Developing the Complete Tactical Player – Printed
Your players might have the technique, but do they have game intelligence? Discover how to fill the gap in youth training and improve the tactical knowledge and decision making of your players.
Finally, a book focused on the missing link in youth training! Developing the Complete Tactical Player: Coaching Soccer with Game Intelligence is a unique book that shows you how to train players to develop tactical knowledge, faster decision making and smarter use of the ball. This is an aspect sorely missed in most training programs, but can make all the difference in taking your players to an elite level.
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 too 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.
From the book you will gain a deeper understanding on the importance of tactical knowledge and decision making, and how it impacts the performance of your team. The book also provides over 50 excellent activities for training different positions and areas of your team in game intelligence.
Whether you coach youth teams, recreational sides or players at the highest level, this book is an essential addition to your coaching library for developing intelligence in your players and filling the gap in what is missing from traditional training.
