Book Description :

As the adult game has increased in popularity, youth soccer has also seen significant expansion in recent years. The popularity of the youth game is set to continue. Young boy and girl players wish to emulate professional soccer stars and the professional game, often with long-term financial rewards in mind, is increasingly keen to develop young talent. Applied sports science is now a well-established feature of the adult game but the sports science that supports modern football does not translate directly into the youth game. The coaches of young players need specific information about children. Themes explored in this text include: growth of physiological systems development of motor and perceptive skills paediatric environmental physiology prevention of injury diet and nutrition youth fitness and skills training effective teaching and coaching of juniors the role of football academies. Youth Soccer: From Science to Performance blends current child-focused sports science theory with youth-specific coaching practice to help create soccer development strategies for children. It promotes knowledge and understanding in all these areas and will further professional expertise amongst coaches who wish to develop the all year round potential of youth soccer players and train the stars of the future.

Book Description :

The Football Code outlines an innovative, ground-breaking philosophy that will change the way you watch the beautiful game. In a sport which is so largely dictated by randomness, how can we accurately assess the performance of teams, players and managers? How can we tell who is good and who is simply lucky? The Football Code teaches how a more scientific approach can eradicate the damaging effects of chance, leaving a clearer image of what is actually happening on the field of play. Only then can managers sign better players. Only then can pundits offer better judgements. Only then can fans compile better fantasy football teams. This book addresses the intrinsic errors and inefficiencies which plague the sport, whilst at the same time revealing the top secret methods that professional gambling syndicates use to predict future outcomes. Above all, it discloses the top secret, data-driven system that one football mastermind has used to make millions in the betting markets, and that has allowed the Championship team he owns to punch spectacularly above its financial weight. Football has finally found it's answer to baseball's 'Moneyball'. "Any fan who doesn't read this book will be left behind." - William Lund. "Unveils a revolutionary approach to the transfer market. Truly exceptional." - FootballNow. "A masterclass. The sport of football will never be the same again" - Levi Janssen.
