This attempts to provide an insight into how players are coached in Italy from the moment they first join a soccer club through to their participation in a major championship at the Under-21 level. Hopefully, the ideas it contains will also be stimulation and useful for coaches at amateur and grass-roots level, whether they are qualified coaches, school teachers with a passion for the game or parents who are lending a helping hand. It includes nearly 50 easy-to-follow coaching drills, from basic passing and receiving exercises through to complex attacking moves. These are not theoretical "blackboard" exercises but are drawn from actual coaching sessions and are explained by the coaches themselves.
