Default 70 to 75 % of players leave soccer by age 13 in the USA

We often thought the teams would be successful if the coach would just shut up. Those coaches had few if any recruits going off to college, and that was both club and HS. On the flip side, our girls had a lot of success in club. Their coaches tended to stay quiet through most of game, though would instruct in some situations, and offer kudos when things were done right, and were generally positive when the girls left the field. experiences with HS were not as positive, but i think you have less control over who coaches them in that situation, and they either can rise above coaches remarks, or they chose to not play HS.

So if those other sports have more pressurized instruction yet have lower attrition rates, then what's the issue with soccer?

My theory involves RUNNING. America does not have a running or fit culture. Soccer involves running a lot after U13.

Football and basketball will draw the boys away in HS. My son stayed with basketball/football because everybody goes to those games to watch/cheer and only parents go to soccer games, he wants the spotlight. Look at attendance to college soccer games, dreadful. You play soccer at higher levels because you love the game, not for the peanut scholarships or excited fans.

Haha, take your soccer kids to a true high level football or basketball program and they will learn about running.

I played Div 1 college football and semi pro soccer. Soccer by far required more running. Football was a joke in comparison.

My theory involves JUICE BOXES AND TROPHIES. Once get to about the u13 year and find out it's not juice boxes and trophies for everybody, they bail.
