Something to Think About

What is a big challenge facing youth soccer in America?

Coaching is important, but in many cases our players get “over-coached” and they lose the ability to be free and creative and make their own decisions on the field. I often come to soccer fields in the US and it feels like you are in a library — no players are talking and the only one you hear is the coach — that is a problem.
