The purpose of this research is to explore the context of youth recreational soccer, and to examine how coaches volunteering in this context learn to coach soccer. Framed within Jarvis' (2006, 2007, 2008, 2009) theory of lifelong learning and employing a mixed-methods approach, this dissertation research had two distinct phases. Phase One involved the collection of data via an on-line survey from 433 recreational youth soccer coaches from Eastern Ontario. The survey served to collect demographic information, as well as general information about their team, their role as a recreational coach, and their approach to learning. The data analysis for the on-line surveys was comprised of an analysis of descriptive statistics. Phase Two involved semi-structured interviews. Recruited through their participation in Phase One, 30 coaches were purposefully targeted and interviewed based on their varied biographies, experiences, and social contexts. Additionally, seven soccer administrators were interviewed. Interview data was analyzed according to the principles of thematic analysis (Braun & Clark, 2006). Findings examine the biographies of youth recreational coaches, their coaching context, how recreational coaches learn to coach, issues of shared responsibilities related to learning, as well as practical implications. It is suggested that recreational coaches differ from one-another on many factors, and that the context of recreational youth soccer is similarly diverse and presents unique challenges to coaches. Recreational youth coaches learn to coach through a variety of sources; mostly through informal learning situations. Responsibilities surrounding coach development fall on the shoulders of individual coaches and clubs, as well as regional, provincial, and national associations; and suggestions for increased engagement in this regard are provided.

In an ever-changing world, such as soccer's, only intelligence may truly help, since, besides being able to act effectively, it is essential to know how to think about the best way to act. Therefore, in the more recent years of modern soccer, the tactical component has been increasingly valued and diffused. Particularly in Brazil, this dimension of sport performance has been studied and applied by many professionals of this field, from the youth academies to professional level. This book was conceived to help those who devote much of their time to improving the quality of the game, and to training highly enlightened, creative and intelligent players. Hence, this work presents procedures and ideas that, besides assisting in the task of evaluating the tactical performance of soccer players and teams, also allow improving their expression throughout the learning and training phase.

The assistant soccer coach has existed for decades, and is a standard figure within the coaching staff, with specific roles, functions and responsibilities. However, I find it strange that nobody has yet described this profession formally. I used to only be a head coach, until one day I was proposed to be the assistant coach of U18 team of FC Barcelona. That is when I started thinking about writing this book, moved by my desire to continue learning. If I wanted to train in my new role I could only do it by asking others and observing training sessions. But I was missing one of the pillars that has forever supported my training: studying and reading. With this book I hope to cover that lack of information. The book is divided into two parts: the first is based on describing the assistant coach in professional soccer and I have not found a more practical way to do it than through interviews with assistant coaches. Each interviewee has contributed his experiences from working with the most recognized soccer coaches: I am talking about people who have worked with Vicente del Bosque, Ernesto Valverde, Luis Enrique, Pep Guardiola, Mauricio Pochettino, Sergio González, Quique Sánchez Flores, and Paulo Sousa. The second part of the book is related to Youth soccer, which I have experienced in clubs like Atlético de Madrid and FC Barcelona. I propose the role of the assistant coach working in Youth soccer to be more formative and educational than what is currently given, and I want to direct their effort towards two dimensions: the team's sporting performance (which the vast majority do) and the individualized analysis of the young player (which very few do). This second dimension is described in the last chapter, to demonstrate a new vision of assistant coaches in Youth soccer, who in my view have to dedicate their time to improving the players as an athlete and as a person in a more personalized and integral way.

Abstract: This study explored the usage of Anterior Cruciate Ligament (ACL) injury prevention programs by women's soccer coaches across the United States. The knowledge and attitudes towards these injury prevention programs was surveyed in order to understand why every coach has not implemented an ACL injury prevention program. ACL injuries plague female soccer athletes and every year billions of dollars are spent on their treatment and care. Researchers have developed programs that address the factors predisposing female athletes to knee injuries and these programs have been proven to reduce injury rates. It is unknown how prevalent these ACL injury prevention programs are being used. In an attempt to find a demographic of coaches to target for education on ACL injury prevention, it was found through surveying coaches across the United States that the majority of coaches needed further education rather than a target demographic.
