Excellent post Humbaby, all this BS from KSHSSA about "protecting the player" but an absolute disregard for quality referees that should control the game and limit dirty, dangerous play. The rule about attending training with a college tea

Intentional trips, two hand shoves, rugby tackles, etc are just flat out dirty play. These plays are not tolerated in high school basketball and would result in technicals and ejections. Another example of disregard for soccer and its participant

Dwyer is an athlete playing soccer, not a footballer. Nemeth for comparison is a footballer but not much of an athlete. If Dwyer had half the football ability Nemeth has, then his game would be completely different.

My daughter complained about a hand ball and the ref told her he's not calling them. Then smugly said "at least I'm consistent". Again, would not be tolerated in football, basketball or baseball. No accountability breads poor performance.

Wilson I have seen so many fouls in the box this high school season with no call at all. I mean blatant two hand shoves to the ground. Taking out people from behind. It has been brutal. I have no idea what to do about it, but I agree it is bad.

Last night was a great microcosm of Dwyer. Beautiful goal. Two one on one with the goalie that any decent professional forward should score on .....nothing. The one it seems as if he forgot you have to dribble the ball. He just kept running and l

And another. Seven yellow cards in the game and I've seen far worse infractions in most HS games.

I'm watching the Everton vs Chelsea game. Trip from behind = a yellow card. What a novel idea.

Good article find, PC1. Thanks. The choice should be up to the player and parents. Additionally, current high school rules forbid players from participating in college training sessions. What this means is, although players may make visits during t

The HS soccer experience depends mostly on the coach who impacts a kids individual experience based on a. the style of play, b. substitutions, c. the desire to win and d. being able to evaluate talent. Also what formation fits that talent.

Tactical periodization is more of a holistic approach to the game rather than a training of different parts of the game. Mourinho is the most successful disciple of this school of training. Here is a good article about it from a couple of days ago.

I got to see the positive side of HS last night. The team played against the big rival school. The girls really really played hard and left it all on the field. Big crowd to play in front of. When they won they all dove into a big pile. It clear

Well said Slide. One of my big issues is that some coaches don't really play to win by not putting the best 11 on the field. That would never fly in football, basketball, baseball, etc. A football coach starting a senior quarterback just because he w
