Book Alert: Soccer Is Fun without Parents

Released today!

Approximately 75 percent of children who play organized sports quit by age 13. While there is no definitive answer about why, many researchers suggest that it is because of pressure from parents. One referee always likes to say that he equates kid's soccer to a musical recital. Parents don't yell instructions to their seven-year old when they are singing or playing the piano. They are not jumping up from their seats when the proper chord is struck, yelling, "Great job, Jimmy!" or "Big kick on the next chord!" Yet, they feel it is OK to do so on the soccer field. Why?

This book will make every soccer parent and coach say, "I know
that person." Unfortunately, sometimes they'll be talking about
themselves. It's an entertaining and informative read as Peter not
only tells the stories of insane, yet normal, soccer parents but
delves into why and how our behavior needs to change.
