Here's the background. My '09 son is in his 3rd year at his club. Really like the coaches and love the location (practices/home games 5 minutes from my front door). This is extremely helpful as he also plays football in the fall and baseball in the spring and this allows him to get to multiple events on the same day, if need be. He joined them when they started up, so they're fairly new and the player quality varies pretty wildly from age group to age group. With all the caveats of him being young and how things change over the years, he's a kid with a really high "sports IQ". My and my wife's families are both very sports oriented and there's always a game on the TV or people playing catch/shooting hoops, etc at family gatherings. He watches a ton of college/pro sports and works on things by himself all the time. His team is one of the weaker ones in his club and last spring and this fall are wearing on him. Not the losses so much, but things like kids not being able to control a pass or not moving into space. For whatever reason, there are some kids on his team that just don't seem to be improving. He's getting steadily more frustrated each week and, for the first time yesterday, said he wants to play on a better team. Even mentioned that it wasn't fun right now, which is what made me pause. The bigger clubs by us aren't really feasible at this point because the time commitment (including drive) would probably preclude playing other sports, and he does not want to give that up. At some point he will have to cut back on a sport or two but we're trying to push that date as far into the future as possible. Any suggestions on how to keep him engaged and happy in this situation?
