Hey Everyone,

So majority opinion is pick a coach not a club, but does a young player with a good coach that fits them - but the team is not that talented or advanced, improve more or less, than if that player is on a team with more talented players and a more challenging level of play?

In short, does a good coach relationship - or being challenged by skilled / talented teammates - help a player improve more?

Interesting, with all the self proclaimed know-it-alls on here I expected a plethora of opinions on this by now.

It's a little of both but I would give a good coach more consideration. Most truly good coach also have good teams. At the same time it is important to have your child in a challenging environment. I was told that if you are the top player on the team then it is time to move up competitively.

I'm not sure I buy your comments of "good coach but team is not very talented or advanced". A good coach who has worked with a team for a couple of years should be able to develop these players to be "talented or advanced"

I can see you are right over the long run, but we have seen more than once that a coach we feel is doing better for his kids had considerable less talent depth than a fellow coach at the same club and age division due to winning more, perception, or whatever. So, we always wonder, is it better to get the solid coaching or go against the competition weekly.

1. Coach
2. Culture (created by coach)
3. Players (attracted by the culture and the coach)

The problem is it's the same recipe for a high level coach that actually teaches the game and skills and a rec level coach that charges the same price to keep your kid involved. It Depends on what you want and your child's ability. There are way to many parents paying $3k a year for their child to play on a rec team.

So the 1st criteria decided it all. If you found a good coach, you'll have the good environment and good teammates. If you found a rec level coach, you'll have everything at rec level.
