This book has arisen out of a need for a text which tackles the special issues relating to coaching children (from 6 - 16) in sport. Academics (many with coaching experience) and practitioners have been commissioned to write on their specialist areas.
"An ideal book for the coach, the teacher and for students who are working towards a qualification in Physical Education or Sports Studies." - Physical Education Review
"This text is by far the more comprehensive yet readable one I have found in this field. Definitely a user-friendly book designed to be read over and over again and continually used as a reference text. I would recommend this text as a must for anyone involved with children and sport at whatever level." - Coaching News
"…a useful resource to practising coaches at most levels who deal with children and would also be a suitable accompaniment for undergraduate courses focussing on children's sport. It comes highly recommended." - British Journal of Physical Education
"This book will be an essential guide for all sport coaches involved in training…it will also provide an excellent introduction to the subjects for students" - Bundesinstitut fur Sportwissenschaft
