From the Paper:

"Children within the context of any sport need guidance and coaching to not only improve skills, but also make the most out of their time while playing the sport. Within the field of youth soccer, effective coaching methods are essential for the improvement of team skills and status, as well as the opening up of new methodologies for a child to learn new information. Children learn while practicing, this is sure. Yet, they use different methods of learning than seen within the context of a classroom. Coaching allows instructors to incorporate new styles of teaching techniques within each child's mind frame which may potentially lead to a heightened understanding of the learning process later in life. The soccer field provides a way of active training, where children observe, reflect, and then act. This is where more experimental learning styles can be tested by coaches and parents to see how well their child reacts to different methodologies of learning and gaining new experiences."
