As we have lost the two opening games 0-3 and 0-8, Matt & I discussed how we 
need to take positive action quickly so that the players could get the skills
and confidence during the school holidays to score more goals.

Here are two books that you may want to take out of Pittwater Library to discuss 
with your player and two Internet sites provided by Sue & Danny POPE.  

Matt is reviewing the books and may include a number of the Activities in
Practice - the names of these drills are included so you know what your 
player is talking about if he/she enjoys the Activity.

A	The Baffled Parents Guide to Great Soccer Drills

B	The Guinness Book of Skilful Soccer - more suited for 11 and above

C	Two Internet Sites for Coaching

A  	THE BAFFLED PARENTS GUIDE TO GREAT SOCCER DRILLS

This book has 125 different games/activities in 4 sections

a	Warm-up Activities

B	THE GUINNESS BOOK OF SKILFUL SOCCER

This is more suitable for older players - however it has some very good
ideas on how a playercan practice passing, trapping and shooting against
a wall 

C	INTERNET SITES

Sue and Danny POPE have also provide a couple of web-links that also 
provide extensive soccer tips. 

As yet have not had time to review in detail. 

"Footy for Kids" looks like it could be very helpful.

1	How to Coach U6 to U8

2	Footy for Kids - this looks very good
