Great gift for the football (soccer) coach

If you’re for something to buy for Christmas or you just need some coaching manuals there’s a lot out there.

I can personally recommend these three books by my colleague Michael Beale, Chelsea FC Youth Development Officer. I’ve read all his books – they’re a must-have for any budding coach who wants to advance their team.

Coaching defending to young players is difficult, kids are brought up to think that scoring is everything. Perfect Defending is a new coaching manual containing a series of fun drills that focus entirely on defending. The 67 drills and games in Perfect Defending cover the complete range of defending skills and techniques to help your defenders improve in every department.

64 Small-Sided Football Games is a compilation of games tried, tested and proven with both grassroots beginners and top youth players in professional academies. If you are serious about soccer coaching, you need this book in your kit bag.

Football Attack! contains 80 shooting drills that teach an array of skills, techniques and strategies to give your team an edge. They offer a solution for nearly all attacking problems. They mirror game situations, helping your players make the right decisions in matches. The drills train your players in a range of attacking positions. Every drill requires at least 1 shot at goal!
