This groundbreaking e-magazine brings you and your team closer to the professionals – think of it as your golden ticket to the training grounds of the best clubs in the English Premier League.

Soccer Coach Weekly

Elite Soccer is designed to make your coaching life so much easier and allow you to focus more on the players. Imagine – more goals from set-pieces and more clean sheets per season, but that's not all. Elite Soccer will improve your coaching in many different ways:


You will learn loads of coaching tactics and training techniques used by the top teams with Elite Soccer. Over time you will be able to pick which suit the strengths of your team and how to target an opposition team's weaknesses.


If a player ever asks “why are we doing this?” at training you will be able to give them a clear answer and know what you are saying and coaching makes sense and is the best way to coach your players.


Sessions are so easy, it's like having the coach right there showing you what the players need to know and how to get the most out of each drill. Just think of it as having the world's most successful, most experienced coach as your assistant.!


These pro coaches have a lifetime of experience coaching many of the best soccer players in the World. You can be sure their coaching sessions will motivate and inspire your players. These sessions WILL benefit your team.


With Elite Soccer, you will always have a fresh, cutting-edge coaching session of one hour to motivate your players. They can be safely stored on your computer – or handheld Blackberries, iPhones, etc. That means no more scrambling around for old sessions, or trying to bluff your way through. You'll also get access to it through Apple's Newsstand if you have an iPAD or iPhone, so you can take it to the training ground. However you like to coach, Elite Soccer can help!


If you let players know that some of the top soccer stars in the world are training the same way, they will give that little bit more extra effort as they try to emulate their heroes. Not only are the drills exciting, interesting and cutting edge – these are the drills being currently used by many of your players' heroes! Players such as Cristiano Ronaldo at Real Madrid and Zlatan Ibrahimovic at Paris Saint-Germain will be doing these drills. So getting players to do what you say will be a lot easier.


Getting tactical ideas across to players can be a real struggle, but with Elite Soccer it is all clearly laid out for you to follow. You and your team's understanding will improve. With greater tactical understanding and organisation it is only a matter of time before you will see your team's success rate improve.

Soccer Coach Weekly

So how does Elite Soccer get access to such great coaches and managers?

It's simple really...

Elite Soccer is published in partnership with the League Managers Association (LMA) representing all professional soccer managers in the English leagues. They can give us access to the very best coaches and managers.

Each issue features at least one Premier League manager, other managers will be from the English Championship and leagues 1&2. These pros have a lifetime of experience at getting the most out of players and they will show you how to bring out the best in yours.

The training sessions are written by each manager in person and are laid out exactly as the top teams use them. They will improve and sharpen all areas of your team's performance. You will receive six complete, comprehensive training ground sessions in every monthly issue – covering goalkeeping, defence, midfield and attack in detail.

You can always improve

In this video, Everton manager Roberto Martinez tells you why he uses Elite Soccer in his sessions, and how all coaches should see it as an opportunity to improve their coaching. No matter how much experience you have, Elite Soccer offers a great way to keep your coaching fresh with help from the best.

Roberto also talks you through the thinking behind the session he wrote for Elite Soccer last year. It shows just how much time and effort the top pros invest in thinking about their sessions and how you will be able to apply them to your team.

Some of the top coaches in world soccer are offering to help your team – make sure you take them up on that offer today!

Soccer Coach Weekly

Complete coaching sessions of 1 hour

Each session is a comprehensive session of 1 hour – just like the pros themselves do. Remember, it's not the time spent training that counts... perfect practice makes perfect.

Sessions are challenging but can be easily adapted to the level of your team. Coaches of Under 9 teams have used it successfully. But in truth, these sessions will mostly benefit ambitious coaches of players aged 14+ at academies and clubs.

High definition illustrations

You get crystal clear illustrations that show you where your players need to be and precise instructions written by the manager so you know what to look out for and what to say during each session.

When relevant, the coaches highlight a specific example where the session has achieved a result in a professional game - to help you see the benefit of that session.

Make sure you keep up to date with new ideas

Steve Clarke recommends the drills and exercises in Elite Soccer as a way to inspire even the most experienced professional managers and as a must have for younger coaches. See what he has to say about his own Elite Soccer session and what he thinks of the magazine in the below video.

If you want to be the best you need to train like the best

That's the central idea behind Elite Soccer. Leading coaches from the English game are lending you their knowledge and experience. In the video below, former Portsmouth, Blackpool and Blackburn boss Michael Appleton tells you how coaches at all levels from grass roots up can use Elite Soccer with their teams.

Michael explains how professional coaches have you in mind when putting their sessions together. And how even those at the top level still want to find out what their peers are doing and borrow ideas from them.

Here's what LMA Chairman Howard Wilkinson has to say about Elite Soccer:

"Elite Soccer is the first time that we have harnessed the collective knowledge of our membership to create such a practical and insightful tool for coaches.

"I am particularly pleased that our members have taken the opportunity to get involved.

"All of the managers appearing in Elite Soccer have taken the time to write their session plan specifically for the magazine in order to give you the most rewarding experience as you recreate their session with your players."

Soccer Coach Weekly

Elite Soccer offers outstanding value for money – but don't take my word for it! Here are the views of some fellow coaches:

"I would just like to take this opportunity to thank you for all the drills in Elite Soccer over the past season. With a season lasting nine months, it is vital to come up with fresh ideas to keep the players interested and attendance high - your sessions have allowed me to do this and so we have managed to get ourselves a competitive edge over our opponents this season.

From a coaching point of view it has been very rewarding to see so many of our players reaching their potential through taking part in Elite Soccer sessions and taking these skills onto the pitch on match day.

We have matured in our play and there is a greater awareness of positional play, interplay and a greater all-round understanding of the game in general. Elite Soccer's drills have brought out a better application to training in the players and they have reaped the rewards.

We finished our season as champions and reached the AFA Senior Cup Final as a second division club which is a fine achievement. Our points record was the highest in the history of our club, which as a founder member of the football league is not bad going. Thank you to all at Elite Soccer for playing your part in our success this season."

- Mark Coleman, First Team Coach, Civil Service Football Club

"Elite Soccer has to be one of the best coaching resources available. Access to the current coaching trends at Premier League and League Level is normally something that money can't buy and I genuinely believe that as a customer I get more than excellent value for money. I would strongly recommend Elite Soccer."

- Stevie Baxter, Football Development Officer, Angus Council / Scottish FA

"I joined Elite Soccer because I wanted to see the sorts of sessions that coaches and managers in the professional game use in their own training sessions. I have aspirations myself of making it as a coach so I wanted to see the sort of standard I'd need to obtain. I think Elite Soccer provides a fascinating insight into how professionals within the game manage and run their sessions and for that it is invaluable. I love the fact that it covers all senior leagues and I like that the sessions are varied in each issue."

- Chris Gooch, Scout & Coach, West Bromwich Albion Development Centre

"After thirteen years in football coaching, Elite Soccer offered a refreshing change to my tried and tested drills. This benefited myself and my team as players started to enjoy sessions more. I would not hesitate in recommending Elite Soccer as a coaching advice magazine."

- Anthony Hollamby, Manager, Marden Minors

"As director of coaching for a large club my email box is stuffed with questions from our coaches. Elite Soccer is a great, fast source for ideas I can pass on. I appreciate the size and format of the publication - no fluff, right to the point and valuable information I can take to the training ground."

- Bob Akers, Director of Coaching, Brookside FC

“Last season the team I coach in Cyprus won the U13 championship with a record of 26 victories and no defeats. It was the first time that this has happened. We used many Elite Soccer drills which helped us to play better and create lots of opportunities. I enjoy all of your drills and would like to thank you for providing them.”

- Demetris Miltiadous, Apollon FC Limassol, Cyprus
