I'm going to keep my Little Rooney close to home and have him play with the local clubs

I think you meant to write "whilst addressing me."

The age group you boast about are 10. Think about it 10. Such a fool. Their are some kids just kicking around the ball who by 12-13 will be better then your little superstars who just have the upper hand now because they started playing at an earlier age.

Let me ask you this. Do you think your kids are any more special then parents who were saying the same nonsense about their kids 8-9 years ago at 10.
Can you identify all these superstars who are now 18-20 and which big club in Europe their playing for now.


You should know u canít talk sense to the crazies

DA caliber can be Cosmos quality or MLS DA quality. Big difference.

Most times it's the parents' dream that is being pursued.

I donít see anyone freaking out. Whatís the problem with saying a kid is talented? The MLS DAís and USSF donít seem to have a problem with it since thatís the age when the DA starts. The rest of the world doesnít seem to have a problem with it since itís common practice for major clubs to sign players to their academies at this age. I donít see these major organizations saying that being talented at a young age is meaningless. In fact, one of the most well known talent scouts in Europe was quoted as saying ď if a player doesnít have the technical ability by the time heís 10, heíll never have itĒ.

We're not Europe. That's the first thing US parents need to get through their thick skulls. Also, many players have been successful entering DA well past U12 and many are successful outside the DA system. Too many buy into the hype that you have to be in X league by Y age or that's it, your kid's career is over. Stick with a club you can afford that has the best coaching within a reasonable distance from your house. Don't get caught up in leagues and badges for 11 year olds. Encourage your kid to work on their own, play pickup games as much as possible. Having the drive to do that will be a bigger predictor of their success than anything else. See where he takes it and where he's at 13-14. If parents are as happy with Barca training as they claim, why worry about moving young kids at such an early age, especially if the commute will be terrible OR (more importantly) possibly worse coaching? Chasing the next best thing is one of the biggest problems with youth soccer in the US
