Alex and his teammates love to play soccer. But why are there more referees at their games this season waving silly flags and stopping them right before they go in to score a goal? This fully illustrated storybook is intended to help youth soccer players understand what it means to be in an offside position.
iPlaySoccer! Books are instructional stories focused on advancing youth player development. The illustrated children's books teach foundational concepts and vocabulary in a fun way that allows children, parents and coaches to develop together in "the beautiful game." The series is not intended to replace the instruction of a coach or the learning derived from actual play. Rather, the purpose of these books is to assist the player in mastering concepts as the game becomes more complex.
Besides, the focus of iPlaySoccer! is on teaching children how to think independently, while also maintaining a collective understanding of the team during competition. This is an essential skill that helps young players not only in sport, but also in life. Each title is not intended to supplant the instruction of a coach, or the time a child spends learning a sport by playing it. Rather, the authors' purpose is to assist young players with their comprehension of sport in a way that is engaging, inspiring, and empowering.
To that end, no matter the level of play, the coach is the teacher, the player is the student, and this series is merely the provider of fun educational tools designed to reinforce what should be learned on the training ground.
Lindsay Little was a decorated student athlete and thrived in the role of creative midfielder. She helped her NJCAA teams play for two consecutive National Championship finals. Due to her passion for the game and tenacity for training she excelled at the club, Olympic Development Program, High School, NJCAA, & NCAA Division I levels. Her diverse soccer experience also includes being a certified referee and coach for various levels of youth teams.
Seth Little obtained his undergraduate degree in Physical Education, dual majoring in Coaching and Spanish. His passion lies in the theory of sport, tactics and strategy. He excelled at gridiron football, achieving all-American status before injuries decimated his career.
However, since his own AYSO days, he always loved the beautiful game. In 2007, he began the practice of law, and over the course of his legal career he has had the opportunity to consult with youth and semi-professional soccer clubs on issues relating to business organization, curriculum, best practices, policies and procedures, and general risk management.
Lindsay and Seth still play soccer together in various Las Vegas leagues, as they have for more than a decade. As parents of young soccer players, they simply want what's best for their children's development as a whole, including the integral part that athletics play in a child's well-being.
