Understandable frog -- Just nothing left here worthy of any response ... sorry lil' buddy.

You gotta play this game with fear and ignorance.

Not trying to poke any bear or stir the pot, but how many U11, 12, 13, 14, etc girls actually wanna get up on any given Saturday or Sunday and go out an watch games they are not playing in? I'm sure there are a few, but even those who passionately love the game are still kids. Heck, a few years ago we were at a Texan USWNT World Cup watching party at a pizza place. Most eyes were on phones, engulfed in visiting running around the joint...and offered an occasional glance at the game. Most certainty could not tell you who the starting line up was, who subbed in and out etc.

Again, not being critical, just don't hear too many parents stating they have to drag their kids away from watching NBCSN/Fox Soccer Plus, BeIN sports etc.

This makes me sad......ern could start a carpool and take everyone to the mall after....maybe that would get the kids more interested? They only have a few years left before the DA kids can't socialize with their friends anymore.

Very legitimate point RightWinger and you are certainly among the majority of those that post here when it comes to your sentiment.  I'll grant you that it isn't an easy concept to grasp as 90+% of the kids still participating in the sport at those ages certainly would much rather make a 'Musicly' (sp?) video post than watch (live or TV) any sport they may play ... which, in my opinion, is an unfortunate byproduct of the way some of us are raising the next generation.  

However, my mentioning that it would be a good thing for 'U11-U14 etc' kids getting out to watch a game was absolutely spot on ... any other coach would tell you or your kid the same.  Those kiddos that do get out to watch the 'next level' just because they want to, whether it be older kids or just a higher quality of game, are those that have real passion for the sport plus a unique drive to achieve their goals (and likely will).  

BTW ... you'd find that kids would spend less time on their phones while watching kids their own age in person than while watching the USWNT on TV -- more relatable.

I do agree with you though. My kid loves watching soccer with daddy, especially when it's time for bed ;-) Can't complain too much though, she does spend a good bit of time outside juggling the ball and smacking the side of the house with the ball. Oh my poor gutter downspout...meet soccer ball.

This whole thread is weird, but I come down on soccerjack's side... how really sad and limited and distorted things can can get when monomaniacal focus gets pushed down on the innocents...it's never to late to pull back and re-evaluate and get back to the important things that matter with our precious daughters in the long run......probably wasting my breath .......sad

Dear Ern....

While at soccer games this weekend I noticed two soccer moms in high heels and short skirts checking me out. As they caught my eye they motioned for me to come over....wait a minute, I got my soccer advice column confused with my other forum.
