The Canadian Soccer Association is proud to offer to the soccer community two new educational booklets: Laws of the Game Made Easy and First Steps, First Kicks Coaching 6-10 year olds. Both are now available in English and French and are designed for coaches, players, referees and parents who are involved in the development of the game below the age of 12. The CSA recognizes the ever increasing need for improved services to the players, coaches, and referees at this level as it makes up close to 64 % of our membership.
