NOTE FROM AUTHOR COLLEEN CAREY
I remember starting out as a youth coach and thinking what a major difference I was going to make in these young players’ lives. I was going to turn them into world-class soccer players! Then reality set in and the amount of time it took to put one practice plan together was overwhelming. I had a full time job and after a few practices, I stopped putting plans together. I just showed up hoping we would have a productive session. Needless to say, I failed my team and our season was tough. Having learned that a plan is essential to being a successful coach, I spent the next year putting together practice plans. This guide is a result of putting together practice plans for the last 18 years.
This guide is intended to make your coaching job a lot easier. If you’re new to coaching, you can use this guide as your roadmap. If you’ve coached before, this guide will remove a lot of the work associated with mapping out each practice. You can supplement the practice plans with your own concepts that have worked for you in the past.
With your use of this guide, your players will be learning, having fun and picking up on the key soccer skill and tactics at the right time. As a coach, you’ll look experienced, knowledgeable and well prepared. Plus, with some of the heavy lifting removed from your schedule, you’ll have more time to appreciate the season. Enjoy!
Here’s a look at a couple sample pages from the book. For the soccer activities – note the diagrams, explanations and coaching points.

YOUTH SOCCER COACHES,
If you’ve ever coached kids in any sport, you understand how much individual and team praise can raise spirits and make a big impact on players. Now, here’s your opportunity to recognize your players with professional designed certificates. These classy certificates will be a lasting reminder to your players of the season and of you. Make sure the last impression you leave with your players is a great one.
These certificates are all tailored to soccer. You can further customize the certificates by adding your team name, players’ names, and your own words of praise. You’ll look polished and well-prepared with this award certificate maker!
Includes 150 award certificates packaged in a downloadable PDF file that works on PCs and Macs. 75 designs for color printers and the same 75 designs for black ink printers for a total of 150 designs. You can add what you need — by typing on your word processing application, e.g. Microsoft Word, or by handwriting — to customize the certificate for your team and your players.
Good for both girls and boys teams of all ages. Print as many as you like. Designs are set to work on standard 8.5” x 11” paper.
• Make your players smile! Kids, and adults for that matter, love to hear words of praise. Here’s a cool way to give your players, assistant coaches and team parents a feel-good boost. Present the certificates and heap on the praise. Your players may never forget it.
• Quick and easy to do. In no time, you’ll have professionally designed certificates and coaching forms that look fantastic.

• Choices. Lots of designs to choose from — 75 different designs in all. There’s something for everyone.
• Design that stands out from the crowd. These professionally designed certificates look great on refrigerators, bulletin boards and bedroom walls.
In addition to recognizing players, there’s certificates for coaches, team parents, scorekeeper and a generic “thank-you” award that you can customize for any party that helped the team during the course of the season.
The primary usage occasion for the certificate maker for many will be the season ending party, but with so many options to choose from, you might find other opportunities to recognize your players and supporters. Consider awarding all of the players the same certificate, customized in different ways, after specific tournaments, e.g. award every player the “All Universe” certificate after a great tourney. Or, perhaps, at the mid-season point, you have a mini-ceremony recognizing key team contributions, e.g. and award everything from “Best Dressed,” to “Love of the Game” award.
You’ll find the right award for every player on your team with so many options.
In addition to the soccer award certificate maker, you’ll receive templates for various soccer forms including a “Treat Sheet,” “Player Expectations,” “Parent Expectations,” and “Soccer Homework.” A “Shot Tracker” form allows you to record where shots are taken, and made, during the course of a game. Share the results with your players and make your teaching points.
As with the certificate maker, you can customize each sheet with your own comments. Treat the coach handout forms like letterhead and print out or write your specific comments to make the forms work for your team.
You’ll likely find uses for the forms from the very start of the season and throughout the year.
The award certificate maker and coaching forms are simple to use. After you make a purchase, you’ll immediately receive a link to download the PDF file. The PDF file works on Macs and PCs. Complete directions come with the product — see below. It’s easy and simple to use. You can have professionally designed certificates and coaching forms in minutes.
