Focused for Soccer - 2nd Edition
The second addition is completely updated and has some great sections dealing with the female athletes and their motivational and performance needs. This is the most influential book on soccer performance I have ever read. I recommend it and know you will love it! Kindle Edition Verified Purchase. The information and practical suggestions in the book are very useful. Bill explains the different psychological elements of the sport very well.
My players and I have been made aware of how the mind is the athlete and the body is the means. We recently were crowned champions in a mini tournament, I used a lot of Bills suggestions during training and when preparing for the matches. The players were taught to keep their emotions under control. The players have given me feedback suggesting their understanding of the topics we discuss during our team talks.
I will revisit the book for inspiration whenever I feel the need. For the good of the game!!!!! Its a gift so will let you know after the holidays.

One person found this helpful. Bill Beswick has an amazing ability to distill complex psychological issues into an understandable format. Helpful even if you do not coach soccer. A must-have for every coach! Saw Beswick at the SMU coaching clinic and he was absolute spot on in his presentation on the role of the coach and the development of the player in the modern game of soccer. Need to make available in library or reprint as it is hard to find. One person found this helpful 2 people found this helpful. Beswick presents very practical information on the psychology of soccer.
Most coaches ignore these ideas and, yet, these very issues make or break a team. This book does a pretty good job of explaining the different mental aspects of sports pychology for soccer and is very comprehensive. However, I found the book lacking in simple application of the ideas. He does have a Master Coaching DVD series which probably better presents the application of these ideas.
Although, if you have some background in psychology, you can adapt the ideas and develop practical applications on your own. Focused for Soccer - 2nd Edition by Bill Beswick.
