Word on the street is that the US has 10 million kids playing soccer/futbol, but doesn’t have the talented world-class players (in sufficient number) that should result from those kids. No American superstars
The blame is placed on the regimented nature of the sport, which is suburban, lots of drills, practices, not much playing.
So they are doing this ‘stret soccer’ where organizers/low-level-coaches go to playing fields and bring the balls and maybe a moveable net, and organize the teams, but there is very little to no actually coaching, they let the kids play, poor boy style, no refs or practices. They want to get the poor folks in on it you see.
Will this work, or is it more bull honkey?
