Moving into the upper leagues requires an entirely different mindset than rec soccer. It's all about developing the player, and that is done in the training sessions. The tournaments and games are for winning, and that means that not everyone will get to play every game.

If a team isn't winning games then no one will want to be on the team, so the coach must put winning first.

Average players can become good players with proper training, but it may mean sitting the bench during many games.

If you or your child isn't willing to work hard, go to every practice, work on skills at home, and still see only limited playing time, then select soccer may not be for you. But it's the only way to determine just how good of a soccer player your child can become.

Most of the select players are average and rec players are terrible.. Rec players get mandatory minutes.. There are only a few select players on each team that areusually that much better the rest are about the same and there playing time is usually determined by the political system of coaches and parents!! Bigger clubs are different because there are a lot better players to choose from.

Sky soccer has its ups and downs but they can't try and win at all cost like other big clubs!! It doesn't work here.. Never has never will.. And they are starting to flirt with it again!! They usually don't believe you until about 1/3 of the girls don't come back!!
