Soccer, the most popular sport in the world, is scoring big with schoolchildren in the United States. In fact, the growth of youth soccer in this country over the past decade has been nothing short of astounding. Yet, despite the rapidly increasing numbers of American kids participating in soccer, there has been no book addressing the concerns and questions of a soccer family--until now. This pioneering volume begins by answering parents' basic question: -How do I chose the right soccer team for my child? -What equipment does my child need, and how much will it cost? -How do I know if my child is being coached properly? -How can I learn the finer points of the game? But the book goes beyond these fundamentals, covering: -Nutrition and hydration for young athletes -Improving soccer skills -Conditioning and stretching -Meeting your athlete's nutritional needs -Moving to higher levels of soccer competition -Special concerns for girls -Being a supportive fan and parent The book's two authors, one a devoted " soccer mom" and the other an accomplished professional player and coach, offer unique insights into all aspects of the sport, creating the definitive reference for millions of soccer parents nationwide.
