Anson Dorrance - Winningest Coach in College Soccer Recommends That Soccer Starts at Home
"Tom Byer’s Soccer Starts At Home is a game-changer — A revolutionary approach to developing better soccer players in America."
"I've known Tom Byer for 25 years and over those years we've talked a lot of soccer. In that time, he's focused his coaching skills on children and reached the point where he is, without any doubt, one of the world's leading thinkers on teaching children the technical skills of soccer."
"Tom Byer and Soccer Starts at Home is going to completely change youth soccer development for those parents who follow it. This book is a great read, easy to understand, and you don't have to be a soccer player to help your kid excel!"
"Through the development of his own sons, Tom Byer has shown that what has been accepted until now as common wisdom in the world of soccer is, in fact, wrong. Those of us involved in soccer can not help but to acknowledge this fact and humbly accept what Tom is telling us, because this will lead to a new kind of development in the game."
"Three of America’s best players, Landon Donovan, Clint Dempsey, and Christian Pulisic all acknowledge they had their first start at soccer at home."
"This book should be bought by every parent in Britain, Canada, and the United States and beyond to understand what a child who likes soccer can learn and how they can learn. It’s not a textbook; it’s a guide. It’s a philosophy that is so basic and so true it’s just amazing that it’s taking so long to be recognized."
"The acquisition of skills- math skills, piano skills, soccer skills- and the encouragement to acquire skills is absolutely fundamental in the development of the brain. Tom Byer is transforming how soccer skills are acquired and can be taught. His is a brilliant insight."
