Coaching Set Plays Book
The 12 Key Principles For Set-Play Success By Tony Waiters
Set Plays (set pieces, restarts, dead ball situations and all that stuff) are critical for the success of any player or team. The difference between winning and losing is often the successful execution of set play situations both on offense and defense. It has been calculated that as many as 40% of all goals scored are from set play situations. In a 20 game season, what if you could score 5 more goals and concede 5 less goals - a 10 goal spread: the difference between first and second place, winning and losing, champions and runners up. The book clearly explains and demonstrates all aspects of set play situations, both offense and defense, and can turn a good season in to a great season. It will make a difference.
This book contains a thorough and detailed explanation of the principles of set plays, both attacking and defending. Packed with diagrams & illustrations that will enable coaches of all experience levels to understand the concepts of set plays and improve a teams confidence and performance in set play situations. Coach Waiters has over 30 years of international soccer experience, both as player and coach and is also a successful best selling author of several soccer coaching books & videos.
