Soccer Books

Sam Snow

Books on soccer usually have adult fans in mind or adult coaches. There are only a few books on our sport that have children as the reader audience in mind. Playing the game is the most important piece in a young soccer player’s journey to learn the game. Next comes being coached well and given support by the player’s family and friends as he or she goes through the ups and downs in a soccer career. The final piece is watching the game played by superior players and reading about the game. The IPlay Soccer Series for parents, kids and coaches offers books for kids to better understand the beautiful game  I recommend the books for young players to read for their enjoyment and the soccer lessons to be learned. Please read this blog entry to learn more about this new and wonderful resource for all of the young players you know.
