I received this order really fast and other than some of the audio out of sync on some places everything else was good

If you are looking for a video where the instructors do way more talking than instructing, this video is for you. Even the young players in the video look bored. Every so often a ball gets kicked, but there’s to much time in-between. Bad purchase.

If new to the game, not a bad buy. Coached/Played for 1-2 years, look for something else. If I had a friend with a daughter JUST starting soccer who was also going to coach, I would let them borrow this set to get them started.

The videos are very basic, and more geared for a young player to watch, rather than a coach or more experienced player. About 25% of the video is Mia answering “hamm” questions from the youth demonstrators. If nothing else, the videos might motivate a young player to learn more about the basic techniques from better videos.

The most useful part of the videos is a set of simple drills to teach young players how to head the ball correctly. My daughter got more out of this section than anything else. I actually think this was very well done and is a great drill for overcoming the fear of heading the ball.

There is only a few minutes spent on goalkeeping – look for something else if you have a keeper.

There are very few close-ups of the drills/techniques and little to no emphasis on how to drill/coach through bad habits. All the skills/drills are for a single player or player with partner. The videos skim over foundational footwork, and does nothing more than show the player basic technique found in most other beginner videos.

These instructive DVD’s forgot to put in the instruction. Sure Mia and other members of the women team know how to play, but after watching the video’s I can honestly say they cant coach. Don’t waste your time or money on these DVD’s. My 11 year old daughter even thought they were boring.

If I hadn’t gotten these DVDs for free, I would have been _really_ disappointed. As a previous reviewer stated, even the “advanced” DVD was pretty basic, and the things that are taught don’t have a lot of detail – just a few demonstrations. I’d definitely recommend a decent Coerver class over these DVDs.

In addition, all of the “extras” on the DVDs are the same on all three. I also got tired of the sappy planted questions from the girl demonstration teams.

If your kid is a Mia Hamm fanatic, and just likes to hear her talk, this is fine, but don’t expect a lot of exciting Mia Hamm demonstrations, or a great learning experience/inspiration.
