This article adddresses what higher up minds in this country think about our state as a country in youth development. Pretty interesting:
“It’s no surprise that a boy like Christian is progressing right now at Dortmund, because technically he’s very, very good. He’s very intelligent, but that technical piece is massive. If you can’t hang in a session technically, it doesn’t matter how strong you are, how fast you are, even how intelligent you are, really. If you can’t hang technically, then you’ll be found out immediately. People won’t pass you the ball any more. Everything will break down on you. So to me that’s the biggest part.” – Danny Karbassiyoon (Arsenal Scout born in the US)
As a youth coach you have to be accountable to teaching players the simple technique to pass and receive. ALL our players have to master this attribute by the time they are 16. Unfortunately this is not even close of being the case. Great article, READ BELOW:

Do I have an answer to this? Probably not. I do feel however that this may be a starting point to address the issues within youth development in our country. I have posted an article below which talks about the pay-to-play model in America. In the end no matter where you are living in this country, we need more players, coaches and people to strive to make a positive impact within our community for the love of the game. With this passion, we can potentially give more players the opportunity to grow as players and more importantly as people.
