The Art and Science of Youth Sports Coaching: 

"The needs of the child (while playing soccer) 
should be placed above the needs, convenience 
and self-interest of the adults/coaches.  True (youth) player development focuses on the development 
of the player, not the development of the team!  
Up to age 12, this should be the only criteria used
 in designing and running (youth) programs."
