Jeff Tipping has been a coach at every level and is best known for his time in the collegiate game, which included three NCAA Final Four appearances and eight conference championships over 21 years.  All of this culminated in a position with the National Soccer Coaches Association of America (NSCAA), where he led the organization as Director of Coach Education for 13 years. 

Tipping’s credentials include both a UEFA “A” license and a U.S. Soccer “A” license in addition to being an NSCAA Master Coach.  Tipping also possesses the English FA Tutor’s Certificate and was the recipient of the FIFA Futuro Award, an honor reserved for only the best in the world. 

Forward

For years now I have recognized the fact that my nephew’s enormous knowledge about American soccer needed to be documented. When he asked me to write the forward to his book I breathed a sigh of relief. At last he was getting something down in writing after years of badgering by me and other family members. The growth of the game in the USA, since I coached there in the 1960’s, has been impressive. Continued growth will require sophisticated coaching. The teaching chapters in this book focus on sessions and exercises which address the issues specific to American players. It is a book for coaches at every level but, especially, coaches of players aged u’9 – u’14. This is a vitally important age when players are, without even knowing it, making decisions on which sport they will choose to play. In addition, it is an age when distinctive athletic habits are formed. Jeff’s book addresses the needs of players from a unique sports culture – a culture very different than anywhere else in the world.
