I coach a U13 Div 1 team , and I am wondering everyone thoughts on what is a reasonable commitment expectation for this level. I would love for this level to be more committed but reality is there is a very recreational attitude among many of the players and parents. Kids want to play other sports, especially school sports which I want to be supporting. I am thinking the following: I will hold 2 practices a week - I expect everyone to make effort to be at both. I will work with both parents and the player if they need to miss practices for another sport especially school sports. I still think at Div 1 soccer should be the primary choice, so missing practices for games or tournaments is ok I struggle with missing practice because of another practice. I would like to also offer a third fitness focus session that would not be mandatory. Playing time preferences will be given to those who attend both practices and also given to those with the best efforts at practice. So while I support playing other sports you may not get as much playing time if others are showing well and attending both practices. Is this a reasonable expectation?
