Ultimate Soccer Coaching Releases “Holistic” Soccer Training Guide for 8 to 14 Year Olds


The issue: An astonishing 85% of our youth soccer players are quitting the game by age 14! This startling statistic, published by the United States Soccer Federation (USSF), is due to boredom and burn out that accompanies a general lack of proper development. The solution: Ciplfied Soccer, a comprehensive, break-through coaching guide geared toward training and motivating coaches to offer their players fun and stimulating activities that maintain high interest and develop solid baseline and advanced skill levels. is excited to announce the release of “Ciplified Soccer – Coaching 8 to 14 Year Olds.” Written by USSF A Licensed coach, Sheldon Cipriani (Coach Cip), Ciplified Soccer eliminates repetitious drills and “dry formulas” that cause young players to lose interest and focuses instead on building skills through challenging fun-filled activities that are consistent throughout each practice session. Coaches learn the “how-to” of breaking soccer down into easily digestible chunks with age-appropriate exercises that closely resemble an actual soccer game.

“A common trend I have noted with many players is they are not technically sound enough, in addition to lacking creativity, imagination and game intelligence,” explains Coach Cip. “By trying to teach kids to be competitive before teaching them how to play, we lose a large number of players by the time they are 13 or 14 years of age. This is tragic and doesn’t have to happen. That is why I created Ciplified Soccer to enable coaches to have a very positive, pro-active and ongoing impact on the soccer behavior of their young players.”

Ciplfied Soccer includes diagrams, animated sequences and cutting-edge video demonstrations of the key skills to be developed throughout each soccer practice session. Among the topics covered are: passing/receiving, finishing, ball control, individual/collective defending, and dribbling moves.

Additionally, the guide addresses key coaching instructions regarding the use of neutral players, increasing intensity and speed of play, and tips for coaching vs. managing sessions. Both coaches and players find themselves enjoying not only their actual game times but their weekly practice sessions as well.

Ciplified Soccer emphasizes small-sided games to maximize the number of touches each individual player gets on the ball each practice. Every session provides players with continuous opportunities to explore the game, stay engaged and challenged, and develop creativity and imagination on the ball.
