New Handbook For Soccer Moms

HAVE MORE FUN, SAVE YOURSELF FROM EMBARRASSMENT, AND KEEP YOUR KIDS HEALTHY, HAPPY & STRONG!

If you’re a soccer mom, you might find yourself asking some questions: What is a U9? Why is my daughter a striker? What is offsides? How do I flag? Why did my son get a penalty kick? Do headers hurt? What if they ask me to coach? What is FIFA? What is Osgood-Schlatter’s Disease, and why have I never heard of it before? Do I want to sign up my son on a Travel Team? How can my daughter get a college soccer scholarship? This invaluable handbook has all the answers to these and all of the questions you haven’t even thought of yet.

Soccer has become the sport of choice for families nationwide. Over 10 million 4-½- to-19-year olds will don their shinguards and play soccer in the U.S. this year. That means there are almost that many moms driving them to fields, cheering in the stands, and coaching their kids for the first time. From a child’s first walk onto a Little Kicks soccer field, through the ranks of childhood and teen soccer, the average Soccer Moms will spend months (if not years of her life) immersed in the sport. Soccer for Moms covers the nuts and bolts of the game for beginner and experienced soccer moms alike.

As Soccer Moms ourselves, we believe practices and games are much more enjoyable—and fun!—when you understand the basic rules of the game, know how to prepare your kids and yourself beforehand, and have proven strategies at your fingertips for successful parenting for your fit, on-the-go kids.

Soccer for Moms is loaded with insights from a mom who’s been there. Kerrie’s straight talk and tips derived from real-life soccer mom experiences will help families get more enjoyment out of the whole soccer experience, and learn to love the game, whether they’re playing, coaching, or cheering.

About the Author:
Kerrie Paige is a mother of three with more than 15 years of soccer experience—ranging from local recreational teams all the way up to state and regional-champion elite club teams. When not watching her sons play, she’s a mathematician running an international consulting company.

My son started playing soccer in the Spring, I have not idea what the rules are really, other than boundaries and goals. I would love to know what the heck was going on at the games.
