Self-Directed Soccerby Charlie Inverso
Did you know that young players usually sharpen their most essential soccer skills between the ages of 6 and 14? Skill building at this age is essential for success and enjoyment of the game. But skills are built through repetition, which can bore or discourage young players.
To counter this, Coach Charlie Inverso offers a comprehensive training plan that mixes soccer fun and fundamentals in both individual and team practice routines. Combine this plan with coach and parent encouragement and supervision, especially at its beginning, and you’re on your way to helping players love the game by playing it better. The plan comes complete with downloadable training notes and coaching tips for each drill.
