Mighty Mites uses what we know about children and infuses it with youth soccer. Utilizing exciting stories, we engage young players and achieve a deeper understanding of the game than most would believe possible through skill development. This simple approach helps coaches easily accomplish more while keeping every player active as everyone has the best time imaginable. This book has all you would ever need to run a complete season, not only for a parent volunteer but for club officials looking for programming throughout their organization. Chris Castell has been involved with youth coaching for a number of years, primarily as a Coerver coach. He is currently the South Carolina State Director for Coerver Coaching. He played in England and collegiately for the University of Montevallo, reaching the Final Four of the national tournament as he gained the school record for the hightest number of starts.

Here is where the sessions begin. It can be a little difficult to read words and put them into actions, but do not worry as you can do no wrong. If you are teaching the players to move with the ball in a certain way which is wrong as far as the terminology goes, you have still taught the players to flow with a ball. Who knows, you may have invented the best soccer skill known to man by accident and will become the most famous coach in the world. If this does actually happen, you can keep the fame and fortune if I get some of the credit. Perhaps name the skill after me? Just an idea.

These sessions contain a mixture of techniques and skills where most coaches, experienced or new, will not necessarily know the term for the action. Here is a complete breakdown of how to accomplish each skill related to the session the skill is used in.
