| Greetings from CoachDeck!|
"It's a great training tool!" "It's a great coach appreciation gift!" Actually, it's both. Your coaches will love it that you said, "Thank you," by giving them a CoachDeck. And even the most skilled and well-trained coaches will enjoy the great drills and games within.
In this issue: In the first of a two-part series, Dave Simeone brings us two of the four cornerstones to successful club soccer. Brian Gotta's "Win, or Be the Star?" examines what motivates kids to play sports and how coaches can keep them playing. And John Ellsworth's "Getting More Playing Time" is a must-read for parents who feel their youngsters are not receiving as much time on the field as they deserve.
