NEW! - "DEVELOPING THE COMPLETE TACTICAL PLAYER: Coaching Soccer with Game Intelligence in Mind"

What's missing in the US game?
There is a big problem in US soccer. Despite having more
people actively playing soccer than any other country we still lag behind many
other nations in the quality of the players we produce. The reason? There is
much focus on skills development, excessive tournament play and a tendency to
over coach. Whilst in theory this approach sounds sensible, it has led to the
creation of highly drilled but robotic players that lack the tactical knowledge
and decision making of other nations. In other words, too many players lack the
game intelligence they need to reach an elite level.
"Developing the Complete Tactical Player: Coaching Soccer with Game Intelligence" provides the perfect balance between theory and practice. Its two authors* explain in exhaustive detail everything you need to know about the importance of game intelligence and how to develop it in your players.
