I've had this question running around in my head for awhile. On the one hand, it's well known that in the U.S. our kids generally don't get nearly as much playing time as kids in other parts of the world. Reasons for this are diverse, but think the biggest reason is just that soccer isn't often the schoolyard or park sport of choice for pickup games. So in order to make up for this, many parents have their kids practicing as much as possible with their clubs. And the parents, paying good money, expect the kids to be coached while with their clubs. I've heard complaints that this results in over-coached players, a lack of creativity, burnout, and overuse injuries. And now the soccer tourism + club industry is so big that a player in many areas of the country can play 12 months a year, 4 evenings a week, and several games on the weekends. A lot of parents will encourage their kids to do other sports, to varying degrees, in order to give their kids some balance. And I've heard everything from, "yeah, I only allow my player to play club in fall and spring and make sure the player does other things in winter and summer" to "the player plays 12 months a year because he needs touches to compete with Europeans." And now with the pandemic changing the last year for many, where do you find balance, both for you and how you help your players find balance?
