Overview

This guide to coaching female athletes of all ages shows how to build a team and provides invaluable advice on the differences between coaching males and females. The authors include exercises that foster teamwork and develop essential skills. They also answer parents’ most common questions, such as how to tell if the coach is doing a good job and what to do if a child wants to quit. Filled with stories about the Olympic and World Cup championship teams, this useful handbook is infused throughout with DiCicco’s philosophy that at every level playing soccer (or any sport) is about “playing hard, playing fair, playing to win, and having fun.”

Praise

“An invaluable tool for coaches of all levels.” (Michelle Akers, Two-Time World Cup Champion, Olympic Gold Medalist, and FIFA Player of the Century)
