I am getting really frustrated with my son's team. They make noise about being "an elite team" but have 3 hours of practice per week, and a game or two, for a total of 5 hours of soccer per week I know they are not in the academy program, but the cost is well over $2,000 so I expected an adequate amount of training. We have supplemented his training, so that he was up to 8 hours per week in the winter, but we would like him to play for other teams to get more training and get up to 12 or even better 15 hours per week. His goal is to play in college or the pros. He is HS-aged. That made me wonder - how much training are other kids getting? If your kid is 12 or older, how many hours per week is the club providing plus how many hours are you paying for soccer training and/or games outside the club?
