Advanced Soccer Drills
- develop the ability and confidence to handle the ball under pressure,
The drills are organized according to specific objectives, with a drill finder to help you select the drills that work on the areas you want to improve. Each drill is presented in a two-page format that includes instructions about the drill's organization and procedure, key points for learning it, a large, clear diagram, and suggested variations for adjusting the difficulty level of the drill. Coaches will especially appreciate the chapter on using drills to construct practice sessions, as well as the 1-vs.-1 player-evaluation model, which you can use as a tool for selecting team members or as a practice exercise.
The drills in this book are more challenging and more fun than the basics and are particularly valuable for select youth league, high school, and college-level players. Players under the age of 12 who have a solid grasp of the fundamentals will also benefit from some of these drills.
Better practice means better performance. Advanced Soccer Drillsis the perfect tool for developing complete players with high-level skills and soccer savvy.

I am a former player who played in college. I have coached high school girls for 10 years. I have ordered a lot of soccer books online. Most books I am pretty disappointed with. This is BY FAR the best book that I have found. A lot of drills I use right from the book. Others drills I slightly tweak and they are great! I would recommend this to any coach.
