High School Level Youth Soccer Players

We're a little embarrassed we didn't think of this one ourselves...

Our new topic page will be targeted for discussions of high school level play. If the page becomes popular, we will break it into boy / girl down the road.

My thought is that by the time kids get on a U18 team, they either are committed or they are decent but not committed.

My son's team is ranked highly, but they struggle to get 22 people at practices and 16 at tournaments.

I am hearing a lot of the U16G coaches are telling their players not to play HS soccer next year.

Makes sense from a scholarship perspective, as you don't want girls getting hurt going into the committ period, but it sucks for the social aspect of HS.

Most HS Coaches are also club coaches now. Some HSs in this region are extremely good and there is a huge benefit in playing HS, but if the HS is average at best, better to not risk injury. Winning and/or losing 6-0 does nothing but stats like ecnl.
