If you are reading this guide because you are new to soccer, you are not alone. You have just joined not thousands, but millions of other parents across North America whose children have taken up soccer.
Why have this guide? Because many parents in North America have never had any contact with soccer. This guide explains many of the things that coaches and players take for granted. Unlike adults in other sports, soccer parents are learning the game from their kids. This of course is intolerable, since we are older and will always know more than they do. This book is your secret source of wisdom.
Soccer is the fastest growing sport in North America. The growth of soccer is primarily coming from young children. So with these kids come soccer parents like you, many of whom have no experience with the game. This book is not a manual or textbook for coaching or making star players. It’s meant to help you and your child get the most out of the world’s greatest game.
Who knows, you might start playing yourself!
