Looking for some feedback from people involved in clubs that try to serve soccer players of all levels (whether because the club is the only show in town or the primary club in relatively isolated area, like my son's club, or otherwise). Our club is starting to try to figure out what we should be (Emphasize competitiveness over providing a place for all to play? Have player cuts beyond a certain age if the alternative means fielding uncompetitive, very low-skill B teams or putting kids whose skills aren't suited to it on large-roster A teams to keep players on board? ...). I think the parents who've been around longer (five years or more) have a sense that the club has become less competitive in the name of offering more kids a place to play club soccer. And we don't cut anyone (though some kids at older ages may be steered toward being practice-only players). Do any of you come from clubs that try to be all things to all players, so to speak? If so, does it work, and how? Anyone here have kids who aren't DA types (or close to that skill level) who nonetheless play on clubs that cut players in areas where there aren't a bunch of alternative clubs to go to? There are a few smaller clubs near us, but the level drops off pretty severely. Any feedback appreciated.
