Coaching 6, 7 and 8 Year Olds: ... and 5-Year Olds Too!
WHY WE HAVE CHANGED?The first edition of Coaching 6, 7 & 8 Year Olds was written in collaboration with Bobby Howe, at that time the Director of Coaching for the Washington State Youth Soccer Association, later Director of Coaching for the United States Soccer Federation. That was a long time ago (1988)...One year later we published Coaching 9, 10 & 11 Year Olds.Until recently, we hadn't changed a word in either of them. Why? Like the Energizer Bunny they just kept on going, and going and going...!Over 100,000 copies of each of the originals have been sold. As I'm sure you would understand, we were reluctant to change. Consequently, nothing did except the photographs of the two authors. The book didn't age, but the authors did!Since 1989, we have learned so much. So now it is time to change in order to update and improve the books, but at the same time, we will retain much of the core content that has worked so well.The 21st Century has given as another great technological opportunity - digital printing.We are now able to customize, modify and change the content of the manuals and the covers at will. We can update with every printing. And we can print just one book or 1000. So if, for instance, the Lake Washington Youth Soccer Association wants their version of Coaching 6, 7 & 8 Year Olds, we can do it. If the Franklin Pierce Club only needs 10 customized copies of 9, 10 & 11 Manual for the coaches of their small club, we can do that too!And if we come up with the newest game that children think is a blast, we can insert that in the very next print.Tony Waiters
