Pay attention to your gut when selecting a team in June!

Was the child lured? Or was the child and parent lured?
You're the one who signed the contract, right?
I switched my BB from a team that was good, but He got fewer and fewer touches. But to be fair, some of his teammates were just better players at those positions.
I signed the contract, not my BB.
The team he's on now is just as good, the training's not.
Passion and great love doesn't equate to talent and skill.
Unless your BB's making the decisions for you, then you were the one who took the bait.
Live and learn.

Nah I can't take credit, it was his decision...and now it is his decision to leave....

Talent and skill are there but we are through buying in to the "higher level" sales pitch.

i've been fortunate with my BB always being among the best on his team but at u11 he was only getting about 50% of the playing. just preached practice harder and you can earn more playing. that didn't happen for another year or so. in the meantime he just continued to love practices and kick arounds etc. MY SON HAS NEVER MADE A DECISION ABOUT WHICH TEAM HE PLAYED FOR. HE HAS ALWAYS UNDERSTOOD I HAD HIS BEST INTEREST AT HEART AND BELIEVED IN ME. I MAY HAVE EVEN BEEN WRONG ONCE Smile BUT IT WASN'T THE END OF THE WORLD!. now i must admit i never bought any "pie in the sky" that so many parents complain about.

I would definitely search for playing time with a team that plays against the most competitive teams that my BB is capable of playing against.

It's better to have a steady diet of competitive playing time than to be a member of a top 5 team that doesn't play you at least 30 minutes per game.

I always want to give this advice to parents with excellent players who are languishing on the bench just because they believe that it's better to make a top 5 than to play on a lower ranked team which is kind of funny when you consider that most of the lower ranked teams in each division are 2-3 players (sometimes more than that) short of being a higher ranked team.

I can say that D1 has quite a few players who are warming the bench that would be better off getting maximum playing time on a 9,10 team or in D2 so they can develop and realize their potential.

There are top 5 teams with players who should move to other top 5 teams for that same reason.

No matter what division or league you play in, this idea applies because it is player based and not team based.

Lol. At BB's age of 14 I decided to move to DLlas from West Texas. Yes! After giving all the clubs my sales pitch, I weighed my options. I chose texans based on their need for a midfielder like my son. Solars midfielder had that position locked up and is currently traveling with U15 YNT. Hassans nice facilities are located 8 miles from where I wanted to live and we have enjoyed the ride. The team we joined was a good team and my son has helped make them better. I will be looking to invite some new talent to the FREE U15 Pre-Academy next month. My BB will probably play PA, DA and High School next year. Smile

I thought DA players were contractually bound to not play high school. Did that change?

If the BB is a fulltime U16 or U18 DA player you are correct. MY BB is likely to play U15 PA and be what DA calls a "developmental" player. He could play Highschool but only play 6 DA games with academy. Smile

I think it is a maximum of 4 games not 6 for DP.
