U13 - U14 Age Groups
At this age most players have figured out whether or not they fully want to commit to soccer or continue to engage in other sports as well. These decisions should not be forced and should be made by the player him or herself. Although players are playing in the same age group the chances are that players differ drastically in maturity and physical development, especially on the boys’ side. This is definitely an aspect that all trainers/coaches need to be aware working with a team in this age group.
