[/QUOTE] I'm seeing club baseball, basketball (primarily AAU) and lacrosse grow by me. Main difference from soccer is that they don't really start up before 4th grade and kids generally don't move into it until 5th/6th grade. Same cost structure and commitment as club soccer. Perhaps we'd be better served if club soccer had a similar timeline rather than tryouts and team placements in 1st/2nd grade. I don't see that happening, though. The perception that you "need" professional coaching in soccer from the earliest ages isn't going to be broken anytime soon.
