The practices are designed to inspire and motivate the players in real game situations that give them freedom of choice and movement both in and out of possession. The basic techniques of passing, dribbling, shooting, tackling and heading will all be used but with use to solve a match problem rather than constant repetition. The sessions have goals and objectives for both the attacking and defending players in order to aid the tempo, competition and enjoyment of the practice.

Make Defending Fun! For too long, defending practice has been presented by coaches and received by players as a necessary evil, filled with unimaginative drills that provide players with little or no reward for getting it right. This book contains 100 exercises and small sided games designed to inspire players to become better defenders both tactically and technically in a fun and competitive training environment. The games are set up to re-create the unpredictability of actual match play, with no long queues or endless repetitions. Because of this, players are more involved in the practice and are thus learning "how to play the game" and developing the skills to deal with the ever-evolving situations on the pitch.

From Science to Performance, Youth Soccer: From Science to Performance provides the first comprehensive guide to the science behind the development of young players. Each chapter in this innovative collection by world leading specialists demonstrates how sport science research can, and should, directly inform coaching practice. The book includes: • growth of young physiological systems • development of children’s motor and perceptive skills • paediatric environmental physiology • prevention of injury in young players • diet and nutrition • youth fitness and soccer skills training • effective teaching and coaching of junior players • the role of football academies. Youth Soccer: From Science to Performance is an essential resource for students and academics. It will also be an invaluable guide for professionals involved in youth soccer, including coaches at all levels, PE teachers and physiotherapists. Gareth Stratton is Reader of Paediatric Exercise Science and Chairs the REACH (Research into Exercise Activity and Children’s Health) Group at Liverpool John Moores University. Thomas Reilly is Professor of Sports Science and Director of the Research Institute for Sport and Exercise Sciences at Liverpool John Moores University. A. Mark Williams is Professor of Motor Behaviour in the Research Institute for Sport and Exercise Sciences at Liverpool John Moores University. Dave Richardson is Senior Lecturer in Sport Management and Development at Liverpool John Moores University. Association football, otherwise known as soccer, is the most popular global sport with millions of males and females participating in the game. The production line of young footballers operates non-stop with each individual having dreams and aspirations of ‘making it to the top’ and emulating his/her superheroes. Many youngsters have their bedroom walls and rooms plastered with memorabilia and the expectations for success at all levels of competition are high. Furthermore, greater emphasis has been placed on boosting the production line at the start with a playground to podium approach. The focus on youth soccer has grown since the huge financial implications of ‘spotting a future star’ together with increased professional approaches to training and education have encouraged coaches, parents and administrators to support soccer development programmes. These approaches have emerged since the early 1980s and development programmes and structures are highly sophisticated and well funded in the new millennium. It is against this backdrop that a book considering essential scientific aspects of youth soccer is required. Over the years, there have been various texts covering the principles of youth soccer coaching and training. These texts include playing principles and practices with an almost infinite number of soccer activities, skill practices and strategic approaches described. Soccer coaching material is now readily available at the end of a computer terminal and thousands of web sites dedicated to soccer reflect the global demand. Surprisingly, therefore, there are few if any dedicated texts on the science of youth soccer. Given the emphasis on this sector of the playing population the need to fill this gap in the literature is important. Since its inception in 1987, the World Congress of Science and Football has been held once every four years. The first Congress included a theme titled ‘strain in adolescent footballers’ reflecting the concerns about youth football at that time. Over subsequent congresses, scientific reports on varied aspects of paediatric sports and exercise science and youth soccer have been presented. Other introduction to youth soccer science.

O Desporto Escolar pretende ser um instrumento de promoção da saúde, de inclusão e promoção social, de combate ao insucesso e abandono escolar, razões que justificam uma forte aposta do Governo neste sub-sistema do desporto infanto-juvenil. Há mais de 50 anos que a oferta do Desporto Escolar está prevista no sistema educativo, tendo, a partir de 2008-2009, sido tornada obrigatória em todos os estabelecimentos do Ensino Básico e Ensino Secundário, mantendo-se a adesão voluntária dos praticantes. Esta aposta é suscetível de ser traduzida em números. Existem atualmente mais de 40 modalidades desportivas desenvolvidas na rede de escolas, variando de acordo com os recursos materiais e humanos disponíveis. A importância assumida pelo Desporto Escolar nos projetos educativos, na vida dos 700.000 jovens envolvidos na atividade interna e externa e na comunidade em que a participação desportiva ocorre resulta num substancial esforço de formação de árbitros, juízes, oficiais, treinadores, professores, dirigentes. A presente obra acrescenta valor à política da Direção-Geral de Inovação e Desenvolvimento Curricular, que tem como objetivo primordial a salvaguarda da qualidade da prática oferecida aos jovens em contexto escolar, combinando a opinião de peritos e estudos em aspetos tão importantes como os assuntos expressos no título do livro: “crescimento, maturação e talento”. Desejamos e esperamos que a parceria entre a DGIDC e a Universidade de Coimbra possa continuar a dar frutos.

“Enlightening” essays on athletes, activism, and the important role sports plays in our society (Publishers Weekly). Sportscaster Howard Cosell dubbed it “rule number one of the jockocracy”: sports and politics just don’t mix. But in truth, some of our most important debates about class, race, religion, sex, and the raw quest for political power are played out both on and off the field. From the NFL lockout and the role of soccer in the Arab Spring to the Penn State sexual abuse scandals and Tim Tebow’s on-field genuflections, this timely and hard-hitting new book from the “conscience of American sports writing” offers new insights and analysis of headline-grabbing sports controversies (The Washington Post). It explores the shady side of the NCAA; the explosive 2011 MLB All-Star Game; and why the Dodgers crashed and burned. It covers the fascinating struggles of gay and lesbian athletes to gain acceptance, female athletes to be more than sex symbols, and athletes everywhere to assert their collective bargaining rights as union members. Dave Zirin also illustrates the ways that athletes are once again using their exalted platforms to speak out and reclaim sports from the corporate interests that have taken it hostage. In Game Over, he cheers the victories—but also reflects on how far we have yet to go. “A book that no thinking sports fan can afford to miss.” —Jonathan Mahler, author of Ladies and Gentlemen, The Bronx Is Burning

Growing up and living in Kibera, Kenya, Abdul Kassim was well aware of the disproportionate number of challenges faced by women due to the extreme gender inequalities that persist in the slums. After being raised by his aunts, mother, and grandmother and having a daughter himself, he felt that he needed to make a difference. In 2002, Abdul started a soccer team for girls called Girls Soccer in Kibera (GSK), with the hope of fostering a supportive community and providing emotional and mental support for the young women in the town. The soccer program was a success, but the looming dangers of slum life persisted, and the young women continued to fall victim to the worst kinds of human atrocities. Indeed, it was the unyielding injustice of these conditions that led Abdul to the conclusion that soccer alone was not enough to create the necessary systemic change. In 2006, after much work, the Kibera Girls Soccer Academy (KGSA) was established with their first class of 11 girls and 2 volunteer teachers. Today, KGSA is composed of 20 full-time staff, provides a host of artistic and athletic programs for more than 130 students annually, and continues to expand. By providing academics inside and outside of the classroom along with artistic and athletic opportunities, KGSA inspires the young women of Kibera to become advocates for change within their own communities and for Kenya as a whole. Play Like a Girl tells the KGSA story through Abdul’s voice and vision and the stories of key staff and students. It is written by Ellie Roscher who spent 2 summers doing research at KGSA and several years writing this book.
