Anson Dorrance - Winningest Coach in College Soccer Recommends That Soccer Starts at Home®
Thank you so much for writing the book “Soccer Starts at Home”. Your approach to soccer growth in young kids is instilled in my son’s training. Here in California lots of the soccer club coaches rely on speed & strength of kick at such an early age. We took the opposite approach & just worked on his ball mastery and touches since he is the smallest in his age group. As of today he is the most skilled player when it comes to techniques among his peers. He may not be the strongest kicker, however he is the most technical & he enjoys it. He is happy when coaches ask him to demonstrate certain moves. This is such a confidence builder.
Dad of 2 Boys
Tom, just wanted to say thanks. Your philosophy couldn’t be more spot on. Both my boys (5 & 4) have fallen in love with the sport. My oldest’s confidence and natural leadership has blossomed. He’s much more assertive in everything. I could barely get this email sent to you because of so many “daddy watch this” and “daddy look at this new trick”. Not only has this done wonders for them, but my relationship with them has grown so much as well. Thank you so much!
"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!"
"Three of America’s best players, Landon Donovan, Clint Dempsey, and Christian Pulisic all acknowledge they had their first start at soccer at home."
"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."
