"It's amazing to me that people put so much emphasis on trying to be tactical and worry about winning when it doesn't matter, when you're 12 years old.  It's sad.  That's something that's going to have to change it we want soccer in this country to develop." -L. Donovan

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."
