“The design previously was so that they could play with their classmates, play with their friends from school,”
The most recent stats I can find from US Youth Soccer, states that they have 3,055,148 registered players. The USSF has approximately 350 on the national teams. That would include male & female players on MNT, WNT, U23, U20, U18, U17, U15 & U14 NDP. 350 players. This means that USSF has rearranged the structure for 3 million plus customers, in order to find 1 in 10,000....or if you prefer 11 in 100,000. Never mind that their claimed reasoning is utter hogwash. Moving the date from school year to calendar does not help them find that 1 in 10,000 player in any way, shape or form. There is only one way to find that player, that is to go to games and watch the players. When you are that 1 in 10,000 player, it does not matter when you were born, where you were born, what time you were born, or any other variable you to care to apply to the act of being born. You either are that player because you are naturally talented and extremely hard working....or you are not. If you follow the USSF's line of reasoning, then people born on Christmas Day would be more likely to grow up to be Santa Claus.
