Over the years we’ve published a number of detailed and informative articles about youth soccer for coaches, team managers, and parents. As we approach 1000 articles on our site, it can be hard to find them all. So we’ve started this page to collect the ones we think are the most useful. If you come across other articles on our site that aren’t listed here, leave a comment with a link to the story and we’ll review it for inclusion here. If there are topics you’d like to see here that we’ve never covered at OTP, let us know that too. If this page is popular enough, we may start a more in depth guide that includes links to external reference information on other websites. Feel free to leave links to those in the comments as well.
