What our satisfied coaches say about our books and service:
We are particularly proud of this letter we recently received: coach’s letter
Awesome! Thank you! Im a college student and I always lack time coming up with my practices, your drills are very familiar from when I played in college so it’s nice having them already organized 🙂
I used your competitive sample yesterday and it went amazingly! I’m trying your fast break today. I’m running camp week this week 12-5 (eastern time) so I will order those books later tonight! Thank you for putting that package together for me!
Victoire M., Ohio
I appreciate the honest approach to your business. …I played soccer for 12 years (1974-1986) and have 5 years coaching experience in a Rec. Council in-house league. I attended a copuple of local coaching clinics,(as you well know that playing the game and teaching the game to young children are two very different things.) Because of the success my in-house teams enjoyed, the Rec. Council asked me to put together a travel soccer team (Boys U10) from the in-house league (Dec. 2009). Travel soccer is a whole different animal. After our first indoor season we were scouted by two club teams wanting to recruit me and the whole team.
Your books are the exact thing I needed to keep the players moving forward. Your intro in the Youth and Kids books is spot on. When other coaches ask me how I do so well I cited those principles from the clinics which is identical to your philosophy. After I read your books I forwarded your website to some other coaches I know urging them to investigate…
In closing, I am completely satisfied with your books, achieving instant success in practice with them (I used the Youth book the first night right after I purchased them). You have delivered the exact thing needed for coaches who do not coach for a living and have limited preparation time. I will be coming back to you as my needs expand.
Rick D., Parkville MD
First of all let me thank you for all your help and for answering ALL my questions. Your suggestion about the (kids) book was right on. I actually used one of the warm up drills at my practice yesterday and the girls loved it and had fun doing it. Your product is worth every penny and perfect for a coach like myself that did not play soccer all the time when growing up.
Coach Jim Sauceda, Colorado, USA
“Hi Tom! I have purchased Competitive Pro straight after receiving your e-mail and gave it to my husband. He loved it! Thanks again for your support, I was very impressed! “
Coach Missy, USA
“In the fall of ’07 I ordered a set of the soccer drill books, I love the books and bragged about them to all my coaching friends. It was my first time coaching in over 6 years and thanks to the drill and info in the books my team took 1st place.”
Coach Christina, Georgia, USA
“I purchased your “Goalie & Systems 3-pack” (with the Competive soccer) 10 days ago and your books are quite simply OUTSTANDING! I have purchased more books and DVD’s about soccer, than I care to admit. Although, most of these books have been good resources, I have not come across anything that puts it all together like “soccerpracticebooks”. I have already utilized 2 of your practices with my spring team and am very pleased with the results. The practices allowed my girls to learn concepts that suprised me.”
Coach Robert, Bel Air Blaze , Bel Air, MD, USA
“Once again, I want to say thank you for all of your support, patience and explanations. Your thoughtful and prompt replies to my questions and concerns played a big part in giving me the confidence I needed to become a coach. By the way, thanks to you I had several parents mention how excited they were to see the girls learn how to attack the goal.”
Richard Jones, U10 Blue Dolphins, Oklahoma City
“Tom, I coach every day from little kids all the way through college, from your typical beginner to being the MA ODP Goalkeeper coach. I have used your free samples and they were great. I am really looking forward to using these drills, so far they look really good.”
Coach Ryan, Massachusetts, USA
“I just wanted to let you know how helpfull your book is. I bought it on a Friday afternoon (practice day) after searching the internet for 1v1 activities. I saw that the samples tended to follow the US Youth Soccer guidelines, so I gave it a shot. The first practice was well received by my 10 year old girls. I had a chance to use them 3 times before our season ended, and asked if they liked the format of “my” new practices…I got a resounding “YES! It was FUN!”, from the whole group of girls. I cannot wait to run a whole season using the book, it covers tough to coach concepts in a way that is easy for this age group to follow…and they all have fun at the same time. I start coaching a U-10 boys team and if they like it as much as my girls do, I should have talented teams and happy players”
Coach Dave, USSF D licensed coach
“Hi Tom, Very impressed. In fact, I passed through your site on numerous occassions and must admit I am extremely impressed with all the fantastic material you have, especially the goalkeeper related material. My name is John and I run Keeper Skool which is a live scientific journal that provides heaps of fitness information that the soccer goalkeeper can utilize.”
John Stevanja, Keeper Skool
“Tom, I want to thank you for making these books available. Over a year ago I purchased the indoor practice drills and the 9-12 practice drills. These are great. You make it easy select the appropriate practices for what skills we are targeting. The kids love them and tell us our practices are fun. We just finished try-outs and we had the most kids show up for our try-outs of the 4 teams in our town (30 kids) and we are the C team. We had kids come from the A team to our team because they wanted to have fun. Your practices are a big part of that. This morning I purchased the system of play book. This book helped us validate the system we chose but more importantly it makes it very clear what responsibility each positions has and what we need to communicate to the kids. I have a couple books on systems of play but most are written at a level that is not appropriate for u12 players and focus on high school and above. Thanks again for these books and making them affordable.”
Coach Lou, U.S.A.
“Thanks for your prompt response. I have now successfully downloaded the book. Looks terrific…. send me the Tactics and Strategy book–I notice it’s the same price, and if it’s up to the standard of the Practice book, I’m sure I’ll be able to make good use of it. Thanks very much.”
Coach Matt, Quebec, Canada
“Love the books and recommended them at the league games today.”
Coach David, Pennsylvania, U.S.A.
“We used one of your practice guides last night and it worked well.”
Coach Kelly, Georgia, U.S.A.
“I used your free sample practice as my practice tonight and I was extremely happy with the results. All the drills worked with my U9 Mixed soccer team and the kids were really enjoying them”
Coach Christine, Ontario, Canada
“Your book was a big hit, lot’s of soccer players and coaches were impressed, …… went over it with a fine tooth comb and decided it was better than most and so helpful with drills”
Coach Mitch, California, U.S.A.
“I was EXTREMELY happy with the quality of the book. I will be using it for a 3 y.o. team and I am sure it will work great. Thanks again.”
Coach Dax, California, U.S.A.
“I have just taken over a coaching position within my soccer club and have been searching for sites that will help me in training drills and the like. I just want to say that this is one of the best sites I have come across and wish you all the best in its development. Thanks for keeping information free for all to find.”
Coach Erik, Missouri, U.S.A.
“Thank you very much for helping me out. I look forward to using your drills and other info in soccer practices next year. I’m going to coach my son’s Under 8s team.”
Coach Larry, Queensland, Australia.
“Hi I just wanted to let you know that I got the information and I appreciate it … Every thing worked great and it will be a big help for me, thank you again.”
Coach Mary, Missouri, U.S.A.

Coach Cynthia, California, U.S.A.
“I have used your books with my women’s team and everything worked great.”

Coach Douglas, Baltimore, U.S.A.
