I have heard of a team at that age doing it for conditioning and then some. At what point does it go overboard?

It's all relative based on what your expectations (or limitations) are of 9 year olds. Everyone is different.
The point of going overboard is reached when that player does not enjoy it anymore. You can't know what that is unless you push them to that point.

So pushing them to that point accomplishes what?

So pushing them to that point accomplishes what?

Speed, power, physical prowess, toughness, strong work ethic, confidence.

That being said, it's probably not the best use of soccer practice time.

You do not have to push them to the point of burnout and overuse injuries to get there.

I am all for teaching kids to push themselves but it should be done in a safe and healthy manner.
