thank you for advise. my son is getting better and gets some invitations. but he is not interested in playing for any academy (competitive game) yet. so just wanted to know if I should push him or wait till he gets older.

If the team likes to play kick and run....run away...team will go nowhere and your child will not develop especially in higher divisions (regardless of field size).....dominant style of play is more ball movement and less running. (If you like to run cross country and track should be your thing) Brains will always beat braun.

Depends on the team's style though. It can also be physically exhausting to run the full field, especially for box to box players.
