Coaching youth soccer can be very rewarding, but for volunteer and novice coaches, it can also be more than a little intimidating. Fortunately, the American Sport Education Program(ASEP) knows what it takes to help you succeed.
Thousands of youth coaches have used the Coaching Youth Soccer book to achieve success. The Coaching Youth Soccer Video will help you create an even more successful coaching experience, showing you how to teach the most popular soccer tactics and techniques.
You can use the video in conjunction with the book or by itself. It presents more than 20 of the most important techniques and tactics for coaches to teach their young players. You’ll be given step-by-step instructions, and you’ll see young players clearly demonstrate the tactics and techniques.
The Coaching Youth Soccer Video provides excellent instruction for the beginning coach. It’s designed for volunteer and novice coaches of players ages 8 to 14 and for parents of players in that age group.

The American Sport Education Program (ASEP) is the most widely used and respected sport education program in the United States and the world. ASEP's mission is to help improve the sport experiences of all youth athletes by providing quality instructional resources, workshops, and courses for coaches, officials, administrators and parents. ASEP strives to spread it's philosophy of "athletes first, winning second" by providing the necessary tools to help put that philosophy to work in local programs and institutions.
Over one million people have used ASEP products since the program began in 1981. More than thirty states now require ASEP courses for their high school coaches, and more than 200 universities use ASEP courses and resources. ASEP courses are used by many national and local sport organizations as well, including the National Federation of State High School Associations, National Recreation and Park Association, U.S. Army youth sports, USA Baseball, USA Volleyball, USA Gymnastics, US Swimming, and the U.S. Tennis Association, just to name a few. ASEP courses—taught by 3,000 instructors nationwide—have and will continue to show adults involved in youth sports how to place the physical, mental, and social development of an athlete before winning.
