A-League Skills and Drills : Learn to Play Like the A-League's Top Players
Soccer is Australia's fastest growing sport among boys and girls aged 5-14. With this book in hand, even if they belong to a club they can practise and hone their skills at home at any time. In 2007, author Alistair Edwards and other FFA consultants visited some of the top football-playing nations to investigate the 'player development secrets' of these countries. A-League Skills and Drills reflects the findings of that research and is a must-have manual for kids who want to develop the techniques that characterise the world's best players. There are easy-to-follow instructions for 20 soccer drills that will help kids learn basic ball skills. The exercises, accompanied by photographs, are simple and fun, and the text speaks directly to young readers. Alistair Edwards also explains how each skill is important to a player's game and he provides a handy checklist of the key points for each exercise.
