Barry University Head Coach Steve McCrath is a 4x Sunshine State Conference Coach of the Year and 2x South Region Coach of the Year.  He shows you how the 3-5-2 system can cause problems for opponents, as it is seldom used and can quickly overload specific areas of the pitch. Also, Coach McCrath has assembled drills and small-sided games that, when coached properly, will help you squeeze more goals out of your season by catching your opponent off guard. See high quality Soccer DVDs that will have your team performing better on the pitch.
