Youth Soccer Training Slides

Soccer is the beautiful game, as widely recognized around the world. January 2014 statistics show that over 50 million youth play soccer worldwide. Early training of soccer means a lifetime of love of the sport. The enjoyment of soccer transcends mere involvement as a player, coach, fan, sponsor, dad, or mom. There are subtle lessons of life to be learned from soccer as a team sport. One aspect that is often ignored is the potential to use soccer to teach basic math and science principles, which are essential for later career paths in the technical fields. It is this void that prompted me to write this book as a way to leverage soccer training to spark the interest of kids and adults in the applications of math and science. ?Youth Soccer Training Slides: A Math and Science Approach? is a sequel following my first soccer book of 2010 entitled ?Physics of Soccer: Using Math and Science to Improve Your Game.? That first book was published to coincide with the 2010 FIFA World Cup Tournament Soccer in South Africa. This second book is written to coincide with the 2014 FIFA World Cup Soccer Tournament in Brazil. Although this book targets youth soccer training, it is quite suitable and recommended for adult soccer training as well. The technical principles are general enough to apply to all levels of soccer training. The presentation slides format of the book makes it amenable for pick-and-choose applications of specific training topics. In his 2014 book, the Great Pele of Brazil emphasizes ?Why Soccer Matters.? In the opinion of this author, soccer, indeed, matters not only because of its socio-economic impacts around the world, but also because of the various other benefits it offers. Soccer matters because it is a thinking game and the ultimate team sport. The theme and premise offered by Youth Soccer Training Slides cover various math and science topics to enhance the understanding and enjoyment of the game.

Whether it's called soccer, football, or the world's game, soccer is fun and has been deemed the most popular sport in the world. Soccer is about motion. Physics is about the laws of motion, and it can be applied to ball games. Combining soccer and physics is one way to appreciate the high-speed aspects of the sport. In The Physics of Soccer, author Deji Badiru introduces basic mathematics and science concepts in an interesting, useful, and engaging way to enhance how the game is played. The Physics of Soccer teaches both players and coaches how to look at soccer in a new way beyond the physical undertaking it represents to understand the marvels of science, technology, engineering, and mathematics that give soccer its life, power, and thrills. With a background as both a scientist and soccer coach, Badiru also examines the science behind game scenarios, field-based decisions, the geometry of field play, and strategies for assessing the implications of directional motions of opponents and teammates on the field. The Physics of Soccer is an essential resource for any team looking for an advantage that can make the difference between just playing, and winning.

Learn why math and soccer go hand in hand. Here’s a riddle for you: what do soccer and math have in common? At first glance, you might say, “Nothing!” We tend to think of sports and STEM as operating in two different hemispheres, populated either by dumb jocks or “eggheads.” But David Sumpter argues that math and soccer are intimately intertwined. Soccermatics (2016) explores this theory in depth. Do you want more free book summaries like this?
