Your Letters & Pictures
A breath of fresh air.
Dear coach Gianni
Just wanted you to know how refreshing your article was in the Soccer California newsletter about our youth playing so many games and tournaments during the year.
We had to take our daughter off her River City United competitive team mostly because of the ridiculously intense commitment that it involved: tons of travel, games and tournaments year round and just way too much soccer all around- particularly when she was only 11!!.
It just seemed absurd and bound to burn her out by the time she was 14. It is ashame too because she went with her team to the State Cup Finals last year, but we simply want her to have more family time and down time to pursue other things as well.
Anyway, your point of view is a breath of fresh air. Anything you can do to "trickle down" your feelings to other coaches and teams in CYSA would be greatly appreciated!!!
