9780071440929: The Baffled Parent's Guide to Coaching Girls' Soccer: A Baffled Parent's Guide (Baffled Parent's Guides)

Soccer is by far the most popular sport on the planet. And a record number of girls and women are playing soccer worldwide.

While Coaching Youth Soccer: A Baffled Parent's Guide has been very successful, the differences between coaching boys and coaching girls are distinct enough to warrant a separate book. With this huge growth in the number of girls playing soccer, there is a need for more and more parents to get involved and volunteer as youth coaches. Some coaches may have no experience, some may have coached boys only, while others may have coached girls for several years but are unsure how to proceed as their players develop.

As in other books in the series, Coaching Girls' Soccer is written for the unprepared parent who has unwittingly signed up to coach his or her 6- to 13-year-old child's team.

Following the successful formula of the other books in the series, Coaching Girls' Soccer will provide all of the fundamental and necessary information new coaches need to get a season underway and - most importantly - the necessary information to understand the nuances of coaching girls.

From the Back Cover:

"No matter what your level of experience, this is a must-read for every girls' youth soccer coach."—Simon Riddiough, Women's Soccer Coach, Hofstra University

Coach. You just volunteered to coach your daughter's soccer team, and you can't tell a drag back from a takeover or an offside from a goal kick.

Don't despair—Coaching Girls' Soccer is here to help. From your first team meeting to the season-ending pizza party, Coaching Girls' Soccer will get you started and keep you going. In addition to learning how to teach the fundamental skills of passing, dribbling, heading, and shooting, you'll learn how to encourage competition and athleticism in girls, how to build their confidence and self-esteem, and how to deal with performance changes as girls mature. You'll even develop the coaching style that works best for you and your players. Before you know it, you'll be coaching players who are moving, motivated, and most of all, having fun.

  • Survive your first practice and first game
  • Promote good habits, concentration, and teamwork
  • Learn what's unique about coaching girls from 4 to 14!
  • Coach goalkeepers using the chapter on goalkeeping and special keeper drills
  • Make practices safe, fun, and rewarding
  • Improve your players and your team
