You're kidding right? My daughter is in club for the competition. If her grades fall, she will be out of club soccer. I don't need some high school coach to tell her that. That is my job as a parent. In addition, the club coaches also check on the kids grades, and if they are failing they won't play. How can learning to balance school, club soccer, and other school and personal tasks not make her a better student athlete? You seem to really dislike club soccer for some reason. Like anything in life, what you put in directly equates to what you get out.
