The Soccer Fence from the Author: Phil Bildner. In a country struggling with acceptance, hope can come in many different forms. As a boy, Hector loved playing soccer in his small Johannesburg township. He dreamed of playing on a real pitch with the boys from another part of the city, but apartheid made that impossible. Then, in 1990, Nelson Mandela was released from prison, and apartheid began to crumble. The march toward freedom in South Africa was a slow one, but when the beloved Bafana Bafana national soccer team won the African Cup of Nations, Hector realized that dreams once impossible could now come true. This poignant story of friendship artfully depicts a brief but critical moment in South Africa’s history and the unique role that sports can play in bringing people together.

Fundamentals Of Role Based Youth Soccer from the Author: James Cork. Do you coach youth soccer? Who is the most important coach your charges will have over their career? You are! Yes, some coach who is more “qualified” than you can later teach them all about the defensive aspect of the game. Players with a modicum of intelligence, good athleticism, a strong desire to win and precious little in technical and tactical expertise can easily become useful defensively. But what about offensive skills? These must be learned young or they will never be learned, therefore you must be the one to teach them. Are you a neophyte to soccer? This book will teach you all technical and tactical aspects necessary to develop skilful players. Will they be intelligent and creative? Your job is to lay the groundwork to promote creativity and, if you have players who are open-minded, they will enjoy their freedom and profit from it to be as creative and as impactful as they can possibly be. The end result will be a team that plays an intelligent and esthetically pleasing game and one that does not require cheating and gamesmanship in order to win.

On The Fence from the Author: Kasie West. She's a tomboy. He's the boy next door. With three older brothers, Charlotte Reynolds, aka Charlie, has always been more comfortable calling the shots on a basketball court than flirting with the opposite sex. So when her police officer dad demands she get a summer job to pay for the latest in a long line of speeding tickets, she's more than a little surprised to find herself working at a chichi boutique and going out with a boy who has never seen her tear it up in a pickup game. Charlie seeks late-night refuge in her backyard, talking out her problems with her neighbor and honorary fourth brother, Braden, sitting back-to-back against the fence that separates them. Braden may know her better than anyone. But there's a secret Charlie's keeping that even he hasn't figured out—she's fallen for him. Hard. She knows what it means to go for the win, but if spilling her secret means losing him for good, the stakes just got too high. On the Fence is a sweet and satisfying read about finding yourself and finding love where you least expect it.

This book offers the perfect opportunity to catch up on soccer's rich historyand to discover some of the funniest, most ironic, outlandish, and tragic stories ever to come out of the world of sports. Taking readers as far afield as the Faeroe Islands, Thailand, Madagascar, Belarus, Bhutan, and the North Pole, the selections inSoccer Storiesrange from the strange (Brazilian players paid in cattle by their cash-strapped club) to the wild (the Mexican prison warden who threw open all the cell doors in celebration of a World Cup victory) to the comical (the referee who ejected himself). Here is the plane crash that wiped out the Italian team on the eve of its fifth straight national championship; the spiteful African club that scored 149 goals against itself in one game; and the youngster who banked a shot into the goal off a passing seagull. As lively as it is informative,Soccer Storieswill engage fans of all levels.
