US Soccer's guide to better young players

If you are involved or know someone who is involved in youth soccer programs, you will want to take notice of this.
U.S. Soccer’s Coaching Education Department has released a new publication designed to give youth and junior level soccer coaches in the United States a set of fundamental tools to help open up the game of soccer to young players in ways that celebrate the sport’s spontaneous qualities. The 70-page “Best Practices for Coaching Soccer in the United States” coaching book serves as the sport’s definitive new player development guidelines.

Here is the link to the 70-page PDF document with all the suggestions.

It is fantastic that US Soccer has done this. The higher quality training the kids get, the better our team will be in 10-years.
