U.S. Youth Soccer Coaching Manual: 
The Art and Science of Coaching

"The needs of the child (while playing soccer) should 
be placed above the needs, convenience and 
self-interest of the adults/coaches.  True (youth) player development focuses on the development of the player, 
not the development of the team!  Up to age 12, this 
should be the only criteria used in designing and 
running (youth) programs."
