Default Playing time guidelines?

Is there any guidance from US Soccer or elsewhere on playing time guidelines for U13+?

Only for DA. Even then guidelines are just that. Starting at that age players should be getting meaningful PT but not necessarily equal PT. PT starts to be earned, fought for, but no one should be sitting all game either. .

If your kid is good enough he/she will play, it’s really that simple.

If your kid is good enough to make the team, they should get meaningful minutes.

Your kid may be good enough to make the team, but depending on age group talent/ability/performance plays a role in how much time any kid plays.Anywhere in club soccer.

Define “good enough”, in youth soccer. Why else would anyone pay a soccer coach/club to sit on the bench and not play? That’s a waste of time and money. If your reason to join a soccer club is to “play “soccer, and develop skills. It’s that simple.

Should. Except a business that needs customers and parents paying money throws a monkey wrench into that idea.

Ok, here's the truth: I'm a volunteer youth soccer club administrator writing up some policies to help our coaches, and looking to include best practice where possible. You got me.
