News Release: A new book on Soccer Coaching and play has just been published.

Streetwise Soccer by Huronia's  Technical Director Steve Payne

    When was the last time you saw a young child climb a tree? So much of life today is pre-planned, organized and micro-managed, that we have even removed a child's freedom to play. Nowhere is that more evident than in sport. Some adults try to live their dreams through their children; but kids have dreams of their own. Children love to explore and play and we as coaches and adults must let them.

    'Streetwise Soccer' inspired by the Brazilians' approach to the game is the result of 12 years of study and research. The book explains how to transfer the beauty of street soccer to the training field.

All experts agree that the best training ground of all is the street. This book, endorsed by highly regarded professional players and coaches, includes games and tips that can be used by any coach at any level.

    Also included, are stories from  Steve Payne's soccer travels around the world. Tales from Brazil, Australia, the Netherlands and Canada show the freedom that imagination brings to soccer. Without imagination there is no creativity. Without creativity there is no joy.

    The book enables coaches to put children in an environment where they can learn themselves through trial and error. A coach can pick a theme to work on or, better still, stand back and let the kids do what they do best - play.

    The Huronia District Soccer Association is proud that one of our own has written a book that can be used to help our coaches and players enjoy the game we all love.
