If you coach soccer (football), anywhere in the world, Soccer Coaching Blog is for you.
Here at Better Soccer Coaching we’re committed to providing excellent quality training plans, coaching manuals and DVDs that are truly relevant and helpful to coaches.
Through this blog, we’ll listen to what you have to say about your coaching issues, we’ll join in the debate, and we’ll come up with solutions.
This is a blog for everyone involved in soccer coaching, and all the issues you face have a place here. Our writers will be contributing something new each week, and I’d like to extend an open invitation for you to join in with your comments.
Whether it’s individual or team skills, coach development, refereeing, player behaviour, discipline, the role of parents, team management and selection, talent spotting or fitness, Soccer Coaching Blog aims to cover it all.
Your feedback and contributions are important and valuable for coaches all over the world, as this blog allows knowledge to be shared among coaches in scores of countries.
I’d like to introduce the team of soccer coaching bloggers who will be contributing to these pages over the coming months.

He is an accomplished writer on soccer coaching,having published many titles including two for Better Soccer Coaching – with more to come.

Me, Andrew Griffiths

I have two young sons who play regularly.
