"We Kick Balls: True Stories from the Youth Soccer Wars" by Dan Woog, chronicles over three decades of Woog's experiences coaching youth and high school soccer.

From the crazy kids to their neurotic parents, the World Cup to 9/11, Woog has pretty much seen it all. He's taken teams around the world, been to Pele's house and appeared in a soccer film. He's seen the evolution of life in teenagers, and painful conclusions that untimely deaths bring. Woog has taught his players about character, life, race and religion, relationships and common sense. And a long the way, he's learned a few things too. The final chapter covers Woog's own experience coming out as a gay man, a defining point in his career.

Simply put, "We Kick Balls" is a book about life, and the way that soccer ties it all together.

Based in Westport, Conn., Woog is a soccer coach, writer and educator. He has won state championships, been named a national Coach of the year and inducted into the Connecticut Soccer Hall of Fame. A graduate of Brown University, Woog has written thousands of newspaper and magazine articles, authored 16 books and appeared on "The Daily Show with Jon Stewart."

196 pages. Published in 2012.

Soccer was first played as an official Olympic competition in 1908. Great Britain won the Gold that year. In the early years of of the game, American soccer was dominated by teams from New England, particularly Fall River, New Bedford and Pawtucket. The Houston Dynamo edged the New England Revolution in the MLS Cup in both 2006 and 2007. London's new Wembley Stadium, which opened in 2007, has a seating capacity of 90,000.
