About Soccer Coaching Notes

Bruce Brownlee's Soccer Coaching Notes began as a youth soccer coaching notebook in 1991. Articles and handouts from notebooks and other coaching web sites by the same author were collected together into an online notebook that could be accessed from home or office in 1997. This site was built just for fun starting in 1997 at a popular soccer club site, and moved to BruceBrownlee.com location in 1999. Lots of other miscellaneous content wass been added over time, mostly through posting of questions answered for coaches who wrote in for assistance.

The site content was moved to SoccerCoachingNotes.com on 22 September 2008, the first full day of Autumn.
