Every soccer season there is a waiting line for soccer families to pay to play for a pre academy club/team. Why do these families rush to pay to play for a soccer pre academy team for their 7, 8, 9 year or even 10 olds? Facts show that a majority of these players will stop playing by the time they are 13 or 14 or just get faded out of the pre academy team because other better players are coming into the team getting more playing time and causing the original play to lose confidence and possibly eventually get cut. WHat happens to the financial investment the family has made till then? They will most likely move to another pre academy system and start the process all over again. They will claim they can not go back into a club enviroment because their player is used to playing at a higher level with better structure or coaches. While that maybe true, there are also a lot of club teams that have just as good structured enviroment and just as good qualified coaches.
So, why can they not be happy with playing for their local club teams or other inexpensive soccer clubs like #SOCCERSKILLZ?
