"At long last a comprehensive training manual on how to coach young athletes. This informative book by one of South Africa's leading and most respected coaches deals comprehensively with the fact that young athletes and children differ from adults and should be coached differently. A must-have for teachers and coaches." ... Ruanda Boetzee. 

This book is for coaches, teachers and parents who have young athletes in their school or training groups.

The book provides many well illustrated activities to use for the selection of young athletes for further coaching. A series of drills and coaching tips, suggestions for planning programmes, and methods for improving the level of safety are provided. Descriptions of major errors which young athletes commit, and how to correct them, are also discussed. Teaching techniques, and the correct drills to use for faster and more power, are also included.
