Dr. Ratey opened up my eyes to the neuroscience behind “Soccer Starts at Home” which has given me a much deeper understanding of what’s happening between a young child and their parent and the impact of setting up an emotional environment conducive to developing a child in many different ways. This has enabled me to help young soccer parents in many ways — not just with their kids when they are on the soccer field, but in life as well.
Finally had Tom Byer in studio to talk about Soccer Starts at Home. “NOT ONLY IS IT A REVOLUTION, IT IS A REVELATION — TOM’S BELIEF THAT IN ORDER TO IMPROVE A CLASS OR TEAM, YOU MUST RAISE THE LOWER LEVEL RATHER THAN DEVELOP THE HIGH ACHIEVERS IS WISDOM I NEVER EXPECTED TO FIND IN A BOOK ABOUT SOCCER,” said Professor John J.

occer Expert Tom Byer on Why It Is Important For Parents To Help Kids Soccer Starts At Home At An Early Age With Parents — this is the new mantra for success, pioneered by Tom Byer. Gone are the days when parents drop kids off at a youth soccer practice or tryout and leave it all up to the coach. Here is youth soccer expert Tom Byer on giving your soccer player an edge — and the truth about why parents can help player development. Tom Byer is a highly respected youth soccer player development expert. Byer has conducted over 2000 events for more than 500,000 youth soccer players — in the USA, Japan and all over the world. Born in the USA, Byer has developed soccer players in Japan for over 30 years — in fact, ever since he hung up his professional cleats after playing in the Professional J League which is now Japan’s MLS equivalent. Byer is also known for his best selling book, Soccer Starts at Home. Byer became a technical skills coach and is known as Tom-san in Japan. Many of Japan’s men’s and women’s national team players have benefited from his training and grew up attending his soccer schools, watching him on TV, and reading his books. In high demand, Byer has consulted with many of the leading Football organizations across the world, including FIFA, UEFA, AFC, DFB, the FA as well as the English Premier League, the Australian FA, Japanese FA plus Manchester United, Tottenham Hotspur, AS Roma and MLS’ Houston Dynamo. Parents Can Make a Big Difference In America, parents often send their kids off to their first time at sports … with little experience, preparation or any preliminary training — something they would never do when it comes to school. Who would send their kid to school without a clue? Hand-eye coordination is developed from a very early age and while most parents play catch with their 2 and 3-year-olds to teach basic motor skills, simple foot skills and ball mastery is usually overlooked.
Episode 217: “I’m Only Responsible for What I Say, Not What You Understand.” A Good Reminder from Tom Byer.
This episode of the podcast is a conversation with Tom Byer. Instead of writing one of my normal introductions, I am going to read you part of the foreward to Tom’s book Football Starts at Home. The foreward is written by Professor John J. Ratey, M.D., Associate Clinical Professor of Psychiatry Harvard Medical School. He says: Can you teach football skills to a 2-year-old? Tom decided to find out with his own two sons. He documented and videoed their progress and using this practical experience helped to develop Tom’s philosophy, which was previously based on his countless hours of coaching other people’s children with more traditional methods. This book makes Tom’s philosophy available to all parents in a simple and straightforward way. It also reaches into cutting edge child development theory which explains the benefits of utilizing Tom’s methodology to not just improve technical football skills but also to assist in the development of a young child’s brain. This book explains how you can teach very young children the skills required to be a football player in a fun and self-motivating way – and anybody can do it. You don’t need to be a professional coach like Tom; you just need to be a parent. Tom has been on the podcast before. He and I talked about his mission to educate people, parents specifically, that fundamental skills can and should be taught at a much earlier age than we think. This new conversation provides an update on what Tom has been doing, including releasing the second edition of his book. Our first recorded conversation.
