“This two book combo, “Modern Soccer Coaching – Technical” and “Modern Soccer Coaching – Tactical” are a perfect complimentary set of for my training needs.   These two books give me what I need without hunting through a dozen other books.  These are now required reading for my High School coaching staff and will be strongly recommended to be in the hands of all of our club coaches, from U9 to U18.

I found myself bookmarking pages for topics to cover with my own team or coaches that I instruct.    My High School team will be tested on Anson Dorrance’s Technical Skills Test, benefit from the PSV Eindhoven’s Shooting and Finishing, and several other topics.  Our club teams are relieved to find sensible instruction on Tournament Nutrition, the Seven Creative Goalscorer Drills, Speed Training for Younger Players, and so much more.    These books are a bible on team and individual improvement that you’ll refer to every week.” – Michael Harrington, Head Coach, North Scott High School and DOC North Scott Soccer Club

“I am really glad I bought the ‘combo’ version of Modern Soccer Coaching with both Tactical and Technical approaches.  All the session diagrams were clear, well explained and easy to understand whatever your level of coaching.  There are that many sessions to choose from various professional levels that I was spoilt for choice.  I found myself combining different sessions from the many teams within the books that allowed me to progress sessions with the various levels I work with.

When working within the professional environment it gave me lots of new ideas to think outside the box and when working with my grassroots players I showed them the session in the book was for example used by Real Madrid or Liverpool FC and the players imagined themselves as Ronaldo etc and the concentration, focus and fun from the session from the players was excellent, now they ask for it all the time. I highly recommend buying the combo version as they go hand in hand for any enthusiastic coach looking to develop themselves or their sessions.” – Rob Gateley UEFA B, FA Youth Modules Coach with many years experience working within both the professional and grassroots environment.
