Do you coach footballers and want to build a practical, possession-based soccer curriculum? You’ve come to the right place!
Through The Thirds – from leading youth coach Tony Mee – offers a practical methodology for football coaches working with 12+ year-old footballers, who want to see their teams play with technique, confidence, and tactical intelligence.
Based around a real-world training programme – which has been developed and delivered by Academy coaches with Academy players – it provides a logical series of progressions, and the opportunity to develop players across all areas of the pitch, both offensively and defensively.
The practices are designed for the 11-a-side game, and different team formations, and provide a complete season’s programme of work. In turn, the book contains more than 140 fully-illustrated exercise plans in colour, alongside instructions for developing attacking play, strong defences, and effective transitions.
Chapters cover a host of areas, including: players’ roles and responsibilities, warm-ups, developing play from the defensive third, developing play in the attacking third (including finishes), transitions from the defending third, and more.
Whatever level you coach at, Through The Thirds is a must-read coaching guide!
