Competitive Small-side league for High School aged players
I coach a team of current 8th graders. Some are interested in playing in HS, but the players have a WIDE range of skill levels. My team stayed together through the toughest parts of the pandemic, and many of them play just to be with their friends. We lose the majority of our games in our current bracket, because 1) I'm a volunteer coach and 2) the boys are not disciplined. I want them to keep playing because they love soccer. What is the Varsity landscape like for a team coming from the Recreational division?
