Players 1st Book

Welcome to Players First Soccer

Players 1st outlines a process for coaches of soccer players age 7 to 14 that pursues three basic objectives:

1. Better kids
2. Who will play for a lifetime
3. At the highest level their interests and efforts will allow

The model takes a longer-term view, promoting a “Go-for-It” mentality and placing the individual development of “players for tomorrow” ahead of the often safe, comfortable and conventional game-day focus on teams “built for today.” While written as a comprehensive guide for the parent-coach (frequently in charge because “otherwise these kids won’t have a team”), the book is filled with innovative ideas, exercises and activities which kids just love and which will refresh and expand the coaching skills of those with far greater experience.
