting through the available online information. On the other hand, this ease of access has created a risky side effect known as information overload. It’s great that coaches have drills that they can download, videos the can watch, and blogs they can read. However, it also requires a great deal of time investment to filter the information, and determine what is appropriate and what is not. THE YOUTH COACHING SERIES E-BOOKS titled TEACH YOUTH PLAYERS are designed to provide youth coaches with training solutions that focus on specific development topics that are appropriate for the age group they coach. Each E-Book gives the coach a detailed overview on a topic, highlighting the technical, tactical, physical and physiological requirements needed to achieve optimal performance. It provides the coach with detailed exercises designed to address the various components of training. Each exercises is explained, objectives outlined with coaching priorities, and technical key factors. This E-book is only a starting point. It give coaches - new or even experienced ones-a foundation to build on, knowledge and understanding of the topic covered, and a block of progressive plans and exercises, that can be used to develop aspects of their team and player development. The first E-book of these series is entitled: Raffaele Tomarchio TEACH YOUTH PLAYERS: HOW TO BUILD PLAY FROM THE BACK 3
