What our readers say
"Soccer Coaching Weekly is one of the top resources to go to for content, knowledge and activities for soccer. I have and will continue to create entire youth programs based on SCW's articles. The writers are fantastic and give clear, easy to follow explanations on all their activities."
"I started using the soccer weekly from half through our season , first half of the year we were solid in picking up results as soon as the boys became used to the new way I was training the team went through the roof and went on a undefeated run of 9-10 games."
"It's great to hold onto each edition and make essentially a bible up, so that when we do have football problems, one of our first points of call is to see if we can address it using Soccer Coach Weekly."
