Recommended Books for Youth Soccer Parents
As a Youth Soccer Coach for over two decades, it is a given that I field a lot of questions from Parents about their kids in soccer. Regardless of what age or level a child plays at, it can be a challenging road to navigate. The RSC is here to help!
I strongly recommend the following Books for ALL of our Parents involved in Youth Sports. These two books provide Parents with a world of wisdom and advice on how to successfully navigate the journey of being a Youth Sports Parent no matter if your child plays at the Rec or Select level of Sports...these books put things in the right perspective and will help you to better enjoy your experience. After all, the kids are the drivers and the Parents are just the passengers. I thoroughly enjoyed both of these books and they made me a better Coach, a better DOC, a better Fan of the Game and a better Father to my kids that play sports and it can do the same for you! Enjoy!
