My son is 7 and plays soccer in the local rec league. He sucks as does misery of the rest of his team. They don’t pay attention and screw around most of the time while other teams score all over them. There are some teams that play actual soccer instead of fucking around. This league still doesn’t keep formal score and teams are never declared winner. Records aren’t kept and everyone gets a trophy. I.think this is unfair to the teams that actually play.the.game to learn and win.
When I was his age playing minor league baseball we kept score and win loss records. We got killed every week and we all survived. My coach could yell at us to stop fucking around and pull kids that wouldn’t listen. Coaches can’t yell anymore or sit a kid.
I think my son is at the age where he should care about winning and losing. They should keep score and track the teams record and placing. My son doesn’t care about winning and losing and I think he should.
What do you think about the pussification of youth sports in the US and when should scores and records be tracked ?
