Tryout season will be coming up...my son is wanting to tryout at other clubs. Our son has been with our current club since he was U6...going into U15 for 2017/2018 season. He wants to play at a different level, and does not want to be with the current coach he has. I'm not sure how I feel about this, ultimately his decision. I'm not sure the grass is greener on the other side. Some background. His first 4 years he got lucky with 2 great Coaches. The right mix of discipline, development, and fun. Then tryouts, he makes the Select 2 team, he's happy we're happy. He's with a good Coach that knows the game, and he respects him. After the 2 years with the team he gets cut down to Select 3. Life lessons suck, but part of the game. He also was waiting for surgery on a sleep disorder that most likely lead to the cut, he did slow down. New team new Coach again, but he's doing awesome, determine to prove the old Coach wrong for cutting him. Metro tryout coming up, he's working his ass off to prepare. He nails the tryouts, (when you overhear other people pointing out your son to their own kids you know he showed well) He doesn't make the team...For the past 2 years he also developed severs in his heels, and osgoods in his knees, (grew 8 inches in a year) so played on and off, and didn't do well last years tryouts after a 2 month break of soccer. This year he's at the top of his game, shows up at all the practices and games, even when half the team never shows...training and kicking a ball everyday. He currently plays Gold level, really wants Metro and will leave our Club to get it.
