I honestly believe that Coach Doug's method of coaching U4 and U6 soccer players (ages 3, 4, 5 and 6) is the best in the world. That is a big statement, but when you try it, you can judge for yourself. Coach Doug is the coach we all aspire to be and his tips are the best I've ever seen for U-4 and U-6. His program is based on fun and skill development. You won't believe how good his 4 year olds are in the Video Clips.
You don't need to know anything about soccer to use the Coach Doug method - he shows you what you need to know in simple terms. Mostly, all you need to do is play his Practice Games and have fun. Coaches have successfully used the Coach Doug Method whose soccer experience ranged from zero to having played college soccer. Coach Doug takes away the worries and makes coaching easy and fun - you will have the most fun using the Coach Doug Method that you have ever had coaching. And you will also get the best results. Your team will be the envy of others and you will be a successful, popular and happy coach. If you want to see Coach Doug in action, watch his Video Clips.

"I have to give credit to Coach Doug's DVD. It keeps the practices fun and entertaining, and we've only played about 6 or 7 of the Practice Games so far, so there are a lot more we can play. The main thing I have taught so far is "puppy on a leash" and monster kicks with correct form. Our second game was incredible. I wish you could have seen those little kids play. I haven't had one kid reach down and grab the ball with their hands where both teams we've played have had it happen to them. We also haven't had one kid score on our own goal. They know to turn the ball around and go in the right direction. So well, in fact, that I have only played the turn around game 1 time because they already know to do it. At first I thought the patches were just a gimmick, but after using them for a week and a half I can definitely see how and why they are important. The patches have gotten 1 kid to never use his hands (he used them all the time the first practice), gotten one kid to keep playing after he got hit in the stomach, and gotten one kid to play even though he didn't want to because he was too cold, and another to practice when he was scared to play. That last kid held the patch in his hand the entire practice. Now my son asks for patches for doing stuff around the house. ("Dad, I just picked up my toys, can I get a badge?") They are awesome. My son had to sit out this past game because he was sick and when I got home he asked me if everyone got a patch. He was disappointed that he wasn't able to get one for this game. Man, I could type about this for hours but in short: everything you recommend is great. I wish I could sing your praises from the mountaintops so that more people would buy your stuff. I'm 30 and I haven't played soccer since I was 12 and this is my first time to coach, but I feel like a master coach with these kids. The parents believe in me and you can see it in their faces. If we keep improving at this rate then next year we may have to move up a level. I'll send you a pic of our team when I can. Some of our smallest, youngest kids are our best players. Take care!" -Tommy, U6 coach, TX
"Thank you for such a great site!! I've already started implementing the great ideas in my practices, and they are 110% better!!!!" -Olivia, TX
"First and foremost I want to thank you for all the information provided on SoccerHelp and a special thanks to Coach Doug. I have been coaching a rec league now for about 2 1/2 yrs. I started out with 3-5 Year olds with my Daughters team and then added 6-8 yr olds my next year when some of my kids moved up and I am now coaching 9-12 yr olds. With the practice games and information provided on SoccerHelp, I have managed to create an incredible atmosphere for my young players to really enjoy the game of soccer at the same time having almost every coach in the league stopping by once or twice a season to watch how I run my practices. When I get new additions to my teams I always take the ones that need the most work or the youngest of the group. By the time our first game is here we are a team that is unbeatable. Anyways I could go on for hours with this type of praise that the site has." - Coach Gregg GA, 3-5, 6-8, 9-12, Premium Member for 2 years
"I have used the soccer patches the last two seasons and this season as well with my U6 team. Everything the coaches have said in the testimonials are true. The patches and Coach Doug's practice games are the reason I am seeing great results on my team." - Richard, posted on Facebook
"I am coaching my 5 year old daughter this year for the first time and this stuff is absolutely priceless." -Clint, KS
"Best $20 bucks I have ever spent on soccer. I just wanted to thank you for your video. I have been 4 weeks into soccer season when I came up on your site. I used your techniques and the kids loved it. Thanks again."Coach Ben (he bought the Coach Doug Streaming Video)
I just read from Coach Doug's site "How to Prepare for Your First Game". Brilliant!!! So "right on".... Obvious good common sense stuff, but common sense is NOT common, of course. I am going to encourage our league directors to recommend SoccerHelp and Coach Doug. From the top down the philosophy must be Development AND Fun AND Sportsmanship. I am grateful I found you guys! I am an experienced player, but I never coached little kids before. -Brian, U4 coach, Coach Doug Member, Premium Member, Coach Doug Streaming Video
