Looking For The Perfect Soccer-Themed Holiday Gift?

Dan Woog’s book — We Kick Balls: True Stories From the Youth Soccer Wars — is perfect for any soccer player. Or soccer player’s parents, siblings and friends.

The Staples head coach’s look back at his years in youth soccer has been called “funny, warm, courageous and edifying.” It ricochets from the World Cup to Dachau, from race and religion to 9/11. Because teenagers are involved, there’s some crazy stuff going on. Somehow, soccer connects them all.

Dan says, “There’s more to life than soccer. And there’s more to soccer than soccer.” We Kick Balls is a book about kids, life, and everything that happens to all of us, on and off the field.
