Soccer Coaching and the Web: A Guide to Player Development


The basis of player development has always been face to face interaction between the coach and the player, but our analysis of feedback from over 500 practicing Soccer Coaches at all levels in Europe, Asia and North America, clearly shows that this is not the only way coaches are now engaging with players.

In this first ever Guide for Soccer Coaches on how to use the web to support the development of their players, we explore WHICH Web Tools coaches use, WHY and HOW they use them

The top 5 reasons given by these coaches as to why they use the web to support the development of their players are as follows:

  1. The Player is encouraged to take more OWNERSHIP of their own development
  2. It’s an EXTENSION of the coaching session for the players
  3. An opportunity to REINFORCE MESSAGES when they are away from the coach
  4. It’s an opportunity to provide ADDED VALUE to the coaching they receive from our club and this DIFFERENTIATES us from other clubs
  5. It maximizes the CONTACT TIME the coach has with the players

The book is therefore grounded in – PRACTICAL APPLICATION and includes over 100 examples quoted by coaches at all levels, recommendations for 200 FREE TOOLS and references to over 250 FREE websites
