K League Youth coaches to follow "The West Ham Way" -
"Enjoyable football, player development, fun training, raising creative players, etc."
"It's important that the player learns and finds solutions by himself rather than being told all the time. It is important to wait patiently during this process."
Appreciate your update.
One more year...one more year...
They should let U18 players play on the senior team without a pro contract. Do they have a reason not to let this happen?
hyungnims have to play you know
It's only a rule made by the K League draft that you must be over 18 to play in pro league unless you dropout of school. This rule was made because of the domination of 학원축구 but it doesnt really suit the situation now because K League youth clubs have risen and are bigger.
With the draft completely gone in 2016, there's a great chance that pro debut age limit could be changed. By Korean law, we could have a 13 year old playing K League if the age limit is no longer in use by the League.
But the problem is not that. It's almost impossible to let an U-18 player to play in the pro without signing a pro contract because it's almost impossible to play pro football and continue education at the same time.
With a schedule where you have to travel across the country to play away matches, you cannot have education at the same time.
People always complain and whinge about how we should follow the English football system or Spanish or whatever. But thats impossible with the culture we live with. In a country like ours where education is an important part of our society, we cannot follow a different country's system. There's a reason why majority of young players go for U-league football rather than going straight to pro.
The pro world is tough to survive for a young kid. Pro coaches do tend to rely on older players (mainly because they need results straightaway) and with a big squad a young kid is always going to be ignored. R-league was a big help for clubs that have alot of players. But thats gone.
Loaning for experience is a good thing to do, and K League Challenge has helped widen the loaning culture of players. But we need more leagues and more teams to have more young kids. With exception like Hwang Hee-chan and other top top prospects, the chances of survival at the pro league is too little.
The league can change the rules anyday, especially that the draft is disappearing. But they need to find how to work with education and football in the same category to make it happen. Unfortunately thats the hardest part.
It is rare that a young prospect at age of 18 or 19 takes a starting spot on the first team straight away from U-18 level.
That's why U-League is a great system for such players: 1) It provides professional in-game experiences for them; 2) The players can develop their game and learn how to control tempo as each team plays minimum of 18-20 matches per year in this competition; 3) They have to perform well academically which will help them in their future if they fail to become a full-time professional (or even fail to make the National League clubs).
Suwon U-12 team won the Suwon football festival. MVP was Kang Yoon-Gu from Suwon and top scorer was Jung Sang-Won from Iho elementary.
