I've known Tom Byer for 25 years and over those years we've talked a lot of football. In that time, he's focused his coaching skills on children and reached the point where he is, without any doubt, one of the world's leading thinkers on teaching children the technical skills of football. This book should be bought by every parent in Britain, Canada and the United States – countries where I've had involvement with football – and beyond to understand what a child who likes football can learn and how they can learn. It's not a textbook; it's a guide. It's a philosophy that is so basic and so true it's just amazing that it's taking so long to be recognized. Many people in football still don't get it.
I've been involved in football as a player and coach for over 40 years, so trust me when I tell you that this book is gold dust for your kids.
Ex-England international (35 caps)
UEFA Cup winner (1981)
F.A. Cup winner (1978)
Tom Byer was born in the Bronx and grew up in New York State where he was a standout player for Rondout Valley High School. He attended Ulster County Community College before joining the University of South Florida. He became the first American to play top-level football in Japan when he was signed by J.S.L team Hitachi. After a short playing career, he moved into coaching, concentrating on technical development and introducing Coerver Schools into Japan. Tom has spent over 20 years conducting clinics for kids, coaches and parents. Also, Tom has had his own spot on national TV in Japan for nearly 15 years and his instructional DVDs have been No. 1 sellers on Amazon Japan. His success has also taken him to other parts of Asia, notably Indonesia and China, and he is now an Official Advisor to the Chinese Ministry of Education's School Football Program, supervising the training and coaching of grassroots football at 20,000 schools across China. From 2016, he will also have a daily slot on CETV in China. Tom has been sponsored by major companies such as Nestle, adidas, Canon, Disney and Volkswagen. In 1997, Tom was recognized by adidas International for his outstanding contribution to grassroots development at a ceremony in Marseille, France.
Technical development truly does start at home and I'm patiently counting down for when my LO starts to walk and when I can get a ball onto his feet.
