https://www.socceramerica.com/publi...ldhood-soccer-of-crystal-dunn-an-environ.html There is a lot to be said for the development model that previously existed but there is also a lot against it being "best." I believe that if soccer is allowed to be fun and good skills taught many of the best players will develop and rise to the top. However I have seen many cases where a player with real potential gets lost in the system due to the coach's favoritism and/or biases. Dunn seems to have avoided that problem but I still wonder how many of the best get overlooked. I think the problem is worse on the boy's men's side than it is on the girl's women's but it can be seen on both.
